Mad Money with Jim Cramer
  Mad Money show tapes at the CNBC studios in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey and is usually shot without a studio audience. However, there are two types of shows that do allow the inclusion and participation of live studio members. The first type is the Back to School Specials, where Cramer takes his show to a college or university and broadcasts live with students and special guests being part of his audience. The second is the Main Event show or special anniversary or theme shows that are taped sporadically. During these shows, Cramer invites a studio audience of about 150 people to sit in on the filming. Cramer allows his guests to hit the sound affects buttons, make shout-outs to friends, give the guests high fives and also allows them to ask questions about the subject being discussed on the show. The whole show with a studio audience is an interactive and rewarding experience for both the audience and Cramer, but it is quite exhausting, so Cramer limits the number of shows to a bare minimum. Cramer has also taped shows focused on women investors and for Father's Day, where he invited children into the audience. The theme for that show was the importance of passing down financial wisdom from generation to generation. As just about all of his anniversaries are taped before a live studio audience, tickets are available from CNBC to see Mad Money, but it is an exclusive invitation.
