Comcast's (CMCSA) NBCUniversal unit is reportedly cutting 450-500 jobs, or 1.5% of its 30,000 staff, at cable channels, Jay Leno's late-night TV show and at Universal Pictures. A significant proportion of the layoffs have come at NBCUniversal's G4 cable channel for young male viewers. The staff reductions come as TV networks suffer a slowdown in advertising.
