Comedian Joan Rivers Hospitalized

Joan Rivers is in a New York City hospital, one day after going into cardiac arrest at a doctor's office.  

Melissa Rivers said in a statement Thursday that her mother was resting comfortably. She did not elaborate on the 81-year-old comedian's condition. She offered thanks for an outpouring of ``love and support'' and asked for continuing thoughts and prayers.  

The Mount Sinai Hospital said it had no updates on Friday morning. On Thursday, hospital spokesman Sid Dinsay (DIHN'-say) confirmed that Rivers had been taken there in the morning.  

The entertainer has logged a half-century in show business and is known for often-snarky red carpet commentary.  

A show she had scheduled Friday at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey, has been postponed.
