Ricky Gervais is getting another crack at hosting the Golden Globes.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. announced on Wednesday that Gervais would return for a second year to host the ceremony, which will take place Jan. 16 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and be broadcast on NBC.
In a statement, the comedian said, "I can't believe they invited me back after awful things I said. Let's see how far I can go this time."
Despite mixed reviews on his performance, the Gervais-hosted Globes in January delivered a big audience for NBC, with 17 million people watching. That was a 12% rise in viewership over last year.
