New York has been called the talk show capital of the world. Tabloid TV and institutionalized gossip come to life in the studios of the city. As always, tickets for these shows are free, but most shows limit attendees to 16 or 18 years and older. If you are around that age, bring ID. You can sign up for tickets and get up-to-date information on the shows' websites (links provided).
Generally, people stand in line hours and hours before the designated time for tickets. Get there early and wear comfortable shoes if you are serious about getting in.
