It is no secret that I love going to tv show tapings. While most tapings require you to wait for a long time they are really fun for fans of a tv show, talk show or game show tapings provide a unique experience. This is a wonderful opportunity to see some of your favorite stars in person and there is always the possibility that you get to meet some of them. Most shows tape in Los Angeles, CA though some shows tape in New York, Chicago, and Las Vegas. I decided to list all of the tv shows I know of that offer tickets to their tapings. If there is a tv show you are interested in just click on the name to be taken to the ticketing website.
If you’re interested in learning how you can potentially get paid to sit the studio audience for a show click here. *Please note though that those will free tickets will be admitted to shows first. So if you really want to attend the show reconsider trying to get paid to go.
All of the tv shows listed below give out free tickets. In most cases though getting a ticket does not guarantee that you will make it into the taping. Producers like a full house so they give out more tickets than the number of seats they have in order to try and make sure every seat is filled. You can increase your chances of getting into a taping by arriving early. Some shows like The Big Bang Theory, Fuller House, and Dancing With the Stars run out of tickets almost immediately. How can you try and get a ticket before they run out? Visit the ticketing sites to see upcoming filming dates and submit for tickets as soon as they become available.
I love sharing my experiences to help others have the best time possible when they attend a taping. So far I have been to tapings of Dancing With The Stars, the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Fuller House and Girl Meets World. If you plan on going to any of those shows I encourage you to check out what I’ve written about them. The talk shows and game shows tape most of the year while many of the tv shows only tape for a few months at a time. I will do my best to keep this list as up to date as possible.
