Relatively new Trend that Promises a Great Time
It was in the '40's when live audience first participated during shooting of TV shows, in New York theaters. It was naturally a shock for everyone watching the shows over the television screen.
In 1951, I Love Lucy was the first sitcom ever filmed in front of an audience, possible only because of multiple cameras set around the stage. Popular TV shows such as Seinfelda and Friends later utilised the same technique.
Mid 20th century also saw films and theatre blend in full, making the cinematic experience ever-appealing.
While audience participation is one of the most important elements of any TV show, it wasn't until such programs became increasingly popular in every household that it grew ever stronger.
It enabled people experience the real action first hand, even if it meant that filming contained bloopers or other gaffs of live shooting. Such situations made the situations feel funnier than the shows themselves at times, with actors displayed as what they in the first place really are - humans, just like everyone else.
It also meant a deeper connection between the viewers and the actors as this is what entertainment is in the nutshell all about - enlivening people's lives. We can only imagine how rewarding it must be for an actor too see the impact of their performance in the eyes of a viewer.
Be a Part of the Show
Being a part of the live audience during a TV show shooting brings along plentiful marvelous memories. It is an experience not to be missed, with some quizzes and educational TV shows allowing direct audience involvement.
For example, in Who Wants to be a Millionaire on-scene viewers can make a difference between win and loss as the contestant asks audience for their thoughts on the correct answer.
