Update On My Quest to Get Oprah Tickets...

Back in September in this blog post I vowed to go to a taping of the Oprah show this year. Like I said there, I'm not some weird overexcited fan (really, I'm not!), I've just liked many of her shows over the last decade and I like her. So, I received this e-mail last week:

Thank you for your interest in attending a taping of The Oprah Show.

Unfortunately, we were unable to accommodate your reservation request.

Continue to visit the Oprah Show Reservations area on Oprah.com to see when we'll be offering reservations for upcoming shows.

You can also click here to check for last-minute reservation opportunities, as additional seats often become available at short notice.

Sincerely,

The Oprah Show Audience Team

Well, this won't deter me; like the e-mail encouraged me to do, I'm going to keep on trying, especially for one of those last-minute seats! There are about four more months until the end of the show. I am determined to be in the audience for a taping of one of those final shows. I didn't move all the way out to the Midwest to not be successful in this (the show is taped in Chicago, which we now live less than four hours away from!). Wish me luck!

I'd love to got to an Oprah show! Good luck Donna! IF you can get a ticket it would definitely be a day to remember.

So do you have to "apply" to get a ticket everyday? Or how does it work? I hope you get one! It's awesome that you only live four hours away, so you could get there relatively easy.

Good luck! Hope you make it!

You can only apply for a ticket when they're offering it, which isn't very often, so you have to check the website often to see if they are or not. I've only been able to apply once so far when the ticket window was open!
