* VileVillainSaccharineShow: While you maybe can't call it a ''saccharine'' show, this was still a sitcom, where the main characters were funny despite all of their flaws. But there was a big exception: Alan's first ex-wife Judith. Despite being a sitcom character, she was never funny. And even though she had already kicked Alan out of their house and gotten the right to an extremely high alimony, which had given Alan no choice but to live with his brother Charlie, she loved to destroy his life even further and extort even ''more'' money from him. She also seemed to have no love for her son Jake, and still had the nerve to complain at ''Alan's'' parenting skills. And it became obvious that she treated her new husband, Herb, just as badly as she had treated Alan. And except for one episode, where she actually allowed Alan to live with her and Herb after he had a fight with Charlie (which was very out of character for her), she had no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

* BigBad:
** Rose seem to be the closet thing the show had to one, though the GrandFinale reveals the true one for the whole series, if not the last four seasons is [[spoiler:[[InVerse Chuck Lorre]]]].
** Judith was really bad as well (see "Vile Villain, Saccharine Show").

* ScrewTheElectricBill: An episode restored some comedy after a dramatic scene: Charlie, exhausted from the drama, turns out the light and climbs up to bed. Then, the camera pans to reveal the rest of the family, still at the dinner table, wondering what just happened.

* ViewersAreMorons: The episode "Does This Smell Funny To You?" has a subplot about Jake not being able to find his Gameboy. When he does eventually find it, it's actually a NintendoDS. Apparently the writers thought viewers wouldn't know what a DS was almost two years after the DS came out. It is possible that Jake was just calling it a Gameboy, though (as many people in real life did at the time).

** In "West Side Story", Larry and Lyndsey, and Alan and Gretchen, are playing a Pictionary-type game where Larry thinks the object Lyndsey is drawing is a duck (it's actually a witch hat). He guesses various duck-related topics, including "Duckie, from ''PrettyInPink''!" Of course, Duckie was played by Jon Cryer (Alan), who gives Larry a strange look at this point.

** Whether Judith's new baby is Alan's or Herb's was never really resolved, since her baby is not even mentioned anymore.
*** Now that Judith's actress has left the show, it's a moot point.
** Judith actually was supposed to turn out to be a lesbian originally...until someone pointed out that ''Series/{{Friends}}'' had already used the "woman turns out to be a lesbian and throws out her husband" plot in its own pilot episode nearly a decade earlier (Ross' first ex). As a result, the remaining first season episodes instead had her just pretending to be gay so that Alan wouldn't contest the divorce.
