Ricky Gervais to host Golden Globes again

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Ricky Gervais will host NBC’s telecast of the Golden Globes for the second consecutive year.

The Emmy-winning comedian and co-creator of “The Office,” “Extras” and “The Ricky Gervais Show” will host the 68th annual Golden Globes on January 16.

“I can’t believe they invited me back after awful things I said,” Gervais said in a statement. “Let’s see how far I can go this time.”

Ratings for this year’s telecast hosted by Gervais were up 12 percent from the previous year (17 million viewers), though critics were mixed on his performance.
