Guest Host Star
Arrival Time

The Monday evening tapings are from 7:00 to 8:30 PM and the Saturday morning tapings are from 10:00 to 11:30 AM. Be sure to speak with the creative director or executive producer about your actual arrival time. On the day that you are scheduled to be taped, it is best to plan to get to the studio about 15-20 minutes before your show taping - just to catch your breath; go to the rest room; adjust your clothing, hair, and makeup; have something to drink; and relax a bit.

Show Time

With our 30 minute show format, you will only have about 25 minutes to chat on the air. We need to have 60 seconds for the title frames, 60 seconds to introduce you, 60 seconds to close the show, and 120 seconds for the credits. (Credits will be rolled over a video, the set, or the show's final product.)

Studio Show Stage Set Up

We will be using a ________________ ____________back drop for your show. We will have a ______________ theme and a table for guests to sit at.

Star Cast Clothing and Makeup Suggestions

We need to stay away from all black and all white as well as bright red. If you have a light complexion, wear more, darker, and brighter makeup than you normally do as you automatically look about four shades lighter in the bright lights. Conversely, if you are very dark, you may want to lighten your skin tone a couple of shades. Red, high gloss lipstick tends to bleed. Stay away from make up glosses and shinny clothing. Wear fuller hair, as our hair seems to get flattened by the camera.
