imdb.com claims that those episodes were filmed at CBS Studio 31 and KTLA Studios. [1] That particular "After Hours" episode's small stage size suggests that KTLA's seemingly smaller studios may fit best, but you never know. Note.

It looks like military surplus to me. It reminds me of the display used to tune a receiver for RTTY around the Korean war. There is some industrial video equipment, a bunch of cheap AM/FM receivers and some industrial electronics. Probably $100 of stuff from a surplus store when that set was built. I didn't see anything that was powered up, and the layout made zero sense. A pair of 9" Monochrome video monitors, mounted that high? I remember running this crappy show on 16mm film at the AFRTS TV Station at Ft. Greely. in ''73-'74.

The RTTY tuning indicator is just a x-y oscilloscope with mark filter output on one axis and space filter output on the other one. -- -TV
