NBC Nightly Updates Set


Recommended Posts

Lester is finally back in the main studio tonight for the first time since the pandemic began I believe. I’ve missed all the cool shots they can do there! They stopped cool shots even before the pandemic and normally just did OTS shots except on Sundays but it seems they brought it all back.

For the sake of adding links to visuals, here are some newscasts to compare -- (not an accurate timeline / just a generalization)

1) Full body (old) - February 1, 2019

Thanks for these! Couldn’t screenshot YouTube TV on mobile and Forgot NBC uploads them to YouTube. The new use of the set looks great!! 🤩

Just in time for election day.

 

 

Reminds me a little bit of when ABC redid the World News Tonight set and graphics with a look that was maligned on here as "public bathroom tile."

So glad that Les is back at 30 Rock after over half a year at his home studio.

 

11/15 UPDATE: Les Holt returned to anchoring Nightly from his home studio as of last Thursday.

 

11/10/2020 UPDATE: Les Holt continues to use his home studio to anchor breaking news coverage--just like he did recently--and NIghtly News: Kids Edition.

The Nightly News studio looks good. Again NBC comes out as stronger of the big 4 in graphics and set design.

 

I'm liking the gloss, shine, and slight transparency to NN's lower thirds, rather than the boxy, Windows 10 style, flat, solid color graphics trend.

 

I wish they'd apply something like this to MSNBC's plain white box look (especially their COVID graphics).

 

The abbreviated Nightly News intro is too short. It'd be cool if they utilized something similar the late Brokaw early Williams era opening sequence.

I'm not a huge fan of the tweaks - I thought the initial wood version of the set was nice and contemporary feeling, with a slight midcentury vibe. This red white and blue hi-tech look kind of reminds me of CBS's current evening news look, which I do like, but I'm not sure this works as well.
