PRERECORDED: Interesting concept, when you start thinking.  Of course, they recorded the event when it happened, not before, so why don't they say recorded?  How can anything be prerecorded?

Some television shows are produced by the linguistically impaired and announce for all to hear, "Prerecorded before a live studio audience."

But then, maybe that's not so redundant.  The late Johnny Carson was funniest when dealing with a dead studio audience.

To their credit, some shows get it right:  "This show was recorded before a studio audience."

Listen for it.
