TV Tapings

Most New York TV shows need a live studio audience otherwise the show can look pretty flat on TV without the live or taped audience interaction. Depending on the show, some TV productions will live or taped reactions, with some using both. While a live audience costs more, it often pays dividends in the quality of the program and is a great way to reward loyal fans of the show. Having a live show also engages fans in ways that social media never could. In order to put on the show, the TV production company gives out free tickets for a TV show taping and fans are encouraged to attend the show. Some TV shows treat their fans better than others, with food, gifts and some shows even pay the audience member for their time. Other popular TV shows provide little reward for the fans that often have to sit through endless hours of taping. Attendees often have the chance to meet the hosts of the show in person and they may also engage with the audience between takes, although this can vary significantly between shows and is often directly connected to how popular the show is. Some shows allow guests to take photos during a taping, while others police a strong policy of absolutely no photos before, during or after the TV show taping.
