* ActorAllusion: In this case, creator allusion. A few shows have used the theme song for ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' as an in-joke. Lorre wrote the tune.

Added DiffLines:

* StudioAudience: Lorre is one of the few remaining sitcom producers to still shoot his shows in front of a live audience. However, he makes it a point not to use a "sweetened" LaughTrack, insisting on always using the audience's honest reactions (although he does avoid using excessive cheering or hooting).


Chuck Lorre (born Charles Michael Levine, October 18, 1952 in Plainview, New York) is an American television writer and executive producer/director with an extensive resume. Basically, if the show has a laugh track, it's possible Lorre has something to do with it.

Added DiffLines:

Lorre is also well-known for his [[VanityPlate production logo]], used near-continuously since ''Dharma and Greg'', which usually shows a lengthy essay written in a small font and is on screen for usually under two seconds, requiring the viewer to pause it[[note]]and, given it was used prior to the advent of [=DVRs=], tape it as well. The logo used to consist of white text on a black background, but this was eventually changed to black-on-white due to it being easier to read, especially on videotape[[/note]] in order to read it. In 2012, Lorre published the book ''What Doesn't Kill Us Makes Us Bitter'', which compiles several of his essays. All of his cards can be found at his [[http://chucklorre.com/ website]].
