If the show goes out live - in other words, in its full spontaneity - it is not going to be filmed. But it doesn't go out live; nor is it filmed: it is recorded on tape.
Videotape is as important a medium as film. It's a pity that commentators and even television practitioners have taken to describing all television as "filmed" even when it is not.
