Ricky Gervais

Break out your pint glass, because Ricky Gervais will return to host next year's Golden Globes.

HBO renews The Ricky Gervais Show

NBC announced Wednesday that the Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner will host the 68th ceremony, which will broadcast live on Jan. 16, 2011.

"I can't believe they invited me back after [the] awful things I said," said Gervais, who brought what looked to be beer onstage while hosting last year's show. "Let's see how far I can go this time." 

NBC programming exec Paul Telegdy said Gervais' unpredictable humor is "a great fit for the Globes."
