...but...you're right? Two commas indicated a section that adds additional information that can be taken out. Meaning the sentence will be a fully formed sentence without it.

"Most of the laugh tracks you hear on television were recorded in the 1950's are dead."

The comma before 'are dead'. 'are dead' cannot stand alone. And if we were to take both commas, they ought to indicate that the part of the sentence within them could be omitted and the sentence in it's entirety would still make sense.

That would then read that the laughter tracks filmed in the 1950s (there's an extraneous apostrophe in that up there too) are dead. They were never alive to begin with, they're recordings.

Thanks for the thumbs down people, learn basic grammar before you thumb.

Well that's just ridiculous.

Maybe '... are dead.' would work. Adds tension and everything.

But using a comma incorrectly like that is, just silly.

See, I added emphasis to 'just silly'. Doesn't look daft at all does it?

Also, clearly atleast 16 thick people care.
