DanWarp Sings In The Car

While driving home from the supermarket, I sang this song (somone else was holding the camera in front of me).  I hope this song makes you think, and that you find it meaningful in some way.

Last Night's "Big Bang Theory" - 3 Best Jokes

As you know, I'm a big fan of The Big Bang Theory.  Therefore, I've decided that after each episode, I will tell you the three best jokes (in blue) from that episode. 

(In no particular order...)

LEONARD (SHUSHING SHELDON): "Duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh!"
SHELDON:  If that's morse code that's terrible.

PENNY (UPSET): "Fine?!"  You said it was "fine?!"
LEONARD:  It's a perfectly good word.  You put it in front of "wine" or "dining" and you've really got something.

SHELDON:  Yiddish was not spoken in East Texas.  And if it was, it wasn't spoken for long.

End.

The Issue with "iThink They Kissed"

As you may know, in my Fun Facts for iThink They Kissed, I wrote this:

I'll admit right now... some hardcore iCarly fans will have a slight issue (problem) with a specific situation this scene.  It's nothing major, but one could argue a logic problem if you know iCarly very well.  However, I have a good defense. ;)  It'll be interesting to see if any super-fans notice and bring up the issue that I'm talking about.  If they do, I'm ready to respond.

And now I'm responding...

Over 14? Love iCarly and Victorious? NO, you are NOT Weird!

I've been meaning to write about this for a long time.  Adults who like iCarly and Victorious.  If that subject interests you...

iCarly! Which Sam-Drumming Shot To Use?

Hey iCarly fans! As you might know, the NEW OPENING CREDITS will air this coming Saturday night with the episode iThink They Kissed.

To finish the new opening credits, we need to decide between two (very similar) "Sam" shots.

Both shots show Sam playing Rock Band drums.

In Shot A, Sam is drumming with a big smile on her face.

In Shot B, Sam is drumming more intensly.

I like both shots a lot. The Schnneider's Bakery team is split on which one to use.  So, we thought we'd take it to the fans.

Which Sam-drumming shot do YOU think we should use for the new opening credits?

Laugh Tracks on TV Shows

I'm asked about laugh tracks so often, I thought I'd write a post about it.  Warning: Only read this if you're really interested in the subject of laugh tracks!  Otherwise, this is gonna be extremely boring to you...

LAUGH TRACKS

When you hear people talk about laugh tracks, it's usually a negative comment.  Some people feel they're dumb, or cheesy, or insulting, or all of the above. 

Okay.  Before we talk about laugh tracks, first we should discuss the difference between a multi-camera TV show and a single-camera TV show.

(I've tried to explain the difference to many people in my personal life, and I'm often met with glazed-over, confused reactions.  I'll try to do better here...)

MULTI-CAMERA TV SHOWS

Today, when you hear the term "multi-camera" about a TV show, it usually refers to a half-hour situation comedy: a sitcom.

The multi-camera sitcom format started with I Love Lucy.  Before then, most TV comedies had been shot just like movies (called "single-camera"). 

Well, Lucy and Desi had a new idea.  They decided to film I Love Lucy like a play in front of a live audience.  They felt this would give the show more of a fun, energetic, "live theater" feel.  And by hearing the laughs, the home audience would feel more like they were sitting in the actual studio audience, watching the play, and could laugh along with everybody else.

To film the show, they decided to use three cameras to cover all the action.  The audience sat in bleachers behind the cameras which faced the sets and actors.

The modern multi-camera sitcom was born.  Yee-hoo!

Today, multi-camera shows are shot pretty much the exact same way.  The only major difference is that, now, four cameras are used instead of three.

Some examples of modern multi-camera sitcoms are Friends... Seinfeld... The Big Bang Theory... Cheers... Family Ties... The Cosby Show... Full House... Drake & Josh... iCarly... etc.  With all these shows you can hear laughs following the jokes.

SINGLE-CAMERA TV SHOWS

A single-camera TV show is shot like a movie.  There's no "live theater" feel at all.  You'll never hear an audience.  Usually, when talking about single-camera shows, you think of one-hour dramas like Lost... Heroes... CSI... House... Grey's Anatomy... etc.

But you've also seem some half-hour single camera shows.  For example: Entourage... The Office... Sex And The City... Malcolm In The Middle... The Wonder Years...

And even though half-hour single camera shows are often comedies, you'll never hear a laugh track.  Because they're aren't intended to "feel" like they're shot in front of a live audience, as multi-camera shows are.

Now here's where it gets a little confusing...

