Comedy Central

Michele Ganeless is the former president of TV network Comedy Central, which she helmed from 2004 to 2016, when she stepped down to become a consultant for the network. Ganeless has seen the prominence of the network grow as many of the network’s most popular series have permeated the zeitgeist. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, South Park and The Colbert Report, and more recent series like Key & Peele, Broad City, @midnight and Inside Amy Schumer dominate the cultural landscape. Keeping Comedy Central at the forefront of the multi-platform age, she has led the roll-out of projects like Comedy Central’s TV Everywhere App, a seamless extension of the brand that gives fans a one-stop destination for access to full episodes of Comedy Central series instantly and anywhere; CC:Stand-Up, an App that offers users a tool to discover new comics and view and share comedic content; and CC:Stand-Up Direct, a direct-to-consumer distribution platform that delivers unlimited streams and downloads of uncut, uncensored stand-up specials.
