USA Network executive Michele Ganeless has returned to Comedy Central under the title of general manager, the network announced Monday. Ms. Ganeless was senior VP of programming at Comedy Central before going to USA Network, where she served as executive VP and general manager. At both networks, Ms. Ganeless worked with Comedy Central’s current President, Doug Herzog.

She will report to Mr. Herzog, as will Lauren Corrao, Comedy Central’s senior VP and head of development. Ms. Ganeless will be based in New York and oversee programming and marketing functions, including co-productions, consumer and trade marketing and advertising, creative services, on-air promotion, acquisitions, audience research, scheduling and new business.

“Michele’s extraordinary credentials and experience in all aspects of television make her ideally suited for the challenge of further building and solidifying our brand,” Mr. Herzog said.
