I was on the taping of this talk show on VH1 when I went to LA
during spring break last year, (I forgot the name of the show, but I think now it has been canceled). We were on the Universal Studios where I spotted a booth with "Free Television Tickets" on it. The free tickets were for Craig Kilborn show or this VH1 show. Since the VH1 show promised more interesting stars (David Boreanaz, Vanessa Carlton, and Stone Temple Pilots) we decided to take the VH1 tickets.
The taping took place in a small studio in Sunset Boulevard and once inside we were told to laugh or clap differently according to the cues. They announced that there was a change of plans and that the guests were going to be Bill Maher and Alanis Morissette, little did I know that Alanis already taped her performance beforehand so we were shown only the video, damn, I was looking forward to see here live and gloat to my friends..hehe...but we did get to see Bill Maher live.
The episode aired that night and I was literally on TV
as towards the end of the show, this host (a really goofy guy) was standing in front of me so the camera caught me and my friends. Overall it was a fun experience, but still I felt cheated cause I didn't really get to see Vanessa Carlton, STP, or Alanis.
