NEW YORK, N.Y. - Joan Rivers' family says the comedian has been moved from intensive care into a private room, where she is "being kept comfortable."

No further details were released Wednesday on Rivers' condition. On Tuesday, the family confirmed she was on life support at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan after going into cardiac arrest last Thursday.
