Sunday Ratings: Globes Golden for NBC

Sunday evening had a little bit of something for everyone: sports, glamour, action and drama. Unfortunately, this meant mixed results for some network staples. And though the Golden Globes brought NBC its best 18-49 performance for a non-sports event since ER‘s finale, CBS won both the viewers and the demos with its playoff action.

Ricky Gervais Toasts the Golden Globes

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Award Shows, NBC, Gossip,

Ricky GervaisRicky Gervais, the host of this weekend’s , doubts he’ll be asked back again. Therefore, he’ll enjoy the experience while he can.

“I’m going to be drunk. Everyone else is. They’re not going to invite me back, so I might as well have fun,” Gervais claimed. “They can’t censor me, it’s live. That’s the beauty of it. When they first offered me the job, I said, ‘I’m not going to rehearse. Can I say what I want?’ They said, ‘Yes.’ They haven’t seen the script, my ideas, so they can’t censor me. I suppose they could stop the show and replace me.”

Obviously, that’s a staple,” Ricky told Access Hollywood. “Anyone who isn’t concentrating will get it, so they better listen, they better not talk. They can talk when everyone else is on, but they better not talk when I’m on, because then they get my attention and then they’re in trouble.”

Anna Paquin Underwhelmed by Award Nominations

The star - who is up for the Best Actress in a Television Drama honor - admits she’s thrilled to be acknowledged for her work but is happier that she now has the freedom to drive herself about.

“I’m oddly more excited about the driver’s license. I’m totally the two-handed driver, and I’m not very good at parallel parking,” she said.

The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards take place on Sunday, but Anna admits she doesn’t get too excited about attending glittering ceremonies. Paquin - who won the same award year and a Best Supporting Actress Oscar at age 11 - said: “It’s probably not any different than any other day.”
