Question: Do the networks have some sort of love-hate relationship with one-camera comedies? I have found most of them hilarious, but the minute I get attached, they're gone.

Am I the only one who rolls on the floor laughing when these shows come on? Or do they not attract the target demographic? I love the CBS Monday night traditional comedies (with the possible exception of Two and a Half Men and the David Spade one), but what about the one-camera comedies? Are they the future or the past?
