Rachael Ray Show in New York City

Tickets for the Rachael Ray Show are very popular and are often more difficult to get than other shows, so it can sometimes take up to a year long wait for tickets. To get tickets, fill out a form on their website. The Rachael Ray Show also offers standby tickets which require showing up at 10 am for the 11:30 am show, and 2:30 pm for the 4 pm show. Standby tickets allow individuals to take the place of audience guests that do not show up.
