Information For Attending A Taping


Recommended Posts

Hi there :)

 

I am from Australia and am totally excited as I will be attending the 13th Jan taping!

 

I have a standby ticket - if anyone has a spare priority/guarenteed ticket I would be extreemly grateful to take it of off your hands (I am traveling on my own so only need 1)

 

Otherwise, see you in the line :)

I was told today that my Christmas present is to be allowed to come to a taping. My kids and wife will be chipping in to help defray the cost. I still have to come up with the rest, so it may not be

Outside the studio!

Congrats, and welcome! I don't believe anyone has any spare guaranteed for that taping, but you should be good as long as you show up early in the line!

LA people ( and knowledgable others) - 

 

I need some tips as to what to do around town.

We're there on Valentine's and I am searching for stuff to do ( not too fancy tho ).

 

I installed Grub Hub and Uber thanks to some of you already and am planning to be eating food while waiting ^^- good thinking guys ^^

We were there for the December 9th taping.  Monday afternoon we did the VIP tour of the Warner Bros. studio.  $51 but well worth the money (lasted about 3 hours).  We also got tickets on line (free) to see the taping of Jeopardy (in Sony Studio located in Culver City about an hour from Warner Bros depending on traffic) on Wednesday.  They are a lot easier to get than TBBT.  In between tapings (they do 5 shows in a day twice a week), Alex Trebek takes questions from the audience on whatever you want to talk about.  It was definitely worth the drive.  We also visited the Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood Walk of Fame (saw Kaley Cuoco's newly place star) and visited Grauman's Chinese Theater and viewed all the celebrity cement footprints/handprints.  We could have spent a week but just did not have the time.  Lots to do.  You will enjoy it.

I will always fervently recommend the Santa Monica Pier. It's one of the most beautiful beaches in the area (I also like Long Beach but it's quite far). Santa Monica pier has an amusement park with fun rides and games and carnival food, and lots of little vendors along the way. It's also right near Third Street Promenade with a lot if fun shops.

The Grove is also a fun little outdoor shopping area in West Hollywood. Cheesecake Factory, movie theatre, other restaurants and shops, etc. sometimes performances.

If you want a good view if the Hollywood sign, the Hollywood and Highland center is good (kind of far, but clear) as well as Griffith Observatory (great for photo ops and also a pretty good view of the rest of the city).

There's also the walk of fame on Hollywood Boulevard and a few connecting streets. It's a fun area to walk around, but I would definitely suggest parking at Universal / Studio City Station and taking the red line down. You don't really want to deal with driving in Hollywood. :laugh:

There's also a ton of restaurants and fast food places that Los Angeles and California are pretty well-known for. There's In N Out burger, Umami burger, Crave Café, Aroma Café, Coffee Bean, Peet's, The Griddle, etc.

In addition to the Warner Bros. tour as some have mentioned, similarly you can also take a tour of Paramount Studios. It's about the same cost and equally fun.

You can also check out 1iota.com and on-camera-audiences.com for other TV shows that are taping in Los Angeles. A lot of talkshows with special celebrity guests are on there, as well as some fun shows like The Voice that you can be in the audience for, either live or pretaped.

You can also look at On Location Vacations for scripted TV shows and movies that are filming on location around town. Some of those you can just show up at and watch them film and sometimes meet the cast.

Some other fun attractions include LACMA, the La Brea tar pits, the Getty Center Museum, the Autry Museum, the LA Zoo, Universal Studios, Disneyland, and if you're really looking for a drive, Six Flags Magic Mountain.

I have a question, how hard is it to get tickets? I'll be probably in the US from June till the end of August, so I'd like to try to go to one of the first tapings of season 9... Still not sure though, since I'd probably have to fly from NYC to LA on my own and be there the few days on my own as well, it scares me a bit to be honest  :unsure:

First taping of the season is usually pretty easy to get since people are not in the rhythm of looking up tickets yet. At least, that's how it was at the beginning of this season. Guaranteed tickets for 8/5 taping were up for a good ten minutes or so. (It wound up being canceled but still, that was a one-off due to contracts.) But typically, they are pretty difficult to get if you're going for guaranteed. If you're okay with standby, as long as you're diligent with the days and times, you'll get a ticket. :)

I'm going to the next taping, and I was wondering how early should I be there by since I got standby tickets.

 

It's up to you! Generally the rule of thumb is "by 11am" with standby is a pretty good shot. But some people like to come even earlier, especially if it's a special taping, like Christmas or a special guest, because there are fewer seats for standby people. 

 

I a few pages ago with a few different tapings I went to and how many people were in line and by what time and then how many people got in, so you can kind of get an idea of the fluctuation patterns. It's always different, so you just have to make the call. :)
