NBC’s broadcast of the 2018 Golden Globe Awards drew a big li’l audience.
Hosted by Late Night‘s Seth Meyers and with HBO’s Big Little Lies leading the TV pack (with four total wins), the kudoscast drew a 13.4 rating, 21 share in preliminary numbers, holding steady (currently up 1 percent) compared to last year’s show (13.3/21), which was hosted by Jimmy Fallon.
The Globes won Sunday night in metered-market households, while opening opposite Fox’s high-rated NFC Wild Card overrun.
Last year’s Globes went on to report a total audience of 20 million; this year’s audience numbers will trickle in Monday afternoon, along with the ratings for CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles, Fox’s Ghosted and Sunday night’s other original broadcast programming.
This year’s Globes were up a few percentage points from both the 2016 (13.0/20, hosted by Ricky Gervais) and 2015 (12.6/19, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler) ceremonies.
