Yes - you can be in a live studio audience for many TV and game shows!!! Once I sat in on a live taping of "That 70's Show". It was a great experience! I sat next to a man that was an extra in a pre-recorded portion of the show (no one famous but he was fun). I won a copy of the script from that episode and at the end of the show I was able to get it autographed by the cast!! Everyone that stuck around was able to get autographs so bring paper or something just in case.
A close friend of mine was also on "The Price is Right" and she won a ton of cool stuff!
Here are some sites that you can go through for tickets: http://tvtickets.com/ & http://www.studioaudiences.com/. If you have a specific show you would like to see you might want to go to their direct site to see if it is an option.
• Just because you have a ticket doesn't mean you are guaranteed a seat. For the show I went to they gave a lot of tickets out to make sure enough showed up. When we got there we waited in line to get inside (first come, first serve). Once the seats were full they stopped letting people in...
• They most likely will not let you take a camera or video device in.
• Tickets are usually free but “shop” for them early so you have a better chance of getting in.
Being part of a live studio audience was a great experience so I highly recommend it!!
