TV Show Tapings in New York

OK, so you just looked at your calendar and it's packed with both private and public parties, but you've got Saturday night free and think "Hmmmm, I wonder if I can score some FREE tickets to see a taping of Saturday Night Live?" Well, unfortunately, SNL doesn't tape in August (they take the summer off), but there are a LOT of shows that do tape year round.

This list includes shows that may or may not be taping while BlogHer is going on, but I know that many of us will be there early (or staying a few days after the conference to decompress before heading home).