Back in the 60's and 70's, they did make single-camera comedies where you could hear a laugh track.  Example are I Dream Of Jeanie... Bewitched... Gilligan's Island... The Beverly Hillbillies... Green Acres...  Hogan's Heroes... Get Smart... Gomer Pyle... The Brady Bunch... The Partridge Family... etc.  All those shows did have laugh tracks which (in most people's opinion) sounded fake and cheesy.

But now, you'll almost never see a single-camera sitcom with a laugh track.  It's considered outdated.

Point of Interest: One of the first showrunners to take a stand against a laugh-track on a single-camera comedy was Larry Gelbart who ran M*A*S*H.  He knew it was cheesy to hear audience laughs on a single-camera show because they're not filmed in a live-audience style setting.  But the networks (back then) thought all comedies had to have laughs, so they fought Gelbart.  Finally, they arrived at a compromise: Gelbart agreed to have laughs on M*A*S*H, but not during scenes in the operating room.  If you ever catch a rerun of a M*A*S*H episode, you'll see (hear).  The laughs disappear during scenes in the O.R. when the surgeons are operating on patients.

Back to multi-camera comedies (sitcoms)...

A lot of people seem to think the laughs they're hearing are always "laugh tracks" created by a machine.  That's only partly true.

In the tradition of I Love Lucy, most multi-camera comedies are filmed in front of a live studio audience.  Real, living, breathing people who came to watch a comedy and laugh out loud.  So, during the filming, the audience laughs at the jokes (we hope). 

So later, when you're watching the show at home on your television, many of the laughs you're hearing are real – coming from the actual live audience that was there watching the show as it was filmed.

And now you ask me: "But Dan, then why do we often hear the term laugh TRACK?"

Good question.

When you're making a multi-camera comedy, shot in front of a live audience, sometimes you might do many takes of a scene.  In fact, you almost never shoot a scene only once.  On average, there are 3 or 4 takes of every scene.  And sometimes you can have many more takes than that.

When an audience sees the same scene four times (or more), they're probably not going to laugh as hard, or the same way, as they did during take one.

Also, sometimes you don't shoot the whole show in front of the live audience.  If you're doing a scene that's complicated (like one that requires stunts or special effects), you may have to "pre-shoot" that scene when there is no audience present to laugh.

Later, when the show is assembled in post production, a "machine" is used to make the laughs sound consistent and complete from the beginning of the show to the end.  This machine is what people often refer to as "the laugh track".

Another very important element is the skill-level of the "laugh guy" (the man or woman who operates the machine).  Some are more skilled than others in making the laughs sound real.  At Schneider's Bakery, we've tried several of them over the years.  And now we only use one person for all our shows – we think he's the best, by far.

If the "laugh guy" is skilled enough, and is guided properly by a show's producer, the home audience should not be able to tell the difference between the real audience laughter and the machine-generated laughter.  (By the way, even the "machine-generated" laughter is real.  It's a recording of real humans sitting in an audience, laughing.  So, technically, there's no such thing as "fake" laughs.)

Granted, some producers over-use the machine-generated laughs.  I do my best to avoid that.  When I'm mixing the audio for a show, I'll often say, "No, don't put a laugh there" or "Wait, that laugh is too big – let's use a smaller laugh there".  Because you can definitely over-laugh a show.  I don't want to name names, but some sitcoms are definitely over laughed.

SO WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED?
  • When you're watching a multi-camera sitcom like Friends... Seinfeld... Full House... you're often hearing very real laughs from the real studio audience.  And you're also hearing some machine-generated laughs, so that the whole show sounds even and right.
  • When you hear someone say, "Man, I don't like hearing the laughs.  I wish they'd just get rid of them." – that's silly (for a multi-camera show). That would be like going to a comedy play, sitting in the audience with lots of people, and never hearing anyone laugh.  It'd be weird.  It makes complete sense to hear an audience laugh when a show is shot in front of (or as if in front of) a live studio audience.
  • And we've learned that some shows do over-use the laugh track, which is something I always try to avoid.
Thanks for watching.  And laughing.

TV Theme Songs - My Opinion

A fan emailed me saying how much she loves the theme songs to Drake & Josh and iCarly, and how she's sad that most TV shows today have (basically) no theme songs.  I couldn't agree more.  It's very sad and dumb.

You've probably noticed over the past 15 years that theme songs have slowly disappeared from TV shows.  They're not completely gone yet, but they're fading into extinction.

Why has this happened, you ask?  The reason...

The big networks feel that TV theme songs are a waste of air-time.  They'd rather use the time for an extra commercial. 

What these network executives don't understand is how a theme song is often the soul of a TV show.  The magic. 

Here's a little story...

