MTV Networks is expected to announced as early as Tuesday that Jeff Lucas, president of ad sales for NBC Universal Cable Entertainment is moving to Comedy Central as head of ad sales. Mr. Lucas will be reunited with Comedy Central President Doug Herzog, who was president of USA Network when Mr. Lucas joined Vivendi-Universal, which owned USA at the time. Mr. Lucas worked at NBC before moving to Universal and was welcomed back into the NBC fold when NBC acquired the cable assets of Vivendi-Universal.

MTV Networks is holding its upfront presentation tonight at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York.
