Karl Stefanovic is taking a short break from TV. Is there really a problem with that?

  Karl Stefanovic is taking a short break from TV. Is there really a problem with that? Four months on from his last break, 'Today' host Karl Stefanovic has taken a week of annual leave. And apparently, it's not for the reasons that most of us take leave. Announcing the break via a social media post on Sunday evening, Stefanovic’s fill-in Ben Fordham announced, “I said goodbye to The Today Show a few years ago but I’m returning this week to fill in for Karl Stefanovic who is taking a well earned rest.”Cue, conspiracy theories.“A rest from what?” one Facebook user commented on the post incredulously."Hasn't he just come back from extended Christmas break," another asked."Will be great to see you back.

Sunrise host David Koch has told an excited viewer to ' get stuffed ' after she said the wrong catchphrase during the show's cash giveaway segment. On Wednesday, the Seven Network presenters were waiting for a listener to simply pick up the call in order to win ,000 on Cash Cow.

“Well get stuffed Lynette it’s Sunrise here.” She took away the ,000 and assured the Sunrise hosts , “I will stick with you now.” Talk about some great entertainment right there. We guess it’s only a matter of time till it happens again…

Sunrise host David Koch has told a viewer to "get stuffed" after she answered a cash giveaway call with a catchphrase from rival program the TODAY Show.

The Network Seven program was giving away $30,000 on its regular Cash Cow segment this morning when viewer Denise answered the call with "I wake up with TODAY".

The line is needed by viewers of the rival Channel 9 show TODAY to win its own Block of Cash segment.

"For god's sake, who cares," Koch raged to the laughter of his co-hosts.

"We're going to change the terms and conditions.”

Colleague Mark Beretta joked it was "good to have a bet each way" but Koch was having none of it.

"Get stuffed, Denise," Koch said.

"We don’t give a toss about a bunch of losers."

The rival programs have been engaged in a fierce ratings battle in the ultra-competitive breakfast television market.

It is understood the caller Denise was still awarded the cash.

It is not the first time a caller has answered the Sunrise call with the TODAY catchphrase, with it happening twice last year. 

Who doesn’t love a wedding to boost ratings? .
Seven is hoping Edwina Bartholomew's upcoming wedding will be a ratings bonanza.In the never-ending game of breakfast TV oneupmanship, Sunrise has managed to score a cast engagement, less than a month after rival Today won a much-needed boost in the ratings with coverage of newsreader Sylvia Jeffreys’ wedding.