One night in the early summer of 1994, Matthew Perry showed up at my house in Laurel Canyon.  He had a VHS tape in his hand – the studio cut of a new pilot he'd just shot.  Matt popped the tape into my VCR and we watched the pilot.  It was called (at that time) Friends Like Us.  I thought it was good.  Not awesome, but good.  I told Matt I thought the show had a real chance of making it. 

CUT TO: September 1994.

I turned on NBC and watched the premiere of the pilot Matt had shown me.   The name of the show had been changed from Friends Like Us to just Friends.  But the huge difference was the newly added theme song (and the images that went along with it, which are called the "main titles").

When I'd watched the studio cut of the pilot, I thought it would probably be a hit.  But when I saw the finished version on TV with those main titles and that awesome theme song, "So no one told you life was gonna be this way... CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP..." I thought, "Okay, this show's gonna be HUGE."  It was just obvious.  That theme song added POWER – a huge splash of magic to the show.  It felt like a hit before the first scene started.

Think about eliminating the theme song from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.  Can you imagine that show without its theme song and main titles?  I swear, I think that song is half the reason the show is so fondly remembered today.

I realize that some of you reading this are too young to remember some of the shows I'm about to mention, but...

Try to imagine Cheers without "Makin' your way in the world today takes everything you've got..."

Try to imagine Family Ties without "What would we do, baby, without us..."

Try to imagine The Mary Tyler Moore Show without "Who can turn the world on with her smile..."

Try to imagine All In The Family without "Boy the way Glenn Miller played..."

The Simpsons... Happy Days... M*A*S*H... The Rockford Files... Hill Street Blues... and even sillier shows like Gilligan's Island... The Brady Bunch... The Beverly Hillbillies...

All those shows were practically defined by their theme songs.

And can you imagine Drake & Josh without "Well I never knew it would be so simple but, I found a way, I found a way..."

Or iCarly without "I know, you see, somehow the world will change for me and be so wonderful..."

If you take away those shows' theme songs, you take away a lot of their magic.  Their soul.  They just wouldn't be the same or so fondly remembered.  I think almost every fan would agree. 

It sucks that most of today's network bigwigs don't get it. 

Luckily, a few showrunners today fight the big networks and win approval to have a theme song – not a 60-second song (like the good old days), but sometimes they'll get approval for a 20 or 30 second theme song.  An example is The Big Bang Theory – a great show with a perfect theme song that gives the show its soul.  Once you fall in love with it, those first few bars, "Our whole universe was in a hot dense state..." make you smile and want to sit down and watch.

I'm glad that Nickelodeon is on my side.  My shows will always begin with a great, 60-second kick-ass theme song. 

'Cuz that's how television should be.

iCarly: When Fans Assume...

I just checked my DanWarp email and I got this charming message: why did u have to post that page where freddie said he dosnt love carly anymore?? why do u half to suckup to seddie!!?? that sux!!!!

I've actually gotten 10 or 11 similar emails, all about equally eloquent.  So maybe we should talk about this...

It's always perplexing to me how some fans can take a tiny piece of knowledge, make assumptions, draw conclusions, and then just decide that their conclusions are reality.

Now some people might say, "Well Dan, if the script page you posted wasn't supposed to lead us in a clear direction, then why post it at all? Why tease us?"

It's pretty much the same thing as an on-air promo or a trailer for a movie. They show you bits and pieces, the goal being to intrigue and excite the audience. Personally, I wouldn't like a promo or a trailer that revealed too much. It would spoil the show for me.

For example, remember the promos for Friends? Remember how they'd show you quick clips, and you'd hear the voice-over guy say stuff like, "A new romance for Rachel..." – but they wouldn't reveal specifics.

Were they being mean? I don't think so. They were letting you know there would be new relationship twists, but they didn't want to spoil the reveal – they wanted to keep the show fun and exciting to watch. What jerks, huh?

Back to iCarly. Although the script page was intriguing, it really didn't reveal anything.

I don't mean to get all "educational" on you guys (I hated school, myself), but it's time for a little crash course in creative writing. Who's not ready?  Good.   Here we go...

First, let's take a look at the script page that a few super-reactive fans freaked out about.  It went like this:

FREDDIE: Can we just not talk about it?
CARLY: No, we can't not just talk about it. 
FREDDIE: But my mom's waiting for me to-- 
CARLY: I don't care. Are you in love? 
FREDDIE: (AVOIDING THE QUESTION) Sooo... what was in that chicken pot pie?  I mean, I know "chicken" obviously, but what other-- 
CARLY: Are you in love or not? 
FREDDIE: (LONG BEAT, THEN)  Yes. 
CARLY: (SIGHS) But you promised.  You said you wouldn't fall in love with me as long as-- 
FREDDIE: I didn't say I was in love with you.
CARLY LOOKS AT FREDDIE -- SHE'S VERY CONFUSED.

