- Ted Harbert
Edward "Ted" Harbert (born
June 15, 1955in New York City, New York) is the current president and CEO of the Comcast Entertainment Group.
For several years in the 1990s, Harbert was in charge of programming for "ABC. " He also worked in the same office building as
Jay Lenoduring the mid-90's.
He held a similar position for "
E!" Entertainment Television and Style Networkuntil mid-October 2006, when he got promoted to the newly created position of CEO at the Comcast Entertainment Group, which added Comcast’s G4 TVto his portfolio.
In his position at ABC, he was a lightning rod for such decisions as the cancellation of "
My So-Called Life" among other critically acclaimed series. In the case of "My So-Called Life", he insists, in a September, 2004 " Entertainment Weekly" article [http://www.ew.com/ew/report/0,6115,692296-4-5_3||233618|1_,00.html] , that he very much wanted to renew it despite its low ratings, but he says that behind the scenes maneuvering by series star Claire Danesmade such a decision impossible.
Harbert appeared as himself in an episode of
Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Harbert was once married to Julie Harmon Herbert, former associate director of programming of "
OnTV" in Los Angeles. Harbert currently lives with comedienne and talk show host Chelsea Handler, who hosts the " E!" cable channel talk/comedy show " Chelsea Lately". The couple began dating when Harbert asked Handler out for a drink at a wrap party for her show.
