Think you’d like to see The Talk starring Sara Gilbert and Julie Chen? Then step right up and see if you can’t score a pair of free tickets to the daytime talk show. How? Just follow these simple instructions.
Please note, when you take a look at both the “Difficulty” and “Time Required” section , please realize that those categories reflect the ease of requesting tickets and the length of time it takes to request tickets.
Obtaining tickets or a reservation to a taping can take much longer. In the case of some shows, it can take months – even years. After all, most shows have a ton of fans and the tickets are free.
- Request tickets online. It's the only way to get free tickets to The Talk presently. Do that at The Talk's official site. You can find online form here, under the "Online Form" tab.
- Be ready to fill in your preferred show date, personal information, number of tickets requested (up to four), and the names of all who will attend.
- Fill out the form once. If you submit more than one request, you will be disqualified from receiving any tickets.
- After submitting your request, wait patiently for a show rep to give you a call to finalize your booking. Don’t be surprised if you don’t receive a call. Many will submit requests, but not everyone will receive tickets. Remember that you do not have tickets until you get that call.
- Got tickets? Great. Now jot this down: The show tapes Mondays through Thursdays at 11 a.m. at CBS Studio Center, 4024 Radford Ave., Studio City, Calif. Your seats are guaranteed if – and only if – you arrive at or before the schedule arrival time (which you’ll know via written email confirmation).
- Remember that your preferred date is not guaranteed. The show will do its best to accommodate your request, but be ready to receive tickets for a different date. (No whining; they’re free.)
- Groups of 20 or more can contact the show directly via Danny Verdugo’s email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Give him your group name and the best way to contact you by phone.
- No ticket or got there late? You can go standby on the day of the taping. Standby tickets are first-come, first-served.
- Audience members must be 18 years old or accompanied by an adult (no younger than 14 permitted, however). All guests must have photo ID when they arrive to the studio. Photo ID includes a drivers license, state ID, passport, or military ID. Dress nicely. Business casual or trendy/upscale. No hats, no logos of any kinds.
- Don’t bring much. Security will search all bags and purses, so travel light for speedy entrance. Audio and video recording devices of all manner are not permitted. Cell phones with cameras are permitted, but must be turned off before entering the studio and stay off during taping.
