NBC's TV unit gets new name

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

It's NUTS no more.

NBC's TV production arm is changing its name from NBC Universal Television Studio, or NUTS for short, to Universal Media Studios.

The name change was a nod to the increasing importance of creating entertainment for the Web. The studio produces such TV shows as "House" for Fox, "The Office" and "Heroes" and the cable programs "Battlestar Galactica" and "Monk."
