Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Ricky.
The Globes are going in a different and more sober direction this upcoming January. Comedic geniuses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been tapped as co-hosts. Fey and Poehler are veterans of this type of arena. Both funny ladies cut their teeth in the notoriously tough and male-dominated "Saturday Night Live" environment, a culture they both helped change, along with decades of trailblazing women before them.
Expect a sharp, witty show with subtle and refreshingly few zingers. There is little doubt they will be able to pack an iron ﬁst in a velvet glove when needed. The change comes just in time. The Globes was turning into Thanksgiving dinner with our bitter, drunk Uncle Ricky serving up the snide vitriol. What the producers were slow to learn is that when in need of a host itʼs always smart to have someone who is friendly, smart, gracious and maybe throw in a little quirky to boot. Luckily, we are going to get that times two this January.
