I believe this is a market by market problem. In my experience The Today Show on NBC records as 3 different recordings in the morning, yet in other markets it records as 1 recording both totaling 4 hours.

Today show would definitely be something that varies by market. Some markets don't show the last hour drunk fest, errr Hoda and Kathy Lee segment.

I note that last night, NBC showed two episodes of "Parks and Recreation" in a one-hour block, with no closing credits at the end of the first episode or opening titles at the beginning of the second episode. Most sources did list it as a one-hour program, but DirecTV's listings had it as two separate episodes. I suspect DirecTV did some "massaging" of the data they got from Tribune.
trainman is Jim Ellwanger
