Overview

The first and most famous studio tour in television history is now better than ever. It's more in depth. More interactive. And, above all, more fun. You’ll enjoy behind-the-scenes access to the studios where your favorite shows are made. Like Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers and more. An NBC Page will serve as your host and behind-the-scenes expert, guiding you through the historic halls of 30 Rock. You’ll learn about the entire TV production process, from the writing process and producing to the ways TV content gets to your home. You’ll then experience it all first hand as you and your fellow Tour guests produce your own show in our brand new Tour Studio. You can then download your show to keep for free.

This was a great experience. We got to see 3 studios (SNL, tonight show, and NBC Nightly News). the two pages giving the tour were especially helpful. This isn't something you would do twice, but you must do it once.

The folks at NBC give you plenty of opportunity to geek out over their personalities. Whether or not you can score some free show taping tickets or if can just see the backstage tour, it’s a good program well executed by the NBC pages.
