    I checked out www.myagttickets.com just for the hell of it to see if the shows are sold out. They list the start times of all the shows as 5:30 to 6:30PM and refer to them as "live tapings". It doesn't seem like they'd be asking people to show up that early if the shows were actually starting at 9:00 PM (like Howard says), so what's going on here? Are the shows being taped earlier in the evening and shown at 9:00 PM after being edited? Is all Howard's whining about staying up late just more fake bullshit?

    And, by "live", they mean "pre-taped".

    I at least thought the East Coast would be live.

    I don't know what it means but it kind of seems reasonable to have people show up that early. Especially if it's being held in a big arena, it would take some time to get everyone in and sat down. Then they probably go over the audience rules a few times.

    I went to a taping of Emeril Live about 10 years ago and I remember having to get there pretty early and there was a lot of downtime. But that really was a taping, so who knows. :dontknow:

    Enough. I love busting Howard, but come on. I am sure they are gonna be live shows. (Live nowadays means a few minutes of delay)

    I have never heard of any television show airing live to ask people to show up 2 1/2 hours before the show goes live. I would assume it is counter productive to do so. You want the crowd to be as up as possible and after 2 1/2 hours of sitting around, the crowd could be flat and/or antsy.

    My guess is that they have the crowd there early and they pre-tape certain things that may air during the show, but the show airs live. I've never watched a second of it, so I don't know what they do.

    Also, with a live show, they want to get a look at the audience, get a guage on them, determine if there's anyone who might be trouble. Maybe wearing something inappropriate. Then they have to adjust lighting and sound levels for the audience. I assume they take shots of the audience during the show.

    Again, there's never gonna be a real "live" tv show when you have to change sets, etc. But they will only be a few mins. behind. It's not a sports show. Alhough they may be taped a few mins behind.

    I wonder about this myself. AI does live tapings also but they are honest about it. Once it goes to where the public votes the shows are live on East Coast. I guess we will find out soon enough when the people attend the show tomorrow and tweet when it starts and ends. One of the reasons it might be taped is Howard demands it. He doesn't want to work till 10pm.
