Nine has been denying for months that Karl Stefanovic would make the leap from morning television to primetime.
Tomorrow night Nine has another Sunday night edition of A Current Affair with Karl in the host chair.
It follows a Sunday edition last week which Nine says was a Pilot idea (what’s to Pilot it’s the same show on a different night?).
The episode will feature an interview with Year 10 student Casey who fought back in a case of schoolyard bullying.
Stefanovic, who also files stories for 60 Minutes, has previously hosted ACA although Leila McKinnon is considered the deputy to Tracy Grimshaw.
There’s little doubt that the Sunday edition is in response to Sunday Night on Seven, co-hosted by another former ACA host.
Meanwhile, are Nine still maintaining Karl is staying put?
