Embattled O'Reilly takes his longest spring break in years

"I grab some vacation because it's spring and Easter time", he said.

O'Reilly has been under fire recently, after it was recently revealed he and his emplyer, Fox News, have settled sexual harassment and/or verbal abuse claims against him over the years from at least six women.

Others argue this defense is less than compelling, given the fact that O'Reilly was by no means the only - or the most powerful - figure at the network to be hit with sexual harassment complaints. O'Reilly announced Tuesday he was taking a "vacation" that he said was planned last fall before the Times story.

On Friday, the show included just seven spots totaling 4 minutes and 40 seconds, leaving free airtime Fox News has filled with extra content on O'Reilly's show. O'Reilly has denied all of the accusations.

O'Reilly is expected to return to his show on April 24. O'Reilly settled the lawsuits privately, without the help of Fox News's parent company 21st Century Fox or its team of lawyers.

Although Rupert Murdoch acceded to Ailes' departure, he has shown a resistance to wholesale change at Fox News. O'Reilly this year has seen the biggest ratings of his career. The company declined to comment Wednesday.

High-end German auto manufacturer Mercedes-Benz, who has spent an estimated $1.9 million on ads on "The O'Reilly Factor" in the previous year, said that "given the importance of women in every aspect of our business, we don't feel this is a good environment in which to advertise our products right now".
