NBC news man (and frequent 30 ROCK guest star) Brian Williams has a new news magazine show launching soon called ROCK CENTER. NBC is currently constructing a new multimillion-dollar studio for the show which has been a TV version of an archaeological dig.
"We've found a piece of the set from the soap opera THE DOCTORS," Williams told TV Guide. "And an old applause sign from when they did live TV there."
THE DOCTORS last aired on December 31, 1982.
Soap history uncovered! No word on what the set piece was or what they did with it.
Meanwhile, We Love Soaps contacted SFM, the company that owns the rights to THE DOCTORS and here's the latest update on what's happening with the show: "We are in discussions right now with a major cable channel about resurrecting THE DOCTORS. There is also a possibility for a syndication of the episodes, especially since ABC cancelled two major soaps. Stay tuned."
In other THE DOCTORS news, former star Alec Baldwin is hosting SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE this weekend for a record 16th time. He told Philly.com: "I'd like to think that I have some place in the fabric of NBC's history. I'm not Johnny Carson or Katie Couric, but I've done [30 ROCK] for six years and SNL. I actually started my career [there] doing a soap opera, so I have a lot of NBC on my resumé - for me to now be a question during a building tour, it makes sense."
