    You have to wonder if this is definitely a test to see if a studio audience works for "Kathie Lee & Hoda & Wine" (you have to know mom humor to get the video; I had no issues with it)...personally I love the show and if Megan hasn't worked out, this might be a worthy replacement if it works to take on Live! (which has become somnolent with Seacrest in the other seat).

    To me, this seems smart. Give Kathie Lee and Hoda the live audience, and reposition Megyn's show as a newsmagazine with no audience.

    Megyn Kelly Today never seemed to work out. To me, when I first started watching Kathie Lee and Hoda I thought that there was a live audience. So this already feels natural. With Megyn, she is the type of journalist that sadly belongs on MSNBC or NBC News’ Meet The Press. Now don’t get me wrong. Sunday Night W/ Megyn Kelly is a great show! I just feel that if that was in a time slot every Sunday night and not during the summer only, I believe that they can actually compete with 60 Minutes.

    Over at ABC on GMA I hadn't watched in awhile, but I turn to GMA, and the audience is in the studio sitting at tables....The background looked glittery & over the top...It like the morning news was being done in nightclub...Have you seen this? Thoughts?????

    Speaking of Sunday Night, is there any word from NBC on that show coming back after the Olympics as Megyn promised? If so, it'll need a lot of retooling and possibly a new time slot, maybe 10/9 central.

    I’m sorry but Megyn Kelly and KLG & Hoda have to be canned!!!! The ratings are dwindling down badly.

    Maybe giving NBC affiliates different syndicated shows at the request of local affiliates? I haven't a clue what is going on at 30 Rock!

    So WBAL’s in NYC. If you look in the production monitor you may see video walls in the monitor.

    So much curviness in that big new shiny video wall of theirs. Just finished seeing Al Roker utilize it for the weather forecast.

    What did they get rid of to put in the video wall?
    Update: it appears they got rid of a Today show mainstay, the couches.

    I bet when they need the couch it will be rolled out and placed in front of the wall

    I love that they kept the window and the movable monitors. That corner is so cool. I’ve been at school all morning, did they update the orange room or anything else?
