I know it's a cheap shot, but are you sure they couldn't be replaced with an automated computer program? Just run a find/replace to update the names on the script & let it run. Also, I would argue that the "professional" writers are having a hard time writing a funny sitcom script--I haven't seen or heard of one in years. Last American sitcom I saw that was funny at all was "Three's Company," which was just a remake of the British "Man About the House." OK, you have the Simpsons and Futurama, which were good for a giggle. Most of what I've seen when I had the misfortune to look was jr high potty humor with adult actors. How these shows remain on the air is beyond me. Here's a test: watch an episode of any american sitcom you like. Then watch an episode of "Waiting for God". See which one is funnier.
