Today (The Today Show) - American NBC breakfast television magazine, broadcast live. It debuted on January 14, 1952, being the first television program of its kind in the United States and in the world. He set a model for similar productions that soon began to appear on other TV stations. It is the third longest-running American television show. Initially, it was published only from Monday to Friday. In 1987, the Sunday airing (currently one hour) began, and in 1992 - Saturday (two hours). In 2000, the broadcast time per working week was extended to three hours. Since 2007, the program has been running for four hours. The position of the program remained unchallenged by other networks until the late 1980s, when it gave way in terms of viewership to Good Morning America, broadcast by a competing station ABC. However, he managed to regain his dominant position (according to Nielsen ratings) on December 11, 1995, which he holds to the present day. The program is broadcast from Studio 1 A, located in the GE Building, located in the Rockefeller Center complex in Manhattan (Midtown Manhattan). During the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, the program was broadcast live from the studio located at the top of Grouse Mountain, overlooking Vancouver and located near the Cypres Mountain Ski Area, which hosted participants in the free-skiing and snowboarding competitions.
