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.

If you are a fan of Saturday Live and Jimmy Fallon this is the tour for you. It was exciting to tour the studios of both these favorites. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.

I have no idea, but if you're close to NBC Studios, stop in the store. If there are any extra tickets, they have them. And you may be lucky enough to get free tickets to Seth Myers or Jimmy Fallon Monologue rehearsal.
