Megyn Kelly Today (https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt7406344/?ref_=nm_filmo_self_2) is actually the 3rd hour of the Today Show. NBC folded Megyn Kelly's new show into the "Today" (https://www.today.com/) brand, hence the name. If you click on watch episodes button, note the top where it says "watch full episodes of Today here, now including the 9AM and 10AM segments (3rd and 4th hours) scrolling down you see links to all four hours of "Today". This page cycles back and forth between the first two hour's co-anchors and Megyn Kelly, if you look at the orange banner it says Today.com, Megyn Kelly (this position until last Friday Sept 22,2017 was called Today's Take) and KLG & Hoda. Up until a few weeks ago the powers that be at NBC/Universal were debating on whether to include Megyn Kelly's new show under the "Today" brand or run it as a stand alone. I was using 3rd Hour Co-Anchor instead of Today's Take Co-Anchor or "Megyn Kelly Today Co-Anchor, as if you live in an area where the show doesn't air Today's Take might not mean anything, and some markets don't air them at those times. I'm perfectly willing to change how I enter the data for the 3rd hour to "Megyn Kelly Today Co-Anchor, if you guys decide that is how you would like it entered, fixing Today's Take will take a bit of work as that incarnation of the 3rd hour started in 2015. I'll let you guys decide as to where I add the Megyn Kelly Today data.

Hi Lance,

Thank you for bearing with us whilst we investigated this question. We are going to leave the Megyn Kelly Today show as a stand alone TV series on IMDb, its shown on the TV guide as a separate listing and we believe its distinct enough to warrant its own IMDb listing. This will also reduce confusion with separate crew potentially working on this compared the Today show.

In terms of Today's Take which was in this slot, we would suggest leaving this as it is. It doesn't appear to have been advertised as an independent show, and so it feels like more of a segment than the replacement is. I appreciated this has the potential to be a grey area though.

All the best,
Marv
