The sitcom The Monkees, which first aired on NBC in September of 1966, won two
Emmy Awards in 1967: Outstanding comedy Series and Outstanding Directorial
Achievement in Comedy (James Frawley).
Most of the episodes from the second season of the show didn’t use a laugh track,
which was the common practice at the time. The non-use of canned laughter was
used by NBC as one of several reasons for cancelling the series.
