Failing to get into Harvard Law School, Zucker instead began his career at NBC with an internship covering the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul. After that, he became a field producer for the NBC daytime news and talk show “Today,” and in 1992 became the program’s executive producer. Notably, Zucker introduced the show’s signature outdoor rock concert series, one of the reasons he was credited with turning the show into a ratings smash.
Having worked his way up the corporate ranks, Zucker was named the president of NBC Entertainment in 2000. Under his leadership, NBC achieved major success with such reality television shows as “Fear Factor” and “The Apprentice,” as well as with the continuation of the sitcom “Friends.” Additionally, Zucker introduced the hit series “Scrubs,” “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” and “Las Vegas,” and launched the idea of airing episodes of NBC comedies that surpassed the standard 30 minutes. Due to his success, Zucker became president of NBC’s News and Cable Group in late 2003. The next year, following the merger of NBC with Vivendi Universal, he was named the president of the newly formed NBCUniversal Television Group.
In late 2005, Zucker was promoted to CEO of NBCUniversal Television Group, making him responsible for all the programming across the company’s television properties. He subsequently became president and CEO of NBCUniversal in early 2007. In this position, however, he was unable to replicate his past triumphs, as NBC fell from its number-one network ranking to the lowest ranking of the four primary broadcast networks. This was due in part to Zucker’s botched handling of “The Tonight Show” and the consequent PR fallout. In mid-2010, after Comcast acquired NBCUniversal, Zucker was paid between $30 million to $40 million to leave the company.
