‘Nightly’ keeps look as Holt takes helm
The opening graphics and title card remained the same, including the continued use of the new, angled tease graphics introduced just over a week ago.
Gone, however, is actor Michael Douglas as the voice of “Nightly,” but Holt’s name is now appended to the show’s logo — though NBC already had a version with his name since he was the regular anchor of the weekend edition.
Meanwhile, “Nightly” continues to experiment with camera setups — Holt started Monday’s broadcast standing slightly away from the studio’s smaller desk. As the broadcast started, Holt took a step forward and placed his scripts on the desk.
It’s worth noting that the coffee mug Holt was using was a generic NBC News one and not a “Nightly” branded one bearing Williams’ name like Holt used in the day immediately following the start of Williams’ suspension in February.
