One More Thing To Blame On The Simpsons?

From the BBC:
Rom-coms 'spoil your love life'

Films like Four Weddings and a Funeral could promote unrealistic expectations
Watching romantic comedies can spoil your love life, a study by a university in Edinburgh has claimed.

Rom-coms have been blamed by relationship experts at Heriot Watt University for promoting unrealistic expectations when it comes to love.
If romantic comedies promote unrealistic expections when it comes to love, do situation comedies promote unrealistic expectations when it comes to family life?

If fans of Runaway Bride and Notting Hill "often fail to communicate with their partner", will fans of situation comedies find themselves disappointed that members of their family fail to amuse them?

Or will they just ignore their families and catch repeats of the Simpsons?
