Goofy ol' Raymond refuses to properly pack for a trip because that's "a woman's job" -- but without the benefit of the unseen audience's reaction, all we see is a genuinely frustrated and downtrodden wife, furious at her husband's petty behavior. And so on -- from the heights of Frasier to the depths of 2 Broke Girls and Two And A Half Men, every "comedy" show is secretly a collection of awkward scenes featuring hateful people who only ever laugh when they're being sarcastic (or insane). If they didn't share those giant lavish apartments, there's no way these people would put up with each other.
In the more modern style of single-camera style sitcoms (that is, the ones without laugh tracks), the only difference is that there's no soul-crushing pauses -- characters in Brooklyn Nine-Nine or 30 Rock just humorlessly jump right to the next line, completely ignoring the previous slapstick comedy beat or creative insult. You almost have to admire the ones who continue to quip in such a world, knowing that their wit will always be met with stone-faced indifference.
