I don’t know if I’m allowed, it seemed very deliberate yesterday.
I’ve already had Wayne and Linda tweet me back in support.
But I’m afraid for tomorrow. I don’t even have my turn away ticket, I went to my work very upset and ranting to my coworkers and left it there. So I probably won’t get in on my normal ticket anyway.
valvesoftware said: I went to first taping of the season and didn't see that problem. They made us cheer and look happy, but that's very normal for live audiences. I'm confused about what you felt.
Yeah they said that to us. But the “instructions” I mentioned were given for the special groups that were brought in to fill the audiences with the right look.
4th seater: Gary Anthony Williams
special guests: Mel B. & Matt Barnes
The best Duet came tonight to Matt Barnes. But they can’t and won’t air it because they are worried about Joe Jackson suing the show.
Ryan got stuck on his prop so he asked the audience.
When production was going through checking the bags for What’s In The Bag I heard one of them say about one “she clearly stuffed this one” and they took it anyway saying “the salt made the bag”. So pro tip if you want your bag used: they stopped caring about stuffing. In January I heard them complain about it being stuffed and returned it.
Wayne, during pickups: “Does Wayne Brady have to choke a Brit?” Poor Dan. But after 3 days of pickups I agree.
People keep coming earlier and earlier now. If you like waiting….1:30. For next weekend. FYI!

Why do you think they're leaving out more classic improv games like that, and using this stupid 'let's lay on the floor' game, or moving people (which, let's be honest, is just making Ryan & Colin look like old pervs)?
I honestly have no idea. Last year they played the same games EVERY taping and still managed to only air the same games leaving a LOT out which was surprising…they could have shown more variety. This time they had more variety per tapings.
I think so too.
But it’s kind of funny but also really nice to know that people who aren’t able to attend the tapings can see what they’re doing, because I’m so in the middle of it I wonder how much is actually coming across to everyone else.
So thanks for validating me & my bitching!

Ah yay! Weirdo. Thank you :)I was the one falling asleep in the second row. (Not kidding, had work at 5am that day)
