If you'd like a unique experience (for those living outside Los Angeles, New York or Las Vegas) that's both free and interesting, stop by the CBS Television City Television Research Center in the MGM Casino and Hotel. I've done this twice while in Vegas, specifically to kill some time without wasting money, and both visits have provided conversation fodder, if... More

This was a fun activity - and free! at the MGM Grand, they invite you in to preview an upcoming television show that hasn't premiered on television yet. I got to see the pilot for the new "Odd Couple" series starring Matthew Perry as Oscar. They give you a Nielsen rating system and then at the end you take a... More

I had previously participated in research at this facility many years ago. I decided to return so the friend I was traveling with could experience it. We viewed and rated the premier episode of The McCarthy's. It's a great way to spend 60-90 minutes without spending any money, and I would do it again if it fits in with my... More

Must do if you are visiting if you're in Vegas! It's free they're always handing out tickets around the area you really don't have to go far to find them. It takes about 45 minutes and all you have to do is sit there and be one of the first to watch a new tv that hasn't aired yet. A... More

My friend and I watch a pilot with Cedric the Entertainer. We rated it and was invited to a round table discussion afterward. We also did a product review for a home thermostat. We made about $90 cash each!!!! Not bad for an hour and a half.

This was very diverting and as someone who like to offer their opinion on stuff (well, I'm using trip advisor!) this was a fun chance to review a new TV show. You basically sit and watch the show (of their choosing) in a screening rom with a touch screen computer in front of you that you will use to answer... More

So, I have to watch a tv show, rate it, only spend about an hour of my time and I get BOGO Nathan's Hotdogs and ice cream? Sure! Sign me up!

Want something FREE to do in Vegas? Have time to kill? This was interesting. You watch a TV pilot and rate it. Needed to waste an hour besides gambling away my money until my show started. Would I do it again? Sure! They give you coupons for your time after you complete the survey.

Free tickets are handed out in the MGM for this attraction. It is basically a change to watch a pilot TV show, and then answer a series of questions about it. You also have a device which you can turn up, or down, while you are watching, based on how funny you think it is. A good way to pass... More
