WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Dress your best in solid bright colors. Our dress code is NICE CASUAL (BRIGHT COLORS) as if you are going to a nice dinner! Audience members may appear on camera and may be asked to participate in the show. The three categories below explain what we want.
WHERE DOES THE SHOW TAPE?
All audience members must check-in with a 1iota representative on the sidewalk outside the Fairfax Gate at CBS Television Studio Center at 200 N. Fairfax Ave (NOT CBS RADFORD)
HOW LONG IS A TAPING?
Tapings typically last about 60 minutes. On occasion, there will be additional segments taped in the studio prior to or after the scheduled show. (This does not mean you will be leaving roughly 60 minutes after the check-in time) Please leave your departure time flexible.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?
Plan to arrive and BE IN LINE at least 30 minutes before the CHECK-IN time on your ticket. It takes approximately 30 minutes to check 140 people in and have them go through the studio's security check point, then another 15 minutes to explain what we need you to do as an audience member to make the best show possible, another 15 to load all 140 people into the studio, and finally you are treated to the best 30 minute warm-up of all time before the actual taping begins. We operate on a first-come, first-served basis, as ticket distribution may be in excess of studio capacity.
CAN MY FRIEND, FAMILY MEMBER, HOTEL GUEST OR BUSINESS ASSOCIATE USE MY FREE 1IOTA TICKET WITH MY NAME ON IT IF I'M NOT THERE?
No, no, no and no. Tickets NOT TRANSFERABLE under any circumstances.
CAN I PURCHASE A FREE 1IOTA TICKET FROM A THIRD PARTY?
Absolutely NOT. Tickets NOT TRANSFERABLE under any circumstances.
CAN I PHOTOSHOP OR PHOTOCOPY MY FRIENDS TICKET OR ANY OTHER TICKET TO TRICK 1IOTA SO THAT I CAN GET INTO A SHOW I DON'T HAVE AN ACTUAL TICKET FOR?
Nope. We have a list of names that are associated with a specific bar code for everyone with an actual reserved ticket. Name of the ticket MUST match the name on the government ID.
WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE TO ATTEND THE SHOW?
All audience members must be at least 18 years of age. This is very strictly enforced. Almost 18 is not 18. Being with a parent does not make someone under 18 older than 18.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO THE SHOW?
Please bring a valid government-issued photo ID with a birth date and an address. This information must match the information on your ticket.
CAN I BRING A CAMERA OR MOBILE PHONE?
NO. If you are traveling and can not leave your small camera and/or phone in your vehicle, security will hold it/them during the show and give you a claim ticket to pick it/them up after.
IS THERE A SECURITY SCREENING?
All audience members are required to be screened prior to entering the studio. Please refrain from bringing extra personal belongings.
IS THERE A COAT CHECK?
No, all of your belongings must fit underneath your seat. CBS security is very strict about not allowing large cameras, large bags, or backpacks on the lot. If you are traveling and can not leave these in your vehicle, there is a box store across the street from our check-in location that will hold your bag till 7pm for $5. We are very, very rarely finished after 7pm (if ever) and have NEVER heard of any issues regarding anyone's bag/s.
ARE LATE LATE SHOW (LLS) TICKETS FREE?
Yes, all LLS tickets are free and non-transferable. DO NOT PURCHASE A 1IOTA LATE LATE SHOW TICKET FROM ANYONE.
CAN I REQUEST MORE THAN TWO TICKETS?
If you are a member of a group larger than 6 that would like to attend a taping (knitting club, cooking club, PTA, etc.), please click the "Bring A Group" tab and fill out the form. If you want 3 or 4 tickets you must have another member of your party sign up for free on the 1iota website and request 2 more tickets. If you need 5 or 6 tickets rinse and repeat.
WHEN WILL I FIND OUT IF MY TICKET REQUEST HAS BEEN APPROVED?
If tickets are available for the show you requested, you will be contacted approximately two weeks prior to the show by email. Not all ticket requests can be honored, and we will contact you only if your ticket request has been approved. Please note that from time-to-time, last minute tickets may become available and we may contact you closer to the show date you requested.
HOW CAN I GET STANDBY TICKETS?
Standby tickets will be available every day we have a taping outside on Fairfax at our check-in location at 2:30pm.
