News broke today that should give fans of “Days of Our Lives” (Days) hope that the NBC sudser is safe from the upcoming arrival of Megyn Kelly’s news show.
No More Tomorrow for the Third Hour of Today
Kelly’s show, which is still in development, will occupy the time slot currently home to the hour of “Today” hosted by Tamron Hall and Al Roker, reported tvline.com.
“We’re told Kelly will take over either the 9 a.m. hour from Tamron Hall and Al Roker or will replace Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford,” tvline.com quoted Page Six as saying, according to an unnamed insider.
“Everybody assumed that she would kill that show,” he said. “And that’s a bad assumption. It’s still too early to know where she’s going to be in daytime. And we have a lot of news hours in daytime, so there’s some flexibility,” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt.
