Brian Williams will be moonlighting Mondays this fall, but at least he won't have a long commute to his second job. Just a few steps, in fact. On Monday, NBC will premiere the live newsmagazine "Rock Center With Brian Williams," with the anchor of the No. 1-rated "NBC Nightly News" serving as host. Viewers might find the setting familiar: Both programs will originate from different corners of the same space, Studio 3B in the network's Rockefeller Center headquarters in New York.
