Are audience members brought down for sitcom scenes that need crowds?
I had asked this question before but I didn't get a single answer, so I decided to try it again.
I was watching the season one finale of Reba, and at the graduation scene, I looked at the audience in the stands and wondered something... are the extras in scenes with crowds supposed to be members of the live studio audience that are brought down to help out?

Due to union rules of the SAG/AFTRA (Screen Actors
Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists)
I don't know the rules, but I know
it is probably not something the union would like.
Also , they need to make sure they have enough extras in correct
clothing a head of time and to rehearse the scene.
They could do it occasionally as a publicity stunt or
as part of a contest..

"Brought down?" What does that mean?
