The 2023 Golden Globe Awards ceremony on NBC received the lowest ratings in the history of the network.
Despite drawing over 6.3 million viewers, the 2023 Golden Globe awards ceremony received the lowest NBC rating in history of the network.
The 80th annual event was held January 10 and boasted historic wins that included Angela Bassett, ‘Abbott Elementary,’ among others featuring many memorable moments.
After taking the award show off the airwaves in 2022 due to backlash, the 2023 edition returned this week without the expected bang.
According to an entertainment website, ThatGrapeJuice, despite securing a viewership of 6.3 million, the ‘Globes’ finished the rating race as the night’s second most-watched program – falling behind CBS’ hit series, ‘FBI‘ (which garnered an audience of 7.4 million).
The 2023 Golden Globe awards ceremony had the lowest viewership ever, with only a third of the audience size compared to the 18.3 million viewers in 2020.
It’s worth noting that the above viewership numbers do not include reports from Peacock or other digital platforms where the show aired.
However, it is unlikely that the viewership numbers from these platforms will make a significant impact on the final figures.
