Can I bring food or drink to the show?
You are welcome to bring a light snack or coffee to enjoy in line or after check-in, but food, drinks and gum are not permitted in the studio.
Can I get an autograph or picture with Anderson?
We cannot accommodate requests for autographs, photos or meet-and-greets with the host or show guests due to our very full production schedule. We request that you do not ask for pictures or autographs during the taping.
Am I guaranteed admission to the show?
We do not guarantee admission. As with all talk shows, ticket distribution may be in excess of studio capacity ("overbooking"). Arriving on time with confirmed tickets provides the best chance of admission.
Why do you overbook?
Overbooking means that, for any given taping, we will accept a few additional reservations for seats beyond the studio's seating capacity. Talk shows normally overbook to fill seats left empty by audience members who don't show up to the taping. This ensures a full audience to fulfill the needs of the production. On rare occasions, we may encounter a situation where we do not have enough seats to accommodate all attendees. We emphasize that arriving on time and with a confirmed reservation is the best way to avoid being turned away in such a situation.
What happens if I am turned away due to overbooking?
In the unlikely event that you are turned away due to overbooking, we will offer you priority admission to a future taping of “Anderson Live.” This offers you the chance to enter the studio before the general admission line after checking in. You are still required to request tickets, confirm your attendance, and arrive on time.
How can I find out when the show I attended will air?
