Chatting with Billy V: January 18, 2011

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Host Ricky Gervais may have turned off the critics at Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards, but viewers seemed turned on, with just under 17 million viewers, up from 2010; and last year's ceremony was up 14 percent from 2009.  But did he go too far?   "This year, I went about right. If anyone was offended, then I don't care."

Hugh Hefner said on Twitter "The Golden Globes was a blast. They made fun of everyone, including Crystal & me. A great night. I'm used to cheap shots. It goes with the territory. It's ironic that living with 3 young girls prompted a hit TV show, but marrying one prompts humor."
