Attending a live studio taping of your favorite TV show can be an incredibly fun event. Although actually going to these tapings is free, snagging audience tickets can be a tough process; popular shows sell out almost as soon as tickets are available, so stay on top of these websites.
In addition to using these websites to snag tickets to a TV taping, you can also contact the source of the show directly for audience tickets. Shows like “Ellen,” “The Tonight Show,” “Dr. Phil,” “Jeopardy,” and “Wheel of Fortune” post ticket availability directly on their websites.
One of the best sources for audience tickets in the LA area, Audiences Unlimited has exclusive access to more than 30 shows filmed in and around Los Angeles. Current hits include “Two and a Half Men,” Disney’s “Austin & Ally,” “Baby Daddy,” “See Dad Run,” “Hot in Cleveland,” and “Mike and Molly.”
