We got guaranteed seats from Universal Studios to see the taping of the Jay Leno show and it was well worth the wait. You get to studio 11 and are "hearded" into a waiting area where it is explained what is going to happen. Then the group is busted up into smaller groups to go thru the security area. They don't want cameras, cellphones, pocket knives etc. inside. If you are just trying to get in as a standby, you are given a number in the order that you enter the gate (so get there early...1 pm) and that is how you will be seated until they are full. If you have a guaranteed seat, you also get a number, but you go in 1st, or near the front of the pack. It is very cold in this studio, so no matter how hot it is outside, take a sweater or jacket inside, especially if you get cold easily. Parking is an issue in this area. There is no studio parking for the public. If you don't mind walking a couple of blocks, there is street parking, but watch the signs for restrictions. Also, there are two pay parking areas across the street from studio 11. One charges $12, to park before noon. The other is only $5. but you have to wait till noon. Taping started at 3pm and we were back on the street by 4:30pm. It was a great show and the band is fantastic!
