(Newser) – CNN may not be asking Kathy Griffin to host another New Year's Eve special after her ribald reply to a heckler made its way onto live TV, the New York Post reports. "Screw you!" the comedian, who says she thought she was off-air at the time, yelled at the razzer. "Why don't you get a job buddy? You know what, I don't go to your job and knock the d--- out of your mouth." The network has apologized.
