Entertainment The Today show smashes Sunrise in extraordinary ratings comeback
Natalie Barr isn't a fan of the cut out dress
Sunrise host Natalie Barr has made her disdain for the cutout dress fashion trend, and her stance is pretty valid considering the look isn't for everyone. However, we have found some pretty alternatives that won't leave random parts of your body exposed. It's lucky that fashion trends come and go because sometimes we are stuck with some disappointing takes on otherwise perfectly good clothes. Sunrise host Natalie Barr has taken to her Instagram to slam cutout dresses for being impractical and unnecessary.
The Today show has soared ahead of Sunrise in the breakfast TV ratings in a spectacular turnaround after dropping to third place earlier this week.
Today, hosted by Allison Langdon and, had dipped below 200,000 metro viewers on Tuesday, falling behind Seven's Sunrise and ABC News Breakfast.
But it turns out this was just a bump in the road because the Nine program blitzed the competition on Wednesday with a five-city audience of 236,000.
It beat Sunrise, which had 228,000 metro viewers, and ABC News Breakfast, which had a combined audience of 205,000 across ABC and ABC News.

Today also secured a strong regional audience of 109,000, bringing its total national figure to 346,000, and helping Nine win the day in all key demos and total people.
These numbers will no doubt please Nine executives, who recently offered Langdon and Stefanovic one-year contract extensions worth $1.8million each.
Today's resurgence comes afteron Tuesday, drawing just 193,000 viewers in the five-city metro market.
Sunrise, hosted by Natalie Barr and David 'Kochie' Koch, won easily with 244,000 metro viewers, followed by ABC News Breakfast, which drew an impressive 201,000.

The Bachelorette still struggles in the ratings, but doing better
Thursday's episode of The Bachelorette had 314,000 metro viewers, which, while still pitifully low, was a step up from Wednesday's abysmal 253,000But there may be a glimmer of hope for the Channel 10 dating show, which bounced back from the record-low numbers to finish slightly higher on Thursday.
The 61-year-old veteran TV host left the network after trying and failing to achieve pay parity with Stefanovic.
She has revisited the saga in her new autobiography, It Wasn't Meant to Be Like This, in which she alleges Stefanovic convinced her to approach the network for more money, explaining that if they weren't given pay parity, they'd both quit.
She later discovered Stefanovic had signed a $2million deal with Nine amid rumours he was planning to move across to Channel Seven.
'He had played both networks off against each other brilliantly and in full public view. There was no doubt about it: Karl certainly knew the art of the deal,' she wrote in a book excerpt published by.
According to Woman's Day, however, Stefanovic has learnt from his past mistakes and now realises 'his secret weapon to survival on the show is Ally'.
