You'll find information about shows in production posted on our Shows A-Z page. Our Pilots & Specials page provides details about pilots, one-time-only shows, and special events. Links on these pages and on our Home page an Show Schedule will take you to the individual show pages for more detailed information. Shows may be added or deleted at any time.
In most cases, unless the show times are at least 4 hours apart, you will not be able to attend two shows as most shows will take at least 2 1/2 to 3 hours to film a half-hour episode. Please do not order tickets for shows filming at the same time that you cannot or will not use.
Yes, tickets are FREE....but we must limit ticket distribution for all shows. It simply means that we have reached the ticket limit for that show. Some shows previously listed as "sold out" may be reopened for additional ticketing if we receive a large number of cancellations, the production company's guest list is low, groups cancel or the studio capacity changes.
After clicking 'Submit' on the order form, if you were able to view a ticket on your browser, your information will be added to our database and we will have your name(s) on the ticket/check-in list for the show. If you did not or could not print your ticket(s), you may check in at the studio under your name(s) - with photo ID(s) for guests ages 18+ - as a printed ticket is not required. The suggested arrival/check in time for most shows is no later than one hour prior to posted show time; however, some ticket holders may line up earlier and arrival times vary for some shows. Studio maps with show specific parking and check-in information are posted here. As the tickets are generated for you to print when orders are submitted and the pdf document will eventually time out, we are unable to access copies to send to you at a later date; however, for those who are unable to print immediately, ticket copies are also emailed to the address that you enter on the order form.
Our ticketing system is set up to generate the ticket copy (pdf document) on your web browser for printing when you submit your order. Your information will be entered in our database and if a ticket was displayed on your web browser, your name(s) will be on the ticket/check in list; however as the ticket copy and studio map document will eventually "time out" we do not have copies to send to you and we suggest that guests print their ticket(s) immediately when displayed. We do not email "confirmations", only a copy of the ticket(s) as displayed for printing on your browser when the order was submitted. This is an automatic process (providing a working email address was entered) and is done because we understand that some guests may not have immediate access to a printer. Although the copies are usually sent out promptly, depending on site traffic and other factors that may be beyond our control, it may take up to an hour or more. Please note that some email service providers often block messages sent with attachments (ticket copies) so if you don't find the email from us in your "in box", please also check your spam or junk folders.
No. Printed tickets are not required. If you did not or could not print your ticket(s), you may go to the studio and check in on show day under your name(s). Photo IDs may be required for all guests ages 18+. The suggested arrival / check-in time for most shows is no later than hour prior to posted show time; however, some ticket holders may line up earlier and arrival times vary for some shows. If you did not print your ticket(s), studio maps with show specific parking and check-in information are available here.
Individual tickets/names are required for some shows or studios as noted on the order form. If you have ordered a ticket for someone that can no longer attend and would like to substitue another name, please contact us by Email with the name change no later than 12N on the day prior to the show. We will modify the ticket / check-in list for you and your alternate guest may check in under his or her name. Matching photo ID (for guests over 18) will be required at check in. Tickets for "The Big Bang Theory" are NOT transferable.
Free tickets are offered online for most shows starting 30 days prior to show date. Our show calendar and order form automatically update around 8:30am (M-F Los Angeles time) to display shows scheduled for the next 30 days; however, if Monday is a national holiday, the website calendar will update on Tuesday morning.
Guests visiting our website may experience occasional delays or difficulty accessing the order form due to heavy traffic and high demand for tickets. If you receive an 'error message' or notice that the website is unavailable, please click reload or refresh. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The shows that we represent are produced at various studios in the greater Los Angeles area and may include studios in Burbank, Hollywood and Culver City. Studio location maps are available here for viewing or printing.
Most studios that provide audience parking in lots or structures do not charge a fee for parking. Specific parking and check in formation for each studio is on the map you received when you printed your tickets. You may also view this information on our Studio Locations page. If you visit a studio with street parking, please be sure to read and observe the signs for posted parking restrictions. If you choose to park at a nearby "pay lot", you will be responsible for any parking fees.
