Hollywood is only 40 minutes from Thousand Oaks (depending on traffic). How many of you have been to a TV show taping? It’s free and can be a lot of fun! Out of town guests? They'll love the experience of sitting in a live audience! Talk shows, game shows, sitcoms, you name it! Here are some websites to visit to track down free seats in the Los Angeles area, along with currently available shows as of January 2019:
On-Camera Audiences www.ocatv.com - Currently available shows include American’s Got Talent, Beat Shazam, Celebrity Big Brother, Dr. Phil, Rent Live, The Price is Right and more.
Audiences Unlimited www.tvtickets.com - Currently available shows include Dr. Phil, Just Roll With It, Last Man Standing, The Big Bang Theory, Mom and many others.

Or you can go directly to a show's website to request tickets...though usually there is a long wait. Here are a few:
The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon: www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/tickets
The Ellen Show: send.ellentv.com/tickets
Note: Each show has different age minimums, locations, timing and rules, so make sure to read the fine print. For example, if you want to be on The Price is Right, you must be 18 years of age or older and arrive 4 hours in advance of the 2 hour taping. That could be a long day! Wheel of Fortune, filmed at the Sony Studios in Culver City, however, allows audience participants as young as eight.
