Ricky Gervais to host Golden Globes again

British funny-man Ricky Gervais will host the Golden Globes for the second time in two years.

Gervais has signed on for hosting duties once again of the 68th Annual Golden Globes, with NBC claiming viewership was up 12% due to the comedian’s performance at the awards show this 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, president of alternative at NBC.

“He’s a true force of nature with a wicked sense of humor who always keeps everyone on their toes waiting for the unexpected.”

The Office star will host the ceremony on January 16, 2011.
