Live Taping


Recommended Posts

Did anyone get to the taping of the season finale or know of some set report online? I'm hoping someone can tell me the title of the final episode. I have the titles of the others leading up to the finale (Spaghetti Catalyst, Plimpton Stimulation, Elevator Implementation).


^^CBS just renamed "The Elevator Implementation" so its now called "The Staircase Implementation." And yes I know someone who went to the finale taping...the episode is titled “The Lunar Excitation.â€Â

Oh Damn!! I wanna know a lot of spoilers already! its true, even when I know I should be patient and sometimes I am, there are cases when I'm really impatient to know things, thanks for the heads up about the tittle, Its a bad thing being impatient and not being a smoker hehe.

I just got tickets to the Oct. 27 taping. A question for anyone: The ticket says that parking is available at the Gate 3 lot two hours before the taping. BUT... per the recommendations of others on this forum, I'm planning to be there by at least 2 p.m., if not earlier. Can I still park in that parking structure, or do I have to find other parking?

I went to a taping of Ellen last year, but since I took the WB tour beforehand, I just walked from that parking lot, which is $7 for the whole day, to Gate 3 (about a 10-minute walk).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am new to these boards, so please excuse me. I had already posted in the "Chit Chat" forum and then found the "search" function.

We have bagged tickets to the November 9th taping. I know that we are supposed to arrive early to get in, but I am confused about the parking situation. If they will only let you in the lot two hours in advance of the 6:30 taping, it looks as though we shall be too late.

Any advice?

Hey Krys :) I'm so excited for you hun! You're gonna have a blast!

that's great, the thing that I wonder mostly is if you get to see the taping of the entire episode or just a few scenes? or for how long will you be there? what you do in the beginning and at the end? and if spoilers and intel aside from the taping it would be great thing to know, even if it is by a private message jejejeje.Congratulations for being able to go to the taping.

I've been to 3 tapings of the show (episodes 2.22, 3.2, and 3.10) and actually going to my 4th taping next week on Tuesday :) So I've gone enough to be able to answer those questions in other words!

When you see a taping you see the entire episode taped and they film it in order how you see it on the episode from start to finish that way us in the audience do not get confused as to the storyline. The tapings start at 6:30pm and usually last about 3 hours (yes it takes 3 hours to tape a show with less than 30 min run time haha) so we get out a little before 10pm.

At tapings since tickets do not guarantee you will actually get in you do need to show up a couple hours early or you will not get in. Once you finally are done with the check in process they take you back in groups and you basically follow the leader around the Warner Brothers studio backlot until you get to stage 25 which is the studio the show tapes on :) After going through more security checks you are told where to sit (being first in line doesnt mean you get the best seats...its random how they seat you). About 30 minutes before the taping starts we watch on the tv screens above us the episode that will air before the one we watched taped (usually its the episode that they taped just last week). So in other words, we get to see 2 new episodes (one we watch on tv and the other being the one we see taped of course).

Once we finish watching the episode on the tv's, the MC guy who "entertains" us in the audience the entire time and also directs us as to what to do in situations (like reminding us to laugh even though we've already seen the scene every time before they say "action"), will introduce the cast one by one and they basically just wave to us and then take their place either on stage or backstage if they will not be in the scene. From then on we watch the episode taped in order. We see everything except sometimes at a taping there might be 1 scene they pre-taped the day before for various reasons (its always a very short scene though...no longer than 1 min long) and we watch it on the tv screens so they can record our laughter. Throughout the taping music is constantly being played every time they yell "cut" (they actually have a DJ in the back who is playing the music) and the cast can sometimes be seen dancing to it while on stage :) About an hour or two into the taping the audience is given pizza and water free of charge so we don't go hungry or thirsty. Anyways during tapings very often we watch a scene anywhere from just 1 take to as many as 6 times....it various a lot but the average I'd say is 3 takes a scene. Several times the writers will have the actors try different lines just to see which line goes over the best with us and/or works simply better for the scene. When the taping is over the cast has a final curtain call one by one and all stand together on stage waving goodbye to us. The end of taping, if you go down to the rail you can try to get autographs from the cast. Every single taping is different as to how that goes though....sometimes you might not be able to get any and sometimes you can luck out and get them all to sign something (luckily that happened to me once)! FYI Kunal signs the most by far and spends a long time signing for as many people as he can. So yeah overall its a really fun thing to do and even better is thats its free haha. It's definitely a lot harder now though to get tickets....quite difficult anymore to be honest, but still possible if you are persistent enough :)

Hey Shannon! Would you mind sharing with me about the process of obtaining tickets from the website www.tvtickets.com? I would like to know exactly how it is done so as to maximize my chances of getting a ticket. For example, how early do you go, which pages do you refresh, what time the tickets are normally released, and if there is a 'technique' involved in trying to secure tickets.

These are for Season 5's tickets which should be released in a few days' time.

Much appreciated!
