Tv shows (especially comedy shows) have a background audience laughter and I remember there's a word whose synonym is the background laughter on tv shows. But, I'm not able to identify the word. Any of you know the word? It is not laugh track or any other word given here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laugh_track. I distinctly remember that the word doesn't have 'laugh' in it.

Are you possibly thinking of 'sweetening'?
It's canned laughter - often used today in broadcasting to simulate the reaction of a nonexistent live audience. [c. 1900]
