Dress and Act Appropriately
Dress appropriately, since you might be on TV during audience shots.
NYCOTC Insider Tip:
- As a former TV News reporter (for WABC-TV Eyewitness News, here in NYC) I know that that TV studios are normally kept cold, between 55 and 65 degrees, to compensate for the hot lights.
- So this word of advice – bring a sweater or light jacket with you.
All shows reserve the right to deny you admission, even with a ticket, if you are dressed inappropriately for TV or appear to be “under the influence”.
If you’re not able reserve tickets in advance, standby tickets are available same-day for each show.
Standby tickets do not guarantee admission, but when there are extra tickets or cancellations, those seats are distributed on the day of the show.
Standby cards are available in the Shop at NBC Studios, via the Sixth Avenue entrance, between 49th & 50th Streets.
Standby cards are available from 10am to 2pm the morning of a show. The line typically forms before 9 a.m.
- Note that if you leave the line for any reason you will not be permitted to return to your original place in line, even if your travel companion remains in place.
- One standby ticket is granted per person. For additional tickets, you must rejoin the end of the line.
All guests requesting a standby card must be fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination.
Please note “fully vaccinated” means at least 14 days after receiving the second dose of a two-dose vaccine, or of a single-dose vaccine.
Proof of vaccination must be your physical vaccination card, which will be required upon arrival. No exceptions will be made.
