You may have noticed that many shows limit how many tickets you can request. Most shows limit you to requesting either 2 or 4 tickets to a taping. 1iota had been in the audience business for quite some time, and we've noticed something interesting. If you request 2 tickets, you are more likely to use all your reserved tickets than if you could request, say, 5. The larger a group is, the less likely the entire group shows up. This makes filling a studio audience difficult, since we rely on 1iota members to use all the tickets they say they're going to use.
Limiting the number of tickets you can request helps us better predict how many fans will be attending, which allows to overbook less. Turning fans away is the least favorite part of our business, and we are always working to do as little of it as possible.
If a show has a request limit, and you have more people in your party, we recommend having other members of your party submit a ticket request themselves.
