Like the other reviews,we waited three hours..Joey was okay, no give aways..Rachel seemed very rushed and tired. The experience was just okay. You should arrive an hour and a half early and should not have a problem getting in. They take 130 people. Parking is right across the street but fills up quickly. Other lots available near by. Check in was at 12 and we were finished by 4. Wear bright colors if you want to sit in the front.

Two friends and I attended a taping of Rachel Ray this week. The tickets, (which don't guarantee your admittance!) were for 12:00. We arrived and were about 40th in line at 10:30. When we finally entered at 1:00, we waited for an hour in a room too small for the amount of people in attendance. Restrooms were available as were bottled water and packaged muffins and brownies. The actual taping was pretty interesting. We were there for about 3 hours. We were coached by a warm up guy on when/how enthusiatically to clap, say "mmmmm", or "ahhhh". Rachel cooked for two segments, and there was a makeover segment. The segments were going to be part of different episodes so Rachel had a costume change at one point. I didn't realize just how much goes into a show like that. It must be exhausting for Rachel and crew. We left with a copy of Rachel's magazine. I would take a chance to go again (in hopes of a good audience giveaway!) in more pleasant weather. All that standing around in the cold wasn't worth it to me...

We went today and it was overbooked! I should have read these reviews beforehand. Apparently, this is very common for her show. Her staff was very uninformed, gave different times, different answers to everything we asked. We waited for standby for the second taping and still did not get in. They are very unaccommadating. Not really worth taking off to not get in to see the show.

after reading some of the prior reviews, I want to put my spin on the taping. Rachel Rays taping
is now on 26th st. We arrived an hour and a half early (12:00 call) but probably could have chance it a little latter. It was a very cold day, and they were expecting some snow. We waited
outside under a scaffolding, and there was a truck that was offering hot drinks and snacks as we
waited on line. The process was well organized and professional. The warm up comedian was wonderful, and Rachael just seems very down to earth. She makes it look so easy on TV, but
watching the taping, you realize all the prep that goes into making a show. I would definitely recommend the experience.

Went to an afternoon taping and got in after waiting 2 hrs in line . We were taking to a room where there was warm bottles of water and cheapy snack cakes . Got a front row seat but many times my view was blocked by camera men . Rachel seemed a lil rushed, maybe she was tired who knows. The guest was very nice and some what famous . Some fans reviewd products but we left the show with nothing more than Rachel's magazine . I was expecting a little something considering you wait soo long to get in but nothing . We left Starving after waiting all afternoon and smelling Rachel's food cooking . The warm up guy was the best part of the show .

Would def not take the trip again, not worth it .
