What's the difference between the live show and the recorded one?

In the TV most of the game shows are live and for me it's nice because it can really catch the attention of the people to view their show. But what would really be the difference of having a recorded game show or any show in the TV? Who will have more ratings?

Afcose live show . As seeing a recorded is not so excited as watching a live show as we enjoy every bit of ot . We cheer with the croud , we shout , we dance , we feel the atmosphere. But when we watch the recorded show there is no such excitement in it . We just sit and watch .

Recorded shows are originally not vry organized, while LIVE shows have to be a well organized one, so that the participants or the presenter do not mess it up. A lot of editing is done before broadcasting a recorded show and hence, it ends within the time. While a LIVE program may be sometimes short or lengthy. The presenter must have a good presence of mind and must be time conscious too. I would prefer watching recorded shows, if I do not have much leisure or patience to watch the LIVE ones.

In the UK i think a lot of the gameshows are pre recorded especially ones that air almost everyday usually they pre record several episodes in one go in front of the same studio audience.I suppose the advantage is that it can be edited to remove any mistakes you hardly ever see a fluffed line making me think they have been edited.The other advantage is the audience dosent just get to see the one hour long episode this is particularly good when a contestants game crosses over more than one episode.A good example of this is the British show countdown which is filmed in batches of about 5 which is good as the winner stays on the show till they are defeated and they are then replaced by the new winner.

i dont think it makes much of a difference, of course people do enjoy a slip up on live television but as far as game shows the cast and contestants aren't really concerned about their live presence or not i think theyd act the same way and how would we as the viewer know differently anyway?
