Report: Comcast Chides Chelsea Handler for Matt Lauer Poop Jokes

Chelsea Handler has never been one to hold her tongue, but her bosses may be asking her to do just that after the Chelsea Lately host made jokes about Today's Matt Lauer.

After Today's Al Roker admitted to pooping his pants while at the White House, Handler made a joke on her E! late-night show that raised some brows at NBC. "This isn't the first time a Today show cast member was in the news about this sensitive subject. For year, it was common knowledge that Matt Layer spent every morning sh--ing all over Ann Curry."

Al Roker: I pooped in my pants at the White House

The New York Post reports that the brass at Comcast, which owns both NBC and E!, warned the show's writers "to lay off Matt," a source told them. "They don't want them making more fun of Matt and the Ann Curry situation right now." Since Curry's exit from Today, reports surfaced that Lauer was behind her firing.

Still, an E! rep told the Post that no such request was made of the writers.

5 Reasons why the VMAs No Longer Matter

Aug 25 2014 4:16pm CDT | Source: Huffington Post

If video really did kill the radio star, MTV may have in turn killed its own creation: the video. For years, of course, the network has seemingly been video-phobic, devoting nearly all of its time to reality shows, scripted dramas and other programs that beg the question of why the letter "M" still appears in its name. Once a year, though, MTV remembers that videos still exist (even if they air primarily on other cable networks and internet sites) and celeb ...
