The one-time “Saturday Night Live” castmates and long-time pals — who emceed this year’s kudocast to great acclaim and stellar ratings — have inked a deal to preside over the next two ceremonies. (The 71st ceremony takes place on Jan. 12, 2014 and will air live on NBC.)
In making the announcement, HFPA president Theo Kingma said, “It’s wonderful news. They have always been our first choice as hosts and we’re delighted they are back for the next two years.”
The audience for this year’s Globes jumped to 19.7 million from 16.8 when Ricky Gervais hosted for the last of three times in 2012 and earned a 6.4 rating in the 18-49 demo (up 28%).
