Then again, we hear insomniacs are huge fans of Kathie Lee!

NBC has announced they have canceled their Poker After Dark program due to the accusations against the show's sponsor of defrauding customers. Filling the void will be two familiar faces from earlier in the day: Hoda and Kathie Lee.

Rather than find - or create - a new show to fill the 2 A.M. slot, the suits have decided to repeat the ladies Today Show segment from the previous morning.

Make it a double? That's their favorite phrase!

For those of you who are keeping count, that's a total of FIVE hours every day on NBC of The Today Show. The program now makes up fully 20 percent of NBC's weekday schedule.

Guess they could air worse things … although, they could air better things too.

Hey Joel McHale! How does 2 A.M. sound to you???
