Most syndicated talk shows start off with a 2 year contract anyway, so this is nothing new.

Well, there go all the 1:05AM KLG & Hoda Today Show repeats for a year or two. My lousy affiliate dropped them so they could rerun Meredith at that hour : (

    I doubt anyone cares about either at that time.

    Yeah, Insider, my station runs KLG & Hoda at 11 AM (Live With Kelly And Michael runs at 9 AM, with Today’s Take at 10 AM) and it runs Meredith at 2 PM. I watch neither.

    Many NBC stations repeat it overnight for a second time, which is what Black Squirrel is referring to (1:05AM and the word REPEATS should have given it away). i was responding to his post that overnight, i doubt anyone cared. During the day, it clearly has viewers.

Uh, Insider, the reason I want the Today repeats back on at 1:05 AM is because sometimes the 10 AM first-runs get interrupted for breaking news either by NBC or my local station, and the late night repeats gave me a chance to see what I missed earlier.

    Well, we found the one person who cares.
