NBC has been running several week-old episodes of Leno and Conan in
the late night for quite a few years now. It's probably not making
much money for the network or the affiliates, but at least it's not
losing money like the previous all-night newscasts. ABC seems to
have that time period wrapped up for news, there simply isn't a
market for more than one overnight newscast.
If Bob has a better idea for how to make money with original
programming in the overnight period, I suggest that he present his
proposal to NBC's programming department.
And yes, the 4:30 AM "Early Today" newscast on NBC comes directly
from MSNBC. So what!
