Yesterday's Craig Ferguson thread
was kicked off with a comment by argedee: "I could be that funny too, with a laugh track like that." The thread turned into a discussion about laugh tracks and whether Craig uses one or not. In his monologue last night, Craig addressed "rumors on the internet" that his audience laughter isn't real. Argedee got called out on late night TV!

"Yes, they're an audience machine operated by a teamster backstage. There are two things we can be sure of: I'm not funny and they're not an audience machine! Don't you ever call my friends an audience machine again." Craig is mad at us.
The Late Late Show page's clip
of Craig's monologue cuts out the rumored laugh track part of the discussion, but you can still hear him call the audience an audience machine from time to time.
