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.

In September 2009, in an effort to cut costs, NBC gave [[AdoredByTheNetwork Jay Leno]], recently retired from ''The Tonight Show'', a Monday-through-Friday, UsefulNotes/PrimeTime slot for a new VarietyShow, ''The Jay Leno Show'' [[note]](basically his ''TheTonightShow'' at 10:00 PM with a segment that copies one from [[TopGear a certain British automotive show]])[[/note]]. This was the first time that a network scheduled the same show five nights a week since TheFifties, and the [[InternetBackdraft response]] was both immediate and brutal.
