Ratings: Golden Globes Dip a Bit vs. 2018, Leading Out of Huge NFL Game

January 8, 2019

NBC’s broadcast of the 2019 Golden Globes was down in the ratings from last year, but suffered less steep a decline than other awards shows.

Reporting a 12.7 rating/21 share in households in the 55 markets metered by Nielsen, the Globes are down just 5 percent in the very preliminary numbers, as compared to the double drops sustained by the most recent Oscars (down 16 percent), Grammys (down 20 percent) and Emmys (down 10 percent). That said, that 12.7 marks a four-year low (since 2015’s Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted 12.6).

TVLine readers gave this year’s hosts, Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, an average grade of “C.”

Last year’s Globes went on to report a total audience of 19 million viewers (which marked a two-year low) and a 5.0 demo rating (a six-year low). Check back later for updates on the audience and demo rating for Sunday’s telecast, as well as numbers for God Friended Me, Fox’s cartoons and such.

Leading into the Globes, NBC Sports’ broadcast of the Eagles/Bears NFC Wild Card Playoff game delivered the highest metered-market rating (22.9) for any telecast since Super Bowl LII (Feb. 4, on NBC), and was up 12 percent from the comparable match-up last year (20.4 for Panthers/Saints on Fox).
