The skinny: Comcast-owned cabler obviously thinks its flagship net is headed in the right direction, since it promoted E! boss Ted Harbert to a newly expanded role as head of the Comcast Entertainment Group. Harbert’s big get last year was hiring the omnipresent Ryan Seacrest to host “E! News Daily” and the net’s red carpet coverage. Move paid off with higher ratings for both as E! capitalized on America’s growing appetite for celeb scandal. On the reality front, “Girls Next Door” did great, while “High Maintenance 90210” was less successful. E! also launched “The Daily 10,” a companion for “E! News.”