Yep.  That's what caused me to get at least a dozen emails from fans, upset about the "direction" iCarly was taking (in terms of relationships/dating).

Really guys?  Does that one page of dialogue really give you any definitive information? (Hint: It doesn't.)

But in case you don't believe me, I'll prove it to you.  I'm going to start with the last two lines of dialogue on that page, and then I'll write a few more lines of dialogue for you, just to illustrate what a writer can do.

*** EXAMPLE #1 ***

CARLY: (SIGHS) But you promised. You said you wouldn't fall in love with me as long as-- 
FREDDIE: I didn't say I was in love with you. 
CARLY: (RELIEVED) Oh, good.  So you're not in love with me. 
FREDDIE: (SHEEPISH) No, I am.  I was just embarrassed to say it out loud. 
CARLY: (ROLLS HER EYES) Aw, Freddie.

*** EXAMPLE #2 ***

CARLY: (SIGHS) But you promised. You said you wouldn't fall in love with me as long as-- 
FREDDIE: I didn't say I was in love with you. 
CARLY: Thank God.
FREDDIE: I texted it. 
CARLY: You texted--
CARLY CHECKS HER PEAR PHONE AND SEES "I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU" FROM FREDDIE.
CARLY: Aw, Freddie, whyyyy?!

*** EXAMPLE #3 ***

CARLY: (SIGHS) But you promised. You said you wouldn't fall in love with me as long as-- 
FREDDIE: I didn't say I was in love with you. 
CARLY: (REALIZES) Oh my God! You're in love with Sam?!?! 
FREDDIE: (INCREDULOUS) What?!?!  No!!!  Are you insane?!  I'd rather have a colonoscopy than spend one night with Sam. 
CARLY: Well, then who are you in love with? 
FREDDIE: (BEAT) You really want me to tell you?

*** EXAMPLE #4 ***

CARLY: (SIGHS) But you promised.  You said you wouldn't fall in love with me as long as-- 
FREDDIE: I didn't say I was in love with you. 
CARLY: Then who are you in love with? 
FREDDIE: (LONG BEAT, THEN)  Sam.
CARLY STARES AT FREDDIE FOR A FEW SECONDS, THEN SHE CALMLY PICKS UP HER PHONE AND DIALS 3 DIGITS.
CARLY: (INTO PHONE)  Yes, I need an ambulance at Bushwell Plaza...

*** EXAMPLE #5 ***

CARLY: (SIGHS) But you promised. You said you wouldn't fall in love with me as long as-- 
FREDDIE: I didn't say I was in love with you. 
CARLY: Okay. So... who are you in love with? 
FREDDIE: (BEAT)  Gibby. 
CARLY: (LONG BEAT, THEN)  I'm gonna go make some rice.
--------------------------------------------------------------

See?

You saw a page.  One page.

As of now, there are only 5 other people on Earth who know what's on the next page.  Unless you're one of them, please keep an open imagination.

Thanks.

iCarly: Second Season? Third Season? Huh?!?

Yo Hobos!

Recently, my Twitter and DanWarp gmail have been filled with iCarly questions about when the 2nd season ends, and when the 3rd one begins.

Believe it or not, I kinda don't even know myself. Well, I do and I don't. I'll explain...

On most prime time shows, the "seasons" are very clear. Generally you start writing in June... start shooting in August... you shoot 22 episodes... then you wrap (end shooting) in February. That's your season.

So, when the shows air, it's very easy to say, "Oh, that's an episode from season one" (or whatever). It's clear cut because the production season was clear cut.

But on iCarly we seem to never stop shooting episodes! We have an insane schedule.

I shot the pilot of iCarly in January of 2007. And about three weeks ago we completed the seventieth episode (in August '09). Yep. Seventy episodes in just two years (if you subtract the WGA strike). That's a crazy pace by anyone's standards in television. I don't know if you can find any scripted TV show that's made that many episodes that fast.

Currently, there are somewhere around 21 episodes of iCarly you haven't seen yet. The ones airing now are the 2nd season. I think the 2nd season began with the episode iSaw Him First.

And I guess what the network is calling the "3rd" season starts airing a few weeks from now. That's when you'll start seeing the new opening sequence (I haven't decided whether or not to keep the Spencer-Ostrich shot yet, but most people say "Keep it!").

And there you have it.

• We're in the 2nd season now.

• The 3rd season starts airing in a few weeks (with a new opening sequence).

• There are many new episodes of iCarly to come.

Now, since I've answered your questions... will someone please tell my why I seem to have more hair in my ears now than I did 10 years ago? Why does God play this cruel joke on men?

I'm going to get the tweezers.

Luv,
--Dan :)
