Will Ricky Gervais make the Globes worth watching again?

The Hollywood Foreign Press has made a wise choice in Ricky Gervais to host the Golden Globes - for a third time. The British comedian is promising to pull no punches as he roasts Hollywood's finest, on live TV. If last year's performance is anything to go by, he will not disappoint. Despite giving the impression of being oh so shocked and insulted, the Globes top brass know they have to deliver a show that will get people talking and start Facebook-worthy buzz. Bums on couches and the advertising bottom line are all this show is about. Oh and then there are the awards. Ho hum. That's what the Oscars are for.
