Here are two great reasons to watch this year's Golden Globes ceremony.

Ding dong the grump is dead! Ricky Gervais has finally been usurped as the Golden Globe host, a job he never liked in the first place. Instead, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be emceeing Hollywood's biggest fake awards show party for its January 13 telecast. This is the greatest thing the Golden Globes has ever done since giving Pia Zadora an acting award.

Tyra Banks can put off looking for a real job for a little longer. The CW has renewed America's Next Top Model for another cycle, this time starring male models alongside the usual roster of underfed, overexcited women.

In other renewal news, Fox has picked up Bob's Burgers for a fourth season of 22 episodes. If they change the name to Five Guys, maybe more people would watch.

Justified has tapped Ron Eldard for a guest stint on the FX's show's fourth season. The ER vet will be playing a military sergeant who has a history with Walter Goggins's Boyd. What, did they used to put on women's clothing and blackmail politicians?

In what sounds like a real-life Episodes storyline, the popular British comedy Gavin & Stacey is being turned into an American sitcom for Fox. The original series creators are even being imported for the remake. Remember guys: If they studio asks you to cast any of the former Friends cast, just say no.

Sounds like Beyoncé will shake off the rest of her baby weight by headlining the next Super Bowl halftime spectacular. Somewhere, Carly Rae Jepsen is cursing herself for believing the NFL when they promised they'd call her... maybe.

Out of the mouths of babes: if she were legally able to vote in the presidential election, diminutive reality show star Honey Boo Boo would vote for President Obama, mainly because Mitt Romney is an avowed Snooki fan. As Honey Boo Boo goes, so goes the nation.
