I recommend doing this as one of the first things you do in Vegas. Here you have the opportunity to preview an up and coming show and give your opinion about it. Ours was a crime type show. I say to check it out first because after you give your opinion they give you an envelope with coupons including one... More

We got sent here on the spur of the moment by a guy handing out "tickets" in the MGM lobby. We saw a 1/2 hour sitcom and spent another 1/2 hour answering a survey about it. The show was horrible but the experience was mildly interesting, an OK diversion from the usual Vegas fare. Mildly recommended, if you don't have... More

We got to screen an episode of a Criminal Minds, one of my favorite shows. The process was simple and it was fascinating to be a part of reviewing a tv show. This is not only free, but they gave us some great coupons afterward as well.

I was extremely disappointed by this experience. My sister and I went expecting to watch a fun TV show, take a survey on our experience, and be compensated for our time. In fact, we were each handed a flier telling us that we would earn $20 for our opinions. Instead, we watched a quite gory television show (even though the... More

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
