About the studio...

NBC began in 1926 as a radio network. With the invention of television, NBC was in the forefront and began experimenting with telecasts as early as 1932. In 1939, NBC televised the opening ceremonies of the New York World's Fair. Milton Berle launched 'Texaco Star Theater' in 1948 and it was so successful that NBC signed him to a lifetime contract for "putting television on the map". For the first time, NBC aired it's entire production schedule in color. The year was 1965.

Over the years NBC has brought us such classic series as 'Bonanza', 'Rowan & Martin's Laugh In', 'Cheers', 'Seinfeld' and 'ER'. Currently, only 'The Tonight Show' is taped here.

TONIGHT SHOW TICKETS Tickets are available from NBC at their box office the day of the show. The ticket office opens at 8 AM, but you would be well advised to get there early as tickets are distributed on a first come first serve basis.

Or, even easier, you can also reserve and print tickets online by clicking here as well.
