<i>Trophy Wife</i>: A Traditional Family Sitcom, Minus the Laugh Track

I should state from the get-go that I am actually not a big fan of laugh tracks, despite my argument for them in this particular review. Laugh tracks have always felt like a cheap way of telling the audience, "You should be laughing right now!" It's even more baffling when there's absolutely nothing to be laughing about as a studio audience whoops it up for every punch line.

With some dismal comedies already cancelled (We Are Men, Welcome to the Family) and others whose success we simply cannot comprehend (The Millers, Dads), it was starting to feel like there was no hope in sight for a worthwhile new comedy for the fall 2013 season. While Brooklyn Nine-Nine has begun to fill the 30 Rock-sized hole in our hearts that longs for off-beat humor, there was nothing that seemed to resemble a worthwhile family comedy. That was until Trophy Wife -- in spite of its misleading, Cougar Town-esque name -- not only gave us one of most likable new TV broods, but one of the most sincere and funny shows of the fall. Here's why we think it's the one new show to stand out in the over-saturated family comedy television landscape.
