A sound engineer of 30 years who was in the audience writes that audio portions of Sarah Palin's Tuesday appearance on Jay Leno's Tonight Show were added or amplified, edited before broadcast to make it appear that she was more welcome than she was. They added laughter where there was none during uncomfortable portions...
Tonight Show Added Laugh Track to Sarah Palin

Was Sarah Palin's Tonight Show Set 'Sweetened?' - mediabistro.com: FishbowlLA


I was wondering how an L.A. audience could be laughing so hard at Sarah Palin's jokes. This explains it. They weren't.

Why is Palin going on all of these shows and trying to get famous? She's governor of Alaska, let's keep her that way. Ok?

Jay Leno's show always has had laugh tracks. Especially since Leno hasn't been funny since the very early 90's. Kind of hard to believe how good he used to be compared to now.

I'm not a fan of Palin but I thought her ability to engage in some humor directed at herself was fun. The jokes seemed to often return to some Alaska cliche though- not that funny. I'd like to see Robin Williams do more commentary on Palin.

Ugghh, can't stand Robin Williams. Sure, we both have good taste in films, but eh.

Shocking. All shows add laugh tracks for comedy.

Uh..no. But maybe we should believe an insane leftist with PDS syndrome? From the DKos no less. That just happened to go when Palin was going to be there....maybe for the express purpose of "manufacturing" the story?

Uh huh.

Funny, other people that were there tell a different story.

Did Jay Leno Fake The Audience’s Response To Sarah Palin? | Mediaite

Update: A reader writes “I was there while visiting my sister in CA. He’s wrong, people were laughing and I didn’t notice anything strange. The sign was turned on when we were supposed to applaud and laugh.”

Update again: A number of readers point out the Twitter feeds of the couple (@jsigwart, @symbolman) do not, in fact, suggest there was no laughter, merely that they were the ones guffawing:
Just another manufactured story from the insane PDS lefties.

Wow, they even told the audience when to laugh and applaud....but wait!...don't they always have those signs?

I toured The Tonight Show studio in New York back in 1972 when Johnny Carson was the host before it moved to LA. What struck me was how small it was, maybe 75 seats, with mirrors on the back wall. Someone asked what they were for and the answer was, "to make the audience seem larger." The studio also had Applause signs hanging down.

I'm hyperactive so relate to his style But it's cool, yes, we do have good taste in film. IMO at least Got some freshly viewed ones I should post about actually...

Speaking of film, I'd prefer to see a documentary about Track's experience overseas anyday over a monologue by Palin.
