    Tina & Amy were hilarious, along with Kristen & Will, but where were the hosts? I bet they had maybe 20 minutes screen time total. Cut down the number of boring presenters and speeches and let the hosts, host!

  • Oliver

    Huge ratings increase. Great choice of hosts by NBC.

    Hopefully this translates into a ratings boost for Parks.

  • silvit

    They should have given Amy and Tina more screentime. They got better as the show went on.

  • Luke

    There definitely should have been more screen time for the hosts, especially Amy. 30 Rock is ending, but Parks and Rec could have used some ad spots, too.

  • Andies

    Tina and Amy were great but I wish they did more jokes… I was rolling when the girl that won an award for the show girls said she admire Tna and Amy when she was in middle school.. Tina face was hilarious…

  • USAmerica1st

    Great, fun show! Tina and Amy were hilarious, but the GGs sacrifice host time to give the stars more time to speak. At the Oscars, the orchestra music would have cut Jody Foster off half way thru her speech. Plus they had a better list of nominees than the Oscars and covered more categories.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Maybe this appereance of them could boost the numbers of Parks and 30 Rock as well.

  • Networkman

    I feel the Golden Globes try and reward those shows they consider groundbreaking or edgy. But is Girls really the best comedy on TV now?

    Also there was way too much attention on Ben Afflack. People singing his praise because he did not get a nomination for Oscar. Ben will be just fine with his millions of dollars. Also his film is still nominated for Best Picture. I feel at times this show gets really self indulgent. I feelthe reason both Kathryn and Ben did not get nominated for Oscars is because there is alot of controversies surrounding their films. Could there be too many inaccuracies throughout the films? What I do know is that Ben is well known and if he continues his craft, he will most likely garner a nomination in the near future. Whearas there are some directors that will never be accepted and receive recognition for their work.

    It’s the top-rated “Golden Globes” in six years in both 18-49 and total viewers (since Monday, January 15, 2007, 6.5/15 in 18-49, 20.0 million viewers overall)

    That’s the ceremony where Grey’s Anatomy won the award for Best Drama Series!

  • Justin121

    That’s what bugs me about the Globes:

    So did Grey’s Anatomy win for it second or third season?

    You never know…
