Aside from working on “NBC Nightly News”, Brian Williams created his own news magazine called “Rock Center with Brian Williams”, which aired on television from 2011 until 2012. Initially, the show aimed to present more serious issues than the already existing “Dateline NBC” show, as it focused on true crime stories and, instead of a multiple-story format adopted by “Dateline NBC”, presented a single story format. Even though the show received rather favorable reviews from the critics, “Rock Center with Brian Williams” failed to secure high ratings, and consequently was taken off air after two seasons and 76 episodes released.
