In the meantime there is a CBS Store on the corner of the building. There you can find Letterman gear and stuff from most of the CBS shows. CSI fans will be giddy with all the CSI gear. If you are hungry, you can go around the corner and see Rupert at the Hello Deli. Or if you have already eaten but want to sit for a few minutes (or stay warm like we did), there is a Starbucks located diagonally across from the theater.
Make sure you come back when you’re supposed to. From here, you will start to be directed to your seats. Even if it happens to hit 100° F outside, make sure to bring a sweater or sweatshirt with you. If you have ever heard Dave’s guest complain about the cold, their right. This place is freezing. Especially if you are in the balcony! We only sat around for a few minutes before Paul and the band came out to play and keep us entertained. Then someone came out and told us what to expect and what to do. Finally, Dave came out himself and welcomed the audience. Then the show started. The taping runs about 1 hour, and there are only short pauses for what are later commercial breaks.
There is not really a way to find out who will be on the show the day of your visit until your butt is already firmly planted in the seat. During our taping, Senator Howard Dean was on the show and some horrible band called Franz Ferdinand. Believe me, I would have much rather seen Johnny Depp or Gerry Butler. But it is fun just to be able to tell everyone you were at least in a TV audience.

It was fun at the beginning of this adventure although it took all day between line ups and prep time before the show. I was a little disappointed with Dave's attitude towards us but still had fun. I wouldn't do it again but I would recommend it if you have some free time in the Big Apple.
