‘Nine were happy to cash in on your ratings by showing off your tacky weddings and fired Karl for having one’: Mortified Stefanovic savagely roasted by Tom Gleeson at the Logies who pokes fun at his sacking
The 61st annual Logie Awards kicked off on the Gold Coast on Sunday night.
Gold Logie nominee Tom Gleeson opened the ceremony with a hilarious monologue that saw the comedian roast Channel Ten, Married At First Sight, and Karl Stefanovic.
‘I think the reason they (the Logies) ask you to do the opening is because Channel 9 has run out of stars,’ he said.

‘They don’t have any left. They have new rule on breakfast too TV, if you are too entertaining they fire you. Am I right Karl. Is Karl here. Where is Karl?’
Just moments later he took another swipe at Karl, this time by roasting his ‘tacky wedding’ to Jasmine Yarbrough.
‘Congratulations to Married At First Sight by the way for their monster ratings. Give them a huge round of applause,’ Tom said.
