In Manhattan there are so many shows to attend. For me, I’m a huge fan of comedy so I had the opportunity to attend one of my favorite late-night shows, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. For those who may not know what it is about, The Daily Show is a 30 minute satire “fake news” show that airs on Comedy Central. The show consists of what is happening in the world and gives its own spin to it by bringing comedy into the news. While at the studio, you basically get to see how everything is done in the perspective of a live studio audience.
I previously used to help out another show on Comedy Central called “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore” (which is also similar to The Daily Show) with audience recruiting within campus, so I attended way too many episodes. But as someone who loves comedy and this type of genre, it just never gets old. There isn’t much to say about it other than it’s a great time if you have never been to a show.. I can almost guarantee that you’ll want to attend another!
If anyone is interested in attending a taping, check out this link for the days they need a studio audience. The studio is located at 733 11th Avenue, New York, NY 10019.
The show airs every weeknight at 11 PM on Comedy Central.
Last week, my mom’s boyfriend hooked me and my TV 101 class up with a tour at Fox Studios, and man was it awesome! I had been on the tour before a few years ago, but I was so excited to get to take my whole class and professor with me
It was so awesome to see everything that we learned in the classroom, come to life right in front of us in the various control rooms and sets. Seeing all of the cameras and equipment in front of u was mesmerizing compared to our tiny NYIT studio! Not only that, but it was pretty cool seeing ourselves on camera. We had to have a little fun.
Attempting to read the teleproctor about Donald Trump (I’m blind and hate Trump, that explains my face)
My parents posted this to their Facebooks’ and pretended I was actually on TV -_-
I loved being able to see everyone’s reactions to everything, and be able to see that they were actually genuinely interested in what was going on, rather than just staring at their phones in class. Everyone was learning a lot and asking a lot of questions too! It just felt good to see that something that I initiated for the class was having a benefit on everyone around me.
Towards the end of the tour, we were able to sneak onto Stuart Varney’s political talk show and watch him broadcast live on the air for his last two scenes, or “blocks”. (Varney & Co.) After he ended, Stuart and his production directors stayed with us for a while to tell us all about how much they love their jobs and answer any questions we had, and of course take a picture!
Overall, the tour was a ton of fun. I learned more than I did last time and I was happy to see everyone around me thoroughly enjoy themselves too, and realize hat we’re earning in class isn’t a lie, it actually happens on the set all the time. Next, I’m going to try for NBC. 😉
During the weekend, I had to work for preview day over at the NYIT Old Westbury Campus. I had to direct people to their locations and chaperoned students while on the bus.
As I was directing a group of upcoming Communication Arts students to a session, I realized something that got me so upset. I entered the main room, which is the studio room and I was astonished. They had a full news cast studio with a backdrop, a sound room, a prompter and so much more. Compared to the studio in Manhattan, their studio looked professional.
They also had another set full of couches, tables and more cameras. As I walked out, I passed through a wall full of pictures. They were pictures of newscasters that had graduated from the NYIT Old Westbury Campus. (Picture is below) Under their picture, it stated where they worked. It varied from “Long Island News 12” to “Fox News”.
Why am I upset? Because my goal is to become an anchor for a news company and I feel like I’m not being fully educated as I would be in the Old Westbury Campus. All the head chairs in my Major explained to me that the Communication Arts department in both campuses were similar, not totally the opposite from one another. They actually have a news cast every morning, which I would love. In Manhattan we do small projects like commercials or small talk shows that are never serious, but never a real news cast. And our props are hideous. We barely use the prompter as well.
Lastly, we don’t have any anchors that graduated from the Manhattan Campus. Its just upsetting that I don’t have the same education and experience that the Old Westbury Communication Arts students have. I don’t know what I’m going to do.
Today’s top headlining entertainment news story just so happens to be the announcement of Beyonce headlining next year 2013’s SUPERBOWL Halftime Show!
Everybody who watches the SuperBowl knows the most anticipated moment is the Halftime Show where some of the biggest stars perform for 15mins or so…an artist’s Halftime Performance can either break or make their career in the future. Previous most rememorable performances included Madonna, Janet Jackson, Slash, Bruce Springsteen and notable others.
I can’t wait to see what Beyonce is going to perform, secretly (as always does) Beyonce uploaded a still image of her in the studio of what it seems like recording new music hopefully which will be out early next year.
Maybe Beyonce will perform her new song during 2013’s NFL SuperBowl Halftime Show.
I’M SUPER EXCITED!
The Countdown Is On!
QUEEN BEY !!!
For those who don’t know, I am a H U G E BEYONCE fan; I completely idolize her in every way!
