The couch set is located in a small corner where the former "TV wall stand up area" was for reporters. If you're familiar with the layout of the building, the door to the current newsroom is also there, kinda looks tacky right next to the nice couch set but can't really do anything about that. I also believe in the WB and 2008 era before they moved the newsroom, that was the location of the assignment desk. All of the edit bays are still intact, they added some nice "mood lighting" inside of them to compliment the set (still used for storage tho). The former ND's office is still being used as the weather office, they moved their touchscreen monitor to the corner where the entrance to the office is, between the stairs and the office door. I will say once again I am very pleased to see they used every square inch of studio space they had for this set. The barn doors do look awkward however, I will agree. It would be also nice for them to do some upstairs balcony shots, maybe with a reporter doing a stand up and you can see the set downstairs. I know the lighting grid is in the way in most locations, but I'm sure they could make it work.
