Brian Williams Angry With NBC? 'Rock Center' Segment Calls New Timeslot 'Latest Resting Place' [VIDEO]

Is Brian Williams angry with NBC?

In a segment that aired on Friday's episode of "Rock Center" Williams mocked NBC brass for moving his show three times since it premiered on the network in November 2011.

In a segment that was more of a playful riff than an angry rant, Williams depicted his show as a caravan of pioneers on the Western Frontier in a covered wagon finding they were "not wanted" on Wednesday.

The new "Rock Center" timeslot, 10 p.m. Friday nights on NBC, is called the program's "latest resting place."

Additionally, anonymous NBC News sources told the Hollywood Reporter that Brian Williams was angry with NBC executives for not following through with the promotion they had promised the show. Plans to re-air "Rock Center" throughout the week have been abandoned.

Although it may have angered Williams, the show's move to Friday night worked out well for the NBC brass.

The show's premiere last Friday night received 5.5 million viewers, 85 percent better than the show "Do No Harm" did in that timeslot the night before.

And "Rock Center" Executive Producer Andrea Wallace shrugged off the idea that Williams was angry with NBC in a statement to the Huffington Post.

"Brian's take on our new time slot was truly funny and the furthest thing from 'angry,'" Wallace said. "He made light of our travels through the schedule---and we are all thrilled by Rock Center's strong ratings after our Friday night debut. We look forward to settling down in our new home."
