Despite ABC Breakfast winning the breakfast TV ratings war for now, the Today Show duo are most likely unfased.
Back in February, Allison told Sunday Life that she and Karl are ignoring negative reviews and are focusing on making the Nine morning show as “fun” as possible for viewers.
“[Karl] is the first to admit he'd fallen out of love with morning TV and that's the one thing we agree on - it has to be fun," the TV journalist told the publication.
“He's come back with a renewed passion and the Karl I'm seeing now is positive and engaged. I adore working with him. All we can do is make sure we're putting together the best show we can each morning.”
Karl and wife Jasmine recently welcomed their daughter Harper and shortly after the birth, Karl made an on-air confession about new dad life.
"I know they call it the bubble in the first couple of weeks but Harper may the bubble continue," he said of his "gorgeous" daughter, adding that she's "2.9 kilos of just scrumptious delight."
"She's sleeping ok, three hours on, three hours off. Jasmine has just taken it in her stride, she is feeding really well. It makes me cry already."
