Why Ricky Gervais Is Returning to the Globes: It's All About Ratings, Baby

Whenever people complain about all the bad programming on TV, I like to remind them that television is one of the few true democracies. We vote with our eyes, and the amount of time we spend parked on the couch. The things we watch get renewed and the things we don't watch get canceled.

The controversial show also made a huge impact on Twitter, where for 34 hours Golden-Globes-related hash tags were in the top 10.

His presence at the awards pretty well ensures that there will be at least a handful of hilarious/cringeworthy moments in the telecast, which thereby will drive ratings, which will make everyone, save perhaps a few thin-skinned movie stars, happy. Gervais alluded to his take-no-prisoners approach on Twitter Wednesday, posting a picture of himself with Oscar host Billy Crystal with the text, "Just told Billy Crystal he'd better not use any of...
