The idea to try 3-D has been a few years in the making. Early on, Ray and her team saw a demonstration by the Real-D company, and began thinking of ways to bring it to her daytime show.
"I was so freaked out about my Real-D experience that I wanted to be the first show of its kind to do it," she says.
Her usual set was redesigned and given a Halloween theme, with special equipment brought in for the experience. (3-D glasses also were distributed in this week's edition of TV Guide.) The entire show is not in 3-D, she says, so viewers who didn't get the glasses won't feel left out.
