Golden Globes Ratings 2018

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 19 million total viewers and a 5.0 demo rating (per fast finals), down just 5 and 9 percent from last year’s show, which was hosted by Jimmy Fallon.
