I don't watch TV at all. In fact last time I owned one was back in 2012.

Huh. IIRC, M*A*S*H in the German version doesn't have any laugh tracks. My brother used to watch it a lot in the 90s.

There were two comedy programs way back which claimed they were "filmed before a live studio audience." All in the Family and Hee Haw. The thing is, they never showed the audience. I had to endure as I was still in high school until the spring of 1973. I was really pleased to get my first job, in the evening, so I could be away from all that at home.

And, the reason there was no laugh track for other language markets should be obvious.

In that "day and age," you had a video channel and one or two audio channels.

When "dubbed" the audio channel(s) were replaced. Generally without the laugh tracks.

Some engineers were particularly good, and could actually filter out noise between the two audio channels.
