Look at “The Honeymooners.” It’s a lovable louse who’s always scheming but has a heart of gold. He’s got a dim-witted comrade-in-arms, and a wife that shoulders the burden of their goofiness and provides the emotional center.

It’s the same formula that’s been used for practically every successful sitcom. At least the family-related ones. Even “The Simpsons.”

“It’s funny.”
