Karl’s appearance occurred after American comedian Kathy Griffin said ‘get yourself a Sqautty Potty, and stop being so full of s**t’ while endorsing the product in an advertisement.

He shared his opinion on the product, using a hand gesture and noise as he said: ‘I have used one, they’re very effective.’ 

It appears to be the first time Karl has appeared on Nine since his axing. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Nine for comment.

The network previously confirmed This Time Next Year, fronted by the media personality, will mark the return of Karl to devoted viewers.

‘This Time Next Year has been filmed and will screen later this year on Nine,’ a spokesman told Daily Mail Australia in March.

Karl finished filming the second season of This Time Next Year at Sydney’s Fox Studios in February, but no air-date had been promoted for its return.

Interestingly, Karl was filming during the same time ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn was starring in Ten’s Dancing With The Stars – filmed live at Sydney’s Fox Studios.

Following his axing in December, reports emerged that Karl had been hard at work on his fitness as he attempts to relaunch his TV career.

Two years remain on his contract, but with filming having wrapped for This Time Next Year it is reported he will retain his $2million pay packet having done just ‘one week’s work’.

Karl’s head was one of the first to roll during Nine’s Today show bloodbath late last year, with multiple departures of staff and restructuring of stars to other shows and roles.

The former Today host dropped from the breakfast program during his honeymoon with new wife Jasmine Yarbrough in December.
