That said, NBC remains a bastion of superb foreign affairs reporting -- particularly regarding the Middle East -- thanks to boasting the single most veteran, experienced, and knowledgeable war correspondent to land on TV in the 21st century in the form of Richard Engel, who has virtually lived in the Levant since 1996, made his name covering the 2002 invasion of Iraq as the last American reporter left in Baghdad, and became the gold standard of Middle Eastern coverage during the Arab Spring for nearly the entirety of the news business.

Near the end of 1981, following the departure of Chuck Woolery from ''Wheel of Fortune'' [[note]](which Silverman had cancelled in 1980, only to reverse the decision after a "series finale" had been taped in favor of cutting Creator/DavidLetterman's daytime talk show from 90 to 60 minutes; he had already cancelled ''Series/HighRollers'', ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares''[[note]]which he'd been trying to kill off for a while up to that point- he had passed the show up while at CBS in the 60s and obviously wasn't happy at seeing it become such a big success here; prior to this, his repeated timeslot changing for the show had inadvertently helped to kill off ''Series/{{Whew}}'' over on CBS[[/note]] and ''Series/ChainReaction'' to make room for it- ironically, the latter show reused music from ''Supertrain'' as the theme)[[/note]], Silverman strongly opposed series creator MervGriffin's choice of Pat Sajak (at the time, a weatherman at KNBC), claiming he was "too local". Merv's response was to stop production of ''Wheel''. Indeed, Silverman hated game shows (at CBS he cancelled the original ''Password'' after arguing with Mark Goodson, while at ABC he canned ''Series/BreakTheBank1976'' after 15 weeks to expand a pair of soap operas, despite it being the #3 show in daytime).

NBC also owns many other channels, among them Creator/{{Syfy}}, [[USANetwork USA]] (home of shows like ''Series/{{Monk}}'' and ''Series/{{Psych}}''), Universal HD, Bravo, Oxygen, [[TheENetwork E!]], Esquire Network (formerly Style, a spinoff of E!), Golf Channel, Creator/TheWeatherChannel (which is actually a joint venture between NBC Universal and two private equity firms), and Creator/{{Sprout}}. Through Comcast they also own plenty of regional sports and news networks. This means that there is often some synergization between the networks, such as former Comcast channel Versus becoming the NBC Sports Network and Golf Channel and Sprout getting their own blocks on NBC (Golf Channel on NBC and NBC Kids, respectively). Local stations with a Comcast Sportsnet in the market also have had their sports department merged in for cost efficiencies. Creator/{{G4TV}} was originally planned to become Esquire Network, but that fell through for various reasons; the network would close on December 31, 2014.

Whereas [[TouchstonePictures Touchstone/Buena Vista Television]] and [[Creator/{{Paramount}} Paramount Television]] eventually took on corporate names to match their partners (ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios respectively), NBC's in-house productions like ''{{Smash}}'' and ''Series/ThirtyRock'' now go out under the [[{{Universal}} Universal Television]] banner alongside actual Universal-produced series like ''Series/{{House}}'' and ''Series/{{Parenthood}}'' (as did ''Series/{{The Office|US}}'', a genuine NBC/Universal co-production). {{Filler}} documentaries made up of old ''Dateline'' episodes, along with other pop culture interview programs for networks such as E! and the Discovery networks, are produced by a division of NBC News known as Peacock Productions.
