Many diferent TV networks and individual shows are filmed in Midtown Manhattan and you can be part of the tapings. For most of the shows you need to write or e-mail ahead requesting tickets. Some also have a waiting list in case ticket holders don't show up, so if nothing else you can go early and hope for the best.
In the case of the morning news shows, TODAY SHOW, GMA, etc, even if you don't have tickets you can hang around outside and see different segments being presented on live TV. To get a good position though you have to be there early, around 6:30 am!

GMA allows guests to enter the studio.
NBC Today Show(in Reckefeller Center) and CBS Morning Show SE corner of Central Park, 5th Ave and 59th St) only have areas outside the studio.
