    Re: The Live Show Experience

    So we get into the new studio, and the first impression I have is that it's really not very big. It looked smaller than the one that we were used to seeing in past years, and after having seen it on TV, I can tell you that it looks WAY bigger on TV than it is in real life. Most sets are like this by the way.
    I remember going to Late Night with Conan O'Brien. The studio looks moderately sized on TV, even when they pull back and show him running around the audience, but think about a really small Multiplexed movie auditorium, one of those little divided up "boxes", and that's about the size of the REAL studio. I imagine this is true of almost every TV studio to one degree or another.

    Then Paula comes out on the stage and makes it 98% of the way to the judges table before tripping. Would you expect anything else???
    Nope.

    Was there a visible Coke Cup passoff/fillup after she got there?

    At one time, he was in Randy's chair (the judges aren't always there, but I'll get to that in a sec.) doing an impression of Randy. "Yo yo, dawg, check this out... now check this out," and so on.
    Ryan's a bit ridiculous, but he certainly gets points for mocking Randy.

    At one point, Randy and Simon had to go over and say hi to the Kardashians.
    It angers me on several levels that they had to even bother to play nice with these nobodies.

    When I was a youngster, my parents went to the Lawrence Welk show & daanced along with everyone else. They said what appeared on TV to be a huge dance floor, was in reality no bigger than a standard living room. Everyone was jammed together & had no room to cut a good rug...

    Very informative hypnoboy. Thanks for sharing with us. It's nice to get these actual experiences from those of you fortunate enough to attend the shows.

    Been there too, although not for an actual show. What's shocking in that studio is more how few seats there are than the actual stage size.

    I live in S. California and my sister and I could actually get tickets for the show. After reading this on the boards, I don't think it would be worth my time to go down to see the show. Heck, you could wait 4 hours, pay for parking ($10 at the least), take vacation time from work and still not get in. This happened when Ryan S. had his own show a few years back.

    If you saw the show last night, you saw Angry Hat! That's was the lady that did the thing with Brad Pitt and the one that Ryan was giving a hard time yesterday.
