‘Now’ borrows a set in the nation’s capitol

MSNBC’s “Now with Alex Wagner” was broadcast from Washington, D.C. today.

Instead of using the two main desks on the MSNBC set, they opted to recreate the setup used in New York City by “Now.” To do this, MSNBC borrowed the riser and chairs used on “The Chris Matthews Show,” a nationally syndicated program also taped in this studo.
