Every Show is Different
Sitting as a member of a studio audience during a TV taping is something that you can’t do just anywhere. New York City is home to several studios, so this is a very popular Activity in NY. If you’re planning a stay at our NYC Hotel then consider trying to get tickets to one of your favorite shows.
You’ll need to plan ahead well in advance to get tickets for some shows. For others it is as easy as sending an email, making a phone call, or just showing up at the studio. Below are some of the shows that tape in New York City.

As you plan your visit, you will want to look into the procedure for getting tickets to the show or shows that you are interested in. This information can be found on the show’s or network’s website. Don’t wait until the last minute, because that will make it harder to get the tickets that you want.
Saturday Night Live uses a lottery system, and they only take requests for inclusion in the lottery on certain dates. Those who get tickets are not able to choose the dates, and instead have to take the tickets for the show awarded or forfeit them. That is actually good news for people who want to score last minute tickets to this show. Because many people will not be able to come to New York City on a specific date, many of the tickets awarded via lottery go unclaimed. Those tickets are then given out on a first come, first served basis on the morning of the show. Tickets are also available for the full dress rehearsal which takes place earlier in the day.
Other shows, such as Live with Kelly & Michael, have a less complicated method of handing out tickets, but you’ll still need to follow the procedures listed on their website.
