Many tourists visit hoping for a brief street-side encounter with their favorite celeb, but this may not be the most effective way of touching the hem of stardom. Several of the most popular shows are taped at NBC Studios, including “Saturday Night Live.” The popular “Today” show with hosts Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira, broadcasts live weekdays from 7am to 9am from its glass-walled studio on the corner of 49th Street and Rockefeller Plaza.
