TV Show tapings

I checked, I hope I haven't brought this topic up before, but oh well. Have you ever been in a live studio audience for a TV show? I have attended tapings of Ellen (the talk show), Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Will & Grace. Ellen was awesome, the dancing isn't just at the beginning of the show, they get you sweating before the taping even starts, and during all the commercials! If you get a chance to see the show, do it. Jimmy Kimmel was unexceptional, I only went to see Jonathan Rhys Meyers in person, totally worth it. I was in the second row, major bonus! As for Will & Grace, I was at the taping during the final season, during a major plot development (when Will and Taye Diggs' character get together in California). They gave us candy between takes, as tapings take several hours. TV tapings are also very educational. They're sort of an all-day affair.
