Did You Know?

Trivia:
The show began broadcasting from 10 Rockefeller Plaza in 1952. The studio was on street level with huge windows around which passers-by would gather to appear on TV. After a few years, the show moved to a more traditional studio in 30 Rockefeller Plaza, the worldwide headquarters of NBC. In 1994, the show relocated to that same glass-enclosed studio, 1-A.See more »

Please go to 0.25 hour format, 30 April 2006
Author: hankhanks12345 from Massachusetts, USA

Someone suggested the show go to a 1 hour format, because that would be plenty of time to get what they wanted in. Well, how about going to a 15 minute format. That's about how much substance there is on any given show.

Even the weather primarily consists of Al Roker joking around on the plaza. I actually like him, but they should stop the charade that he's giving a forecast and just say "Here's Al Roker, who is going to schmooze a bit on the plaza and then unhelpfully gesture toward a map the United States and mention that in some part of the country it will rain. Or not rain."
