Isn't Sheinelle also the co-anchor of Saturday Today?
Speaking of the 9 o'clock hour, they redesigned the shop's logo, bringing the font in-line with the rest of the show, though with a different color scheme.
Apologizing in advance for terrible quality of these screenshots...
A sneak peak inside studio 6A, home of Megyn Kelly Today:
Screengrabs from an ad that aired during NBC Nightly News.
That studio is arguably better than Today's main.
Well-designed, a great mix of white woods and blues, and isn't depressing or clinical in the slightest.
I really like this.
I'm curious if the news crawl will remain up during the show? Since KLG & Hoda doesn't air here does the crawl air during their show.
The crawl does air during KLG and Hoda. It could go either way, but since Megyn's show will be part of Today I feel that they might have the crawl up. We'll see.
Here's the promo I referenced last night:
I was wondering how they will handle it. I know the local news avails are gone but in my mind it doesn't make sense for the ticker to disappear for an hour.
I wonder if they will do something like they did during Rio with the altered graphics using a different "ticker background". The affiliates had nothing to do on their end as the time/temp and crawl remained in the same spot.
Think we will see new gfx for Today come tomorrow???
No, I don't think so, but they need new ones. Tomorrow would be the perfect debut day. Why? Do you know something we don't?
Depends. Was there local time / temp / crawl on Sunday Today? Usually when the network doesn't trigger it at all it's a signal there's changes afloat.
If they wanted to do specialized graphics but keep the ticker they could just go the Rio 2016 route. But from what I've heard it seems like it's going to be it's own show and nothing like current Today that just happens to have Today in the title and logo.
Today could be in the name for contractual reasons with the affiliates or to establish continuity through 11AM.
At the same time it will be interesting in how NBC is setting up the show to be Nielsen rated. I believe the prior block constituted Today but was broken down to three sub segments TODAY or TDY 1 (7-9AM), TODAY 2 (9-10AM) and TODAY 3 (10-11AM).
NBC announced to its stations that 10a is now Today with Kathleen Lee & Hoda and no longer Today 3.
It's been called Today with Kathie Lee and Hoda for years now.
Internally and for programming reasons it has always been TODAY III. Just like TODAY'S TAKE was always TODAY II
I must say, Megyn Kelly Today doesn't feel like Today at all. It feels like an NBCU talk show passing itself off as a network morning show.
In my opinion, the way this show will be successful is if they are able to make it feel like your watching "Today" as well as continue the momentum of the first two hours.
A couple ways to achieve this...
1.)Have Megyn appear on the first two hours and have Today contributors and anchors appear on her show.
2.)Promote and continue segments that will air on Megyn's show during the first two hours. Start a segment on Today and then continue it more in depth on Megyn's show to give people a reason to continue watching.
If they do this I actually think the show will be fine.
Cross-promotion - no sooner said than done. They just did a piece on the entire Today family welcoming her (complete with a toast).
*Because of Live with Kelly and Ryan, we in Orlando still get the 3rd and 4th hours at 10 and 11.
