If you aren’t able to get reserved tickets to the show in advance, you can get a stand-by ticket same-day for a chance to see that night’s taping. Please note that a standby ticket does not guarantee admission.
To get your stand-by ticket, arrive in line no later than 9:00am on the morning of the taping outside the 49th Street entrance of the NBC Experience Store. Please be aware that while stand-by tickets are handed out at 9:00am, the line typically forms before 9:00am. There is no saving spots in line, so once an individual is in line, they cannot leave and return to their original spot in line. Please note that only one ticket will be issued per person, and you must present a valid photo ID (date of birth must be visible) to receive a stand-by ticket. You must be at least 16 years old to attend a taping.
After 9:00am, any remaining stand-by tickets will be available on the first floor of the NBC Experience Store at the managers’ station.
We typically tape daily (Monday through Thursday), but it's important to call our ticket hotline (212-664-3056) to confirm that a new show will taping on the day you'd like to attend.
