More Services

Studio Tickets are always FREE! Any site charging a fee to become a studio audience member is charging for providing the service of gathering information and not the actual tickets.    Below OLV has gathered a list of studio tickets, free of charge.


Studio audience members must follow guidelines set by the individual TV studios, but some rules seem to be regular studio policy across the board.

Standby Tickets: Only one ticket (or standby voucher) will be issued per person.  Arrival times for standby tickets are subject to change.  This does not guarantee entrance into the studio and TV shows reserve the right to deny entrance to anyone at anytime.  Calling a standby hot line with requests for a future date will not be accepted.

Attire: Dress to impress!  Generally business casual is the preferred audience attire with bold colors.  White  and patterns don’t bode well on TV.  Clothing should not endorse any kind of business or product.  Since anyone can be denied for any reason, follow individual studio instructions closely.

ID: Most shows require a valid photo ID  upon arrival.  Any reservations for standby tickets must match the names on the IDs presented.   Check age requirements for each show as they vary greatly.  Minors, when permitted, must be accompanied by an adult.

Below is an alphabetical list of shows with live studio audiences based on location. Send requests for show information not listed below to Melissa@onlocationvacations.com.
