There are no extra *commas* there.  Perhaps you mean extra 
*parentheses*?   When Python parses that line, the extra parentheses are 
used to control the evaluation (unnecessarily in this case, as it turns 
out), and won't be in the final result.

 >>> seriesxlist1 = ((0.0), (0.01), (0.02), (0.03), (0.04), (0.05), 
(0.06), (0.07), (0.08), (0.09), (0.1), (0.11))
 >>> seriesxlist1
(0.0, 0.01, 0.02, 0.03, 0.04, 0.05, 0.06, 0.07, 0.08, 0.09, 0.1, 0.11)

A bit of notation, because I''m not sure we are communicating well here: 
   A tuple is a Python data structure.  It has no commas or 
parentheses.   The *printing* of a Python tuple uses both for it's 
appearance on the output, but the tuple itself has no such thing.
