Attend a TV Taping/Event for FREE as an AUDIENCE MEMBER or SEATFILLER
Commonly asked Questions: AUDIENCE MEMBERS: By attending a show as an audience member, you are given your own seat for the taping. It is your seat, and you will enjoy the show from that seat for the entire taping. (Some tapings are general admission standing room only and seats are not available.)
SEATFILLERS: Seatfillers are used primarily at televised shows, such as concerts and award shows. As a seat-filler, you will be required to sit in the empty seats of celebrity presenters, performers and guests in the FRONT SECTION of the theater. As you may know, some performers and guests do not return to their seats during the show, therefore, you as seat-fillers ensure that the front section (the best seats) do not look empty to the home audience.
Commonly asked questions about seatfilling:
Do seatfillers have to pay anything to be seatfillers? No, seatfillers don't pay or get paid - it is strictly volunteer, but you will be sitting in the best seats.
Any chance I'll be sitting in the nosebleed section? Unlikely. The whole point of having you there is to fill the front section. If nothing is available in the front, you may be offered alternative seating. Seatfilling is based on availability.
Will I get to sit next to my friends? There is no guarantee. It depends how many seats open up in the same area.
How often will I have to move around? Movement only happens during commercial breaks. About 80% of seatfillers, once seated, never have to move. The rest usually move once or twice, usually to a better seat.
Will I be on television? More than likely. The whole purpose of seatfillers is so that the home audience never sees empty seats.
Will I see anyone famous? Yes, you will be sitting among them.
Do I have to get up if someone comes back to their seat? Yes!!
Where do I go if someone returns to their seat? You move to another empty seat.
CASTING: Similar to an acting casting call, individuals are chosen based on certain criteria - as determined by the production.
