After 19.7 million viewers tuned in to watch Amy and Tina “turn it up” at the 2013 Golden Globes (a six year ratings high), the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and producer Dick Clark Productions knew they had found their “golden egg.”
Or, in this case, “golden eggs.”
Paul Telegdy, NBC President of Alternative and Late Night Programming, said of the returning host duo:
“Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business. They were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season. We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.”
The deal ends speculation that the two might host the Oscars in 2015 — not that Tina would have been looking forward to that particular gig.
“I think the Oscars is just such a bigger task,” the 30 Rock alum told The Hollywood Reporter during last year’s Globes prep, “to sing and dance and do the pre-taped segments and all that stuff.”
