No one comes to LA to see the stars in the sky. So if you want to see the real stars, go visit them on TV. Here’s how to score tickets for some of the hottest shows in tinsel town.

Admittedly so, Ellen’s show are some of the toughest tickets in town to score. But still worth a try, and we can’t imagine even standing in the Riff-Raff Room isn’t worth it!

Dancing With The Stars
We won’t lie, tickets are hard to come by, but still worth trying to tap your way into the audience. For tickets, you can visit ocatv.com or call On Camera Audiences at 818.295.2700.
