60 Minutes boss 'shelves Karl Stefanovic's interviews'

Karl Stefanovic branded 60 Minutes 'out of touch' during a 'b****y' recorded Uber phonecall with his brother Peter about their Network Nine colleagues last month.

And 60 Minutes boss Kirsty Thomson has now reportedly shelved many of Karl's interviews for the current affairs program in response to his explosive comments.

Thomson wants to dump the presenter from her show but is contractually required to give him a certain number of hours of screen time, sources have claimed.

'Kristy is not happy. She really feels thrown under the bus by Karl. She doesn't want him to be part of her show,' an insider told The Daily Telegraph's Confidential. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted representatives for Peter, Karl and 60 Minutes for comment. 

Karl blasted 60 Minutes in a conversation with Peter last month, according to the Uber driver. 

'60 Minutes is not what it was a couple of years ago - it has lost relevance and lost viewers,' he reportedly said.

'It's often on at 8.45pm - you draw your own conclusion on how it is going. The people upstairs don't know anything and are out of touch with what's going on.'

Kirsty has reportedly equally insulted by Peter and has allegedly rejected more than half a dozen of his story ideas for her show this year.

Neither of the brothers were featured on Sunday evening's episode of 60 Minutes. 

Meanwhile, Karl was slammed after he called Kylie Minogue a 'hot 50-year-old' and told her to stop dating 'good-looking d**kheads' in a bizarre recent interview
