Ricky Gervais says he won't host the Golden Globes again
Never mind all of the whisperings across Hollywood: "Will the Golden Globes invite Ricky Gervais back after he slammed them so mercilessly Sunday night?"
Globe leaders may be very forgiving considering the socko TV ratings: 17 million viewers tuned in to watch Gervais' second consecutive year at the podium.
Responding to the murmurings, Ricky tells TMZ, "Well, it doesn't really matter because I'm not going to do it anyway. I said I would do it a second time, but I think twice is enough ... I loved it more than last year, actually."
