    This is great! Great tips for other potential audience members! My dress is like the “Where’s Waldo”. Next on my list: Oprah (but I doubt we’ll get a photo with her).

    I was on the Marilyn Denis show today and thought that the method of seating by the audience coordinator Jay was very unfair. I was standing in line quite early (around 8:45 am for the morning show) but where you were in line made no difference at all in seating. Everyone is waiting in the holding room for about 40 mins. At the time we were supposed to be going into the studio, he kept calling out parties names to be seated in all the nice spots where the view was not obstructed and you could be seen on TV. He did this until there were only about 14 people left (myself and my guest were 2 of them) and then he said the rest of you can all go in. He then just filled the last two back rows with us where we could not see Marilyn’s guest because the back of their chair was facing us. Our particular section never once appeared on TV (I know because I just watched the live show on TV with my PVR).

    In response to your comment about young and ethnic people having an edge in being seated, I am both young and ethnic so its not really true. I realize he might have had to fill the first couple of rows by hand selection but I wish the audience coordinators would be more fair and do the rest of it on a first come, first served basis.

    Other than that Marilyn Denis is very personable and entertaining, it was great to have a picture with her after the show.

      Hi Samantha! Thanks for coming back and letting everyone know of your experience. It has been a while since I attended but I`m hoping this was a one off situation. Perhaps those called out were part of a special tour,media or friends of the guests being featured? I know that can happen at times. It’s a shame that you weren’t on tv or get the chance to watch everything live. So glad you had a chance to get a picture with her! Do you think you’d attend a show again?

        Friends and I got seperate tickets to the same cityline taping. Do they let you choose your own seats or choose for you?

          I believe they’ll let you walk in and sit together. I remember them asking how many in our group so you can say two instead of 1 + 1 . Have an awesome time!!

          Totally fair! I did write this a while back and so I’m sure things may have changed. Did you enjoy the show?

    Hi Yashy,

    Unfortunately, the majority of the audience was not media, tours or friends of the guests being featured. I’ve been to other shows where the first couple of rows were pre-selected but nothing like today where about 85% was picked out before hand by the audience coordinator of where to be seated. I hope that by posting this the audience coordinator will be more sensitive and fair to future guests and allow people who were waiting in line longer to have access to better seats.

    Despite this, I am still a Marilyn fan and would probably attend again. She has a warm, welcoming energy to her.

    Beenthe show twice and not impressed they make you wait outside seems like a long time and then you can go in and they take you upstairs then you’re standing in a holding area with some minimal seats and you just waiting and waiting and waiting its seem like half an hour and then they start calling your name and its not according to the when you came in its I don’t know how they base that name calling and your name is called you go down to the show our names are called last. Would not attend again. City line. treat their audience with more respect not like a herd of cattle standing in roped area for up to.half hour

      Oh no! Sorry you had to wait that long!!! I do agree the holding patterns are a bit odd and I have no idea how they determine who sits where. Wonder if it has anything to do with clothing/colours/patterns?
