Merv Griffin[edit]

Merv Griffin has a new show called "Let's Play Crosswords," which is set to debut this fall or next in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles, the country's three biggest media markets. There is also a possibility that the show may be produced at NBC Tower in Chicago (WMAQ). [1] I think this should be mentioned under the NBC Tower section.

Merger Proposal[edit]

It seems to me, in reading through these articles, that NBC Radio City Studios is merely a historical name for NBC Studios dating to the radio days, at least as far as the New York facility is concerned. Considering many of the same television shows are listed as broadcasting from the same studio in both articles, there's little doubt in my mind that the facilities at 30 Rock are the exact same spaces converted for television, and shouldn't have a separate article for an historical, former name that is not the common name any more.

LA seems a bit harder, as the former radio facility was torn down and replaced with the current Burbank studios. But, considering that the Burbank studios are supposedly not long for this world themselves, maybe a combined LA/West Coast section briefly describing the history of the successive West coast facilities (starting with the San Francisco radio studios, up to the new facilities being built at Universal Studios Hollywood).

Overall, though, it certainly strikes me that the New York facility is the same place and that the two should be combined at the shorter, current, more common name. oknazevad (talk) 23:07, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Since no one has responded here in over six months, I am removing the move tags for now.Markhh (talk) 22:46, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Burbank Game Shows[edit]

Game shows at NBC Burbank in the '70s and '80s moved around from studio to studio. Tonight was always in studio 1 but the game shows were shuffled around among studios 1, 2, 3 and 4. Studio 1 was used on weekends but NBC claimed it was expensive to move the Tonight show set in and out. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:09, 30 January 2010 (UTC)


"NBC Studios" automatically redirects here. Shouldn't it have a disambiguation page that links both the New York & the Burbank studios? MegastarLV (talk) 16:35, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
