sweetening
 n.— «I’m not going to claim that nothing I ever wrote or produced got juiced up in post-production. But I never had anything to do with the laugh-track process—called sweetening. I always left that to the line producer, and my instructions were to add laughs only when a joke didn’t get a fair shake in front of a live audience.» —“Exclusive Interview: Bill Bryan” by Cameron Hughes Cinematic Happenings Under Development Jan. 2, 2008.