You will find the suggested arrival time on your ticket. For most shows it is 60 min. prior to show time; however, that may vary for some shows depending on production requirements. As the number of seats open for ticket holders varies and we have no control over when other guests will choose to arrive or line up for a specific show or date, we cannot provide you with the "best" arrival time. Admission is offered on a first-come basis as space allows and is not guaranteed.
The studios do not provide lockers or facilities to check or hold personal items for guests attending the shows. Please leave your cellphones, backpacks, large bags, cameras or recording devices at home, in your car or in your hotel room as they are not permitted in the studios.
Sorry, cellphones, personal cameras, electronic devices and large bags or backpacks are not permitted. Most studios do not provide facilities or lockers to check or store personal items; however, Studio Security will usually agree to hold cellphones for guests who arrive via public transportation. Please inquire with our pages or at the security desk when you check in at the studio.
Some shows may provide a complimentary snack and/or beverage (bottled water) for the audiences; however, we suggest that you plan on eating before or after you go to the studio as there may be no refreshments offered and most studios do not have vending machines or catering trucks available.
Some stages are very close to the check-in area, but many studio facilities are fairly large and there may be a long walk from check-in to the soundstage. Please notify the page crew at check in if you require any special assistance and they will do their best to accommodate you. Also, please be advised that in most studios there will be a small flight of stairs leading to the audience seating area.
If you, or someone in your party uses a wheelchair or for another reason may require additional assistance, please notify us by email at: [email protected] as soon as possible after submitting your order. Due to the very limited open space on the stages, most can only arrange an area for up to two wheelchairs - or guests that have difficulty with stairs - on the studio floor along with one attendant. The studios do not provide wheelchairs or other assistance devices. Amenities that may or may not be provided are at the discretion of the show's production company, the studio facility, the studio security department and/or the Fire Marshal.
All scheduled shows are subject to change or cancellation. We distribute tickets based on their production schedules; however for a variety of reasons, shows that were previously scheduled may be cancelled, moved to an alternate date or the show time may change. We post revised information as we receive it on our Schedule Updates page. Our Ticket Dept. may also send an email notice (to the address you enter on the order form) if a show cancels.
Ticket distribution is limited for all shows; however, tickets may be distributed in excess of studio capacity. General admission ticket holders will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis as space allows. Admission to the studio is not guaranteed. Please click here for more important information that is included with all ticket printouts.
If asked, we advise against planning a long or costly journey to L.A. for the sole purpose of attending the filming of a particular TV show as tickets do not guarantee admission to the studio and although specific show date cancellations are not common, all currently scheduled shows are subject to change or cancellation.
Guests who are not admitted will be offered seating at another show the same night if available, and/or an opportunity to arrange priority seating on a future show date. The pages at the show will provide you with information. Priority seating offer may not apply to future dates of the same show and is always subject to availability. (Priority/guest list seating is not offered for "The Big Bang Theory")
At many shows some or all of the cast may participate in a brief meet and greet with the audience either before or after the show; however, any personal interaction with audience guests is at their discretion and is not something that we can promise will happen or arrange for you.
The actual time that you're in the studio will depend on a number of factors including possible re-takes of scenes (the "bloopers" you don't see at home), wardrobe or set changes or technical problems. Most half-hour comedies take at least 3 to 3 1/2 hours to tape or film an episode so please allow enough time for your visit to the studio.
Guests for shows where the audiences do not appear on camera are encourged to dress casually and comfortably. In order to compensate for all of the hot lights and equipment on the sound stages, it may be a bit cool in the studio so you might consider bringing a light jacket or sweater. If the audience is seen on camera (AFV, Whose Line Is It Anyway? etc.), there will be a "dress code" and that will be noted with the map and check in information that you print with your tickets.
Most of our shows accept advance reservations from organized groups and fundraising opportunities may be available! For more information about fundraising and free group tickets (10 or more) please contact our Group Dept.
Sorry, we do not provide VIP or priority tickets for charity fundraising events. The shows that we represent prefer to choose which businesses, companies or charities to support and we are not authorized to do this on their behalf. If your organization is in the L.A. area, and you're interested in raising money, we do provide free studio audience tickets and fundraising opportunities for groups of 10 or more. Please contact our Group Dept. for details.
