I've often enjoyed that when I sit down to relax and watch a sitcom, it is almost always enjoyable with little surprise, but chock-full of quick wit and humor.
As with any arena rife with opportunity to make money, it becomes analyzed and deconstructed until the "secret" is exposed, documented, and exploited.
An excellent article in The Atlantic by Noah Charney has published a concise and articulate description of the sitcom formula. As I sat reading it, the realization of just how accurate this was washed over me. I enjoyed the realization and look forward to recognizing it in shows going forward.
