Ricky Gervais to host Golden Globes in 2011

Ricky Gervais has signed on to host next year's Golden Globe Awards, scheduled for January 16, 2011, NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Wednesday. It'll mark the second time the actor will take center stage for the annual show, following his gig for this year's honors.

“I can’t believe they invited me back after awful things I said,” Gervais said in a statement. “Let’s see how far I can go this time.”

“We are thrilled to have Ricky back as the host of the Golden Globe Awards,” HFPA President Philip Berk added in the release. “His combination of wit, irreverence, and spontaneity makes him the ideal host. He was fantastic last year, and he'll be even better the second time around."

Gervais led last year's Golden Globes telecast to its highest adults 18-to-49 rating in the time period in five years, and the show was watched by 17 million viewers overall. He is a producer for "The Office" and wrote, starred in and directed "The Invention of Lying" last year.

Country theme will continue on 'Idol'

Country-tinged sounds will continue their appearance on “American Idol” on Wednesday night.

Rascal Flatts and Lady Antebellum are scheduled to perform, along with Shakira. Yeah, I’m not sure how Shakira fits into that either, but just roll with it. The elimination night will be an extension of “Shania Twain week,” in which the Top 6 tackled the songs of the pop-country princess.

Watch a discussion of which "Idol" contestants did Twain proud:

Is Steve Carell planning to exit 'The Office'?

Judging by an interview Steve Carell gave BBC radio while promoting his movie “Date Night,” Carell's run on “The Office” may be coming to an end.

Carell said his contract only runs through next season, the show's seventh. When the interviewer asked if he planned to stay on after that, Carell said “I don’t think so. I think that will probably be my last year.”

Carell’s film career, on the other hand, shows no signs of slowing down. “Date Night,” his action comedy with Tina Fey, has performed fairly at the box office, and he’ll have two films out this summer: the animated feature “Despicable Me” and a comedy co-starring Paul Rudd, “Dinner for Schmucks.”

Would you still watch "The Office" without Michael Scott?

I usually reserve my tears for “American Idol” (yes, this season has been that bad), but Tuesday night “Glee” had me bawling.

There was so much emotion packed into the hour, along with the usual hilarious one liners.

From Finn’s distress over his mom moving on years after the death of his dad to Mercedes’ battle with her self image, it was all pretty moving.
