I got tickets to the first taping of CONAN!

I just found out today I was selected to attend the very first taping of Conan's new show. This is really exciting for me! I am kind of a big fan.

His new show will begin taping on November 8th on the Warner Bros. Studio Lot (same lot as Ellen). I'm wondering if anyone has any good advice about hotels, restaurants, and the Burbank area in general. I've never attended a live taping before. Anything I should know in advance?

We're in Phoenix and we're not sure if we are going to drive there or catch a flight. We want to get there at least a day before and will have to leave right after the taping ends to get back home since my husband needs to work on Tuesday.

I'd love to hear any experiences you've had!

Awesome!! We got tickets for the second day.

I'm not really that familiar with the burbank area, but it's very close to universal citywalk...lots of cool stuff there.

For the show taping, don't wear white, leave your cell phones in the car (they usually don't allow them in at all), and make sure to get there early. You're let into the studio by order of arrival.

Hope that helps!

Get there plenty early. One of the original Bob's Big Boy restaurants is very nearby. I've heard good things about the Beverly Garland Hotel, also nearby. Parking for Universal Citywalk is $15, last I heard. That's a bit of sticker shock for us, since Downtown Disney parking is free for 3 hours (5 with validation).

I've been to several tapings. None of them have allowed phones or cameras inside the studio and they do check inside your handbag.The persons in charge of the audience and security send people back to their cars to store their items.

Definitely eat ahead of time and bring a sweater. Nothing white or low-cut. It occasionally gets chilly inside the studio.

If you are flying out right after the taping, be sure to give yourself enough leeway, just in case the taping runs a little long.

Have fun

Congrats!! I love conan!!!

I haven't been to a talk show/variety show taping, but in college we used to attend TV tapings as fundraisers (lame huh). They take a LOOOOOONG time, I would budget 3-4 hours to be safe. I think that talk shows would take less time....please report back and let us know how it goes!!

I signed myself up on the teamcoco website for Thanksgiving taping but haven't received a call yet. Maybe I will soon!

We are going on Thursday - so excited!

We are in San Jose, so we are going to drive down really early in the morning on Thursday 11/11...they said we should be there between 12:00 and 2:00.

We are staying at the Residence Inn in Downtown Burbank with our Marriott points. We were considering going to DL afterwards...but decided it was just too much $$. Instead, I think we will do some tourist things in Hollywood the next day or go to Six Flags Magic Mountain on our way home.

Have fun!

conGRATS!! I'd love to see Conan...I am also a big fan, in fact I just watched the one last night where he had some red headed guy on, they were hilarious! I love Andy too...we went to Warner Brothers last summer for a VIP tour and LOVED it!! Our daughter is a huge HP fan, and we got to see a whole floor of memorabilia on the 2nd floor of their museum. Enjoy your show!!!
