The NBC Studio Tour is one of the most popular attractions in New York City. The NBC tour takes visitors through the corridors of the famed 30 Rockefeller Center building (even more famous now thanks to Tina Fey's SNL-inspired sitcom 30 Rock). You will learn all about NBC's days as a radio network and its transition to television in the NBC History Theatre, while the NBC/Sharp HDTV Theater stop offers visitors a glimpse of the future with a spectacular presentation on its high-definition 130-degree screen.
But most people agree that the best part of the NBC Studio Tour is seeing the actual studios where some of NBC's greatest shows are filmed, including Saturday Night Live, Late Night With Conan O'Brien, NBC Sports, NBC Nightlight News, and Dateline NBC. Because one or more of these shows might actually be filming at the time of your tour, the NBC pages can't take you to all of these, but usually two or three are available for viewing at any given time. Be sure to keep your eye out for NBC stars and other celebrities who can occasionally be found walking the halls of 30 Rock.
