NBC keeps “Days” but dumps “Today”


Fans of “Days of Our Lives” can breathe a sigh of relief for now.  NBC has cut the third hour from “Today” to make room for Megan Kelly’s new show.  They don’t know if Kelly will replace Tamron Hall and Al Roker or Kathie Lee and Hoda.  One will go when Kelly debuts in September.

“Days”, however, is not out the woods yet.  Their renewal is in September and things could still change.  It would be awkward for the show if it were cancelled since they recently hired ex-“One Life To Live”/”General Hospital” head writer Ron Carlivati as its new head writer, whose material isn’t slated to start airing until September.
