Information For Attending A Big Bang Theory Taping

I stayed at the Tangerine Hotel when I went to the season premier taping and I walked everywhere.  But, I personally wouldn't have walked from where you are staying.  I will say that I felt perfectly safe walking back from the taping after dark.  So, the area around the studio seemed safe to me.  

Thank you! 
Yeah i've already decided i'll take a taxi/uber after the taping, it's just easier, but it's good to know it's safe, i've read that there are some ghetto areas in LA, where it's not too safe even in daytime... but i suppose they can't be too close to Warner Bros/Universal/etc, and the center i guess

I still can't believe I'm going to the taping tomorrow! Waiting for my flight to LA right now.  Thanks Michy once again for helping me experience one of the best days of my life for sure!

As it got closer to 830, the site was taking a long time to load between refreshing.  But I got 1 guaranteed and 1 standby.  I just got an email back and they have upgraded my husband, so I now have 2

I'm not sure if you were specifically asking for yesterday's taping, so I don't know if you're still wondering about this, but the 222 bus is a fine option for to and from the studio if you're on Hollywood Blvd. It does run until about midnight, but just not as frequently, like once an hour. You can use the Metro app to get to-the-minute updates on when the next bus will be. As others have said, Uber and Lyft are a good option too, and four miles wouldn't be too bad price-wise. Hope I'm not too late!

I heard all the standby got into the 200th taping. Does it seem like the number of percentage of different ticket types they give out has changed, or do you think this kind of thing is because of their "no transfer" policy for guaranteed ticket holders who find they can't make it?

I wonder if maybe for the 200th they gave out fewer guaranteed, just in case the # of VIPs was higher?

No, i have tickets for 9x18 and 9x19 (not sure if i'll go though, but if not now, then some other time i'll go for sure), so this is great help!! Ty so much! : D

I'll download the app now and check it out, but it sounds great it runs till midnight! On the link given by somebody a few posts above i couldn't see any info about it (although it's supposed to be about all buses ), and when i googled for 222's timetable specifically and on some random websites it said it's running time ~ 6am-7pm or something, so i was very confused. I'm happy to have info from someone who actually took that bus !

It's possible, although there seemed to be the typical number of guaranteed. I would however say that overall, there were fewer people (guaranteed and standby together) in the line than there usually are. And there was an unusually small number of VIP for this show (usually when it's maxed out, the first three rows are taped off for VIP and at this one, only the first two were). By the time all the guaranteed were let it, they hadn't even filled the two main middle sections, let alone the left and right wings. It was awesome that so many standby got in.

You can check out a schedule for the bus here. It doesn't show every stop, just the major ones, so the one at Olive / Warner Brothers Studios (which will be the one you need for the show) would be somewhere between the Cahuenga / Barham stop and the Hollywood Way / Thornton stop. The Metro app will let you look at times for the WB stop and know when it's coming next. As you can see, it runs about every thirty to forty minutes. The route does shorten after 7pm (it doesn't go as far north) but it still runs between WB and Hollywood Blvd. You would most likely catch the Southbound bus at 9:57 pm or 10:57 pm, based on when shows typically let out. Hope that helps!

The press that were there at 200 were not sitting in the audience and were on the floor and backstage in there own area.  Probably, doing this free up seats in the audience for us average joes.

Oh my god, thank you so much , you have no idea how happy you've made me, i feel much more secure now. I don't feel very comfortable taking a taxi in a foreign city tbh, especially if i'm without mobile internet (which i might be, cause i haven't decided yet if i should get an american sim-card) so it just makes me much more comfortable to know buses are available, and knowing there's a fixed schedule. I would've never found such a detailed schedule by myself!

Help!  I got to fill out a request for 1 ticket for 3/15 taping but then it did the waiting circle and the a notice came up that I'd timed out.  I've seen others report this happening, but they were then able to verify they WERE on the list. How do I contact Audiences Unlimited to find out?

If it makes you feel any better I got up at 7:30, continually refreshed the screen for over an hour until the tickets went up around 8:40, immediately sent my request and timed out twice. Not sure if I ever made it into the list, though at my third submission I got an error message that I submitted for more than one ticket....

what a nightmare process!

@I Miss Dan 

@2L344 

Guys, email Audiences Unlimited . It's [email protected]

I've ordered tickets to last 2 tapings (aside from today's ), and what you described happened both times to me, except i've sent my request like 15 times lol. Always the error message.

Both times i've emailed them right after i've got the error message a couple times, and both times it took about an hour but they HAVE answered me saying I was on the list for the priority admission... So just email them !

// I'm nervous myself my 5-6 requests today before the tickets disappeared weren't enough and somehow won't the guaranteed, and i've already postponed my vacation to fly to LA in March instead of Febraury... Ugh : /  I won't feel good until they answer me : (*

Yeah I went ahead and emailed them this morning (nothing to lose!) but it appeared I timed out, I never saw a ticket "appear". My only hope is that it went through since on my second submission it gave me an error message that I had submitted more than one ticket under my name.

this was my first attempt at getting tickets to a taping, what a disappointing process lol. Should've slept in! Thank you for the info brilliantfool and good luck!

My husband and I both had problems this morning too.  We got the timeout screen a couple of times.  We finally got confirmation that we had tickets, but the graphics and important info didn't come up (see attached).  Not sure if we got guaranteed or standby.  He emailed Audiences Unlimited to check.

Thank you! I couldn't get a second one for my wife but she's not a big fan anyway and she's happy I can get in. I read that we can't bring in phones and cameras, bummer! I booked a studio tour beforehand so at least I can maybe get a picture?? Anyway I'm pretty happy about the ticket!

This was my first attempt at getting tickets so I should consider myself very lucky to get the one! What a nerve racking process! I was impressed though that they actually responded to my email a few hours later, and had me on their list-- I totally thought I timed out and was plain out of luck.
