Seeing Stars: Free Tickets to Studio Tapings

taped at Sony Entertainment Studios
10202 W. Washington Boulevard,
Culver City, CA. / (310) 280-8000

Bad news.

In June of 2000, Columbia/TriStar announced that they were cancelling the "Donny & Marie" show, due to low ratings.

(I'll leave this page up for a while, but alas, the show is history.)

You may remember when Donny & Marie Osmond had their own variety show back in the late 70's. Well, it's 20 years later, but the duo is back together again, and their brother/sister schtick hasn't really changed that much.

This time, though, they're hosting a syndicated TV talk show, along with their usual song and dance numbers. It's called (what else?) "Donny & Marie," (It airs locally weekdays at 10 a.m. on KTTV, Channel 11.)

The show is taped before a live studio audience at Sony Pictures Studios (formerly the historic MGM Studios), which means you have the chance to see Donny & Marie in person, along with their celebrity guests. For free tickets, just call Audiences Unlimited at (818)-260-0041. (A ticket does not guarantee admittance to the studio; seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis to those with tickets).

You can get special priority seating at the tapings by becoming a member of the Donny Osmond International Network (D.O.I.N.), Network members are allowed two priority tickets for each taping they attend. For more information about To reserving your priority seat tickets, go to


So what kind of celebrities can you expect to see on "Donny & Marie"? Well, their guests for the last two weeks of April included William Shatner, Kenny Rogers, Kristen Johnson, Melissa Joan Hart, Stephen Baldwin, Shirley Jones, Carol Kane, Jennifer O'Neill, Ahmet & Dweezil Zappa, Rick Springfield, Sable, Michael Bergin, Kim Alexis, Florence Henderson, Estelle Getty and Julia Sweeney, along with several non-celebrity guests and singers.
