The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards took place last night and it was definitely a memorable evening. The event was hosted by funny ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who took the reins from Ricky Gervais who hosted the show for the last 3 years. There were so many great moments from the opening with Fey and Poehler where they made fun of Kathryn Bigalow, Anne Hathaway and various others, to Jodie Foster’s speech as she accepted the Cecil B. Demille Award. There were also some awards given. Most were pretty predictable but others (Girls winning for Best Comedy) were completely surprising. Here are the list winners.

TV Stuff (Cougar Town, Downton Abbey and More)


Boss Cancelled By Starz – The drama lead by Kelsey Grammer has been cancelled. It recently ended its second season recently and will be not coming back for a third season. “After much deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to not proceed with ‘Boss. We remain proud of this award-winning show, its exceptional cast and writers, and are grateful to Kelsey Grammer, (series creator) Farhad Safinia and our partners at Lionsgate TV,” said the network. The show was a generally liked by critics  but not so much with audiences. It did bring Kelsey Grammer a Golden Globe award. It’s a little surprising that they cancelled the show  since they renewed the show for a second season before the numbers were in for the first season.

Dirty Jobs Cancelled – Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs has been cancelled. This is the second big cancellation from the network after American Chopper was cancelled last week. The show ended its eighth and last season in September.

Chevy Chase leaving Community – The actor has had a pretty rocky relationship with the show. There was the much publicized feud with series creator, Dan Harmon, production being interrupted because Chase was not happy with what was being shot and his use of the N-word on set when he was making a point about where his racist character was headed. Most of Community’s 4th and possibly last season has already been shot with 2 episodes left. Chase will be in all except the final 2. Community premieres this coming mid-season on February 7th, 2013 on NBC.

New Promos for Smash and Cougar TownSmash and Cougar Town return at the beginning of next year and they just released some new promos. Looking forward to an Ellis-less Smash and all the drama that comes with this show. Also looking forward to the wine drinking cul-de-sac crew on Cougar Town.

Cougar Town returns on its new home, TBS, on January 8th, 2013.

Smash returns to NBC on February 5th, 2013.

Downton Abbey Renewed – Downton Abbey will be back for a fourth season. Season 3 just finished airing in the UK and will premiere in the States January 6th, 2013 on PBS.  PBS will air a recap of season 2 and a preview of the upcoming season 3 on Sunday, November 25th at 8/7c.
