Hello all you experienced ticket/ taping experts.  I live in So. Calif (the OC) and for the very first time, I am going to try to secure tickets this Monday morning (Aug 31).  I've read thru the blog - thanks for all the info!!!  I plan to start online about 7:45 am  on Monday morning.  I need 2 tickets (hopefully guaranteed, cause I'd never get my husband to agree to wait in line all day like you die-hards!!!!)

Any particular tips for getting the tickets?  Do I keep refreshing until the site shows available tickets?  

Thanks so much for all your help!  You guys are awesome!!!!!!

Hey everyone,

Can you tell me where parking is close to warner brothers lot. My mom and I are going to the taping on 9/15 and have standby tickets so we re planning on arriving at around 11 am but are looking for relatively cheap all day parking.

 

Thank you

There is free parking at the studio. :) They will let you in no problem is arriving at 11am.

The best thing to do is just refresh until you see the tickets come up. There are often members on this site in the chat room who are willing to hep try and get tickets for those trying to get multiple guaranteed. I myself have a flight tomorrow so I may or may not be able to get on from my phone to try and get tickets, but hopefully other members will be available to help out. Good luck!

I could help somebody today get tickets if need be.  Just PM with name info and such since we cannot do name changes. 

Hi Kerrycec03! I have been refreshing for the past 72 minutes :-( Are you still able to help with tickets?

It looks like AU has implemented emailing ticket confirmation. Halleluj! Anyone have success this morning getting tickets?

So far, other than the fact that their site really still sucks for lag on ticket release, the changes are all helping.  I did a little experiment this morning to see how easy the site would be accessible and approximately how long tickets would be up (both guaranteed and standby) to see if the new name changes rules might affect things.

Site lag was bad but it did seem quicker and in my case, only showed an error message once, and that was just before tickets first went up.

Guaranteeds were up on the site for nearly 10mins before running out.

Standbys were up on the site for nearly 15mins before running out.

So it looks like, if you're not particularly picky about guaranteed or standby that tickets are a bit easier to get now.  The fact that they're now sending email confirmation is excellent too (no more wondering if it went through or not!)

I had no luck with guarantees as I was stuck in "loading" mode with two different screens for a while BUT would have had no issues getting standby tickets. 

 

I also know my company has been loading more programs on our server so that may have caused the slowness on my work end. 

 

The email confirmation is a long time coming and much needed improvement!!

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 guaranteed to the 9/21 taping.  We are excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats! And wow going to a taping on the day of the season 9 premiere!   :icon_razz:

Wow they run out that fast? :icon_surprised:

If that's more time than before how long did it take for the tickets to run out pre-rule change?

Before the rule change it was 2-5mins for guaranteed and up to 10mins for Standby.  So its definitely an improvement.

Wow! That's insane but nothing you wouldn't expect from the most popular show in America. I've looked around the TV Tickets website and clicked on all the available shows. TBBT is the only show where I have never seen any dates available LOL :icon_razz:

But could it also be possible that another reason it now takes more time for the tickets to run out is because the show's popularity is dwindling by a little? :question: The ratings have gone down a bit...Gosh I hope that's not the case...:no:

I just caught up on this thread. I usually don't come in here unless I'm trying to help someone get tickets. The new no transfer rule stinks! I'll try to come in chat to help get others tickets from now on.  I don't plan on going again until #200 or later in the season.
