Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Give Golden Globes Big Ratings Boost

The First Ladies of Comedy killed it at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, if early projections are any indication anyway.

Early ratings show Globes hostesses/Saturday Night Live alums Tina Fey and Amy Poehler brought in a 12% higher audience than fellow sidesplitter Ricky Gervais — who handed over the reigns to the girls after a two year stunt at the helm of the awards show.

No one was off limits when it came to jokes from the femme co-hosts. James Franco, Taylor Swift and even Gervais were all blasted to hilarious perfection by the stellar comedy duo. Our favorite zing came from Amy, who quipped:

“I haven’t been following the controversy surrounding Zero Dark Thirty,” Poehler said referring to nominated director Kathryn Bigelow. “But when it comes to torture, I trust the woman who spent three years married to James Cameron.”

Did you watch Sunday’s show? How do you think Tina and Amy did?
