Welcome to the final edition of Megan’s TV show taping ticket tips! Today’s topic: The ever-delicious cooking shows.
Rachael Ray Show Tickets
• In Advance: Fill out the on-line form at http://web1-dev.xen1.rachaelrayshow.com/show-info/audience-tickets/ Shows tape Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, with two tapings per day (one at 11:30am, the other at 4pm.) The studio is located at 222 E. 44th St., between 2nd & 3rd Ave. – if you’re going to the noon taping, you must arrive by 10:15am, arrival time for the 4pm taping is 2:15pm. All audience members must be at least 16 years old. You can request up to 4 tickets at a time – only one request per household (submitting any more cancels both requests.)
• Last Minute: The arrival time to receive a standby voucher is 10:15 a.m. (for the 11:30 a.m. taping) and 2:15 p.m. (for the 4:00 p.m. taping). A standby voucher does not guarantee a ticket to the show. Standby is first come/first served – earlier arrival will give you a better chance at getting in.
Martha Stewart Show Tickets
• In Advance: The ticket-request form can be found at MarthaStewart.com/get-tickets. If the day you want is not available, you will receive a message advising you to check back later. Typically, shows are booked a month in advance. If a date is not posted, it means the audience is full for this show date. You can request up to four tickets – duplicate requests will be deleted.
• Last Minute: Standby tickets may not always be available. If they are, they will be available about two hours prior to show time at Chelsea Television Studios, 221 West 26th Street (between Seventh and Eighth avenues.) The show typically tapes at 10 am and 2 pm, standby tickets are given out when available at 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
