  • Relax, take a breath, you've got this:)
  • Out of all the studios in LA, this is my favorite lot to work on. There is so much history. Also, rumor has it that it's haunted...
  • When the red light's on, your mouth is off!
  • The Arsenio Hall Show debuted here in 1989! Hailed as the African-American answer to "The Tonight Show," Arsenio's show became a staple for the younger gen. Learn more at theurbandaily.com/music
  • Quiet on the set
  • Tours are $35 and MUST be reserved in advance! Morning tours will see more activity on the lot, as afternoons are generally more lazy.
