Ricky GervaisBrit wit Ricky Gervais, who’s on TV almost as much as Everybody Loves Raymond reruns these days, will host the Golden Globes for the second consecutive year, when NBC presents the award-season kickoff on Jan 16. “I can’t believe they invited me back after the awful things I said,” Gervais said in a statement. “Let’s see how far I can go this time.”

Gervais’ casual irreverence helped improve the Globes’ ratings and viewership from the previous year. “As viewers discovered with our last awards telecast, Ricky’s surprising and unpredictable humor is a great fit for the Globes which will continue as a live event across the nation,” said Paul Telegdy, executive vice president of alternative programming at NBC-Universal Media Studios. “He’s a true force of nature with a wicked sense of humor who always keeps everyone on their toes waiting for the unexpected.”

HBO recently approved a second season of Gervais’ namesake animated series.

    Oh wow, I wasn’t expecting this at all. I thought he was funny, and hell, he was even drinking a pint through the whole thing, but I thought he pissed of the networks. I guess not? Good for him, I’ll be watching again. :)
