Golden Globes Viewership, 17m Last Year; What About Tonight?

The 2011 68th Golden Globes airs tonight on NBC. The viewership of the show has held up much better than many similar awards shows, with last year's viewership not too far off the mid-90's when NBC took over the show.

Once again it will face an NFL divisional overrun into primetime, which will almost certainly guarantee CBS the primetime 18-49 win, but NBC should make a strong showing.

What's your guess on tonight's viewership?

Update: Table below updated with 2011 information.
