Joan Rivers' "Fashion Police" off next 2 weeks in wake of hospitalization

UPDATE: Joan Rivers has died at the age of 81.

Joan Rivers' weekly "Fashion Police" series is going on hiatus in the wake of her hospitalization, the E! network said Thursday.

The long-running program, which normally airs fresh episodes on Fridays, is on break this week and next, the network announced, "as we await Joan and Melissa's return in front and behind the camera." Rivers' daughter, Melissa Rivers, is its executive producer.

In its place, the network plans to air two special programs focusing on New York Fashion Week.

On Wednesday, Rivers' family said the 81-year-old comedian and red-carpet commentator was moved from intensive care into a private room at Manhattan's Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was "being kept comfortable."

Her daughter also thanked the public for their continued support.

Rivers was admitted to the hospital Thursday after going into cardiac arrest at a doctor's office.

Her "Fashion Police" co-hosts Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos are among those who have taken to social media to wish her well:
