“The Golden Globes” returned to NBC last night, after scandals over ethical lapses and the lack of Black members in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association forced the show off the air in 2022. The HFPA underwent reforms enabling the revival of the event, this year hosted by Jerrod Carmichael – and Carmichael didn’t shy away from the elephant in the room. “I’ll tell you why I’m here,” said Carmichael in his opening monologue. “I’m here because I’m Black.” While speeches tended toward heartfelt (and loooong – “You could at least play Suspicious Minds,” joked “Elvis” star Austin Butler as the piano tried to play him off), the audience was, as usual, rowdy – lots of shots of Moët & Chandon – to the point Carmichael had to scold them to quiet down. Biggest TV winners of the night: “Abbott Elementary” for best musical or comedy, “House of the Dragon” for best drama, and “The White Lotus” for limited series.

What’s behind the recent cancellation of so many shows? Dan McDermott, President of Entertainment and AMC Studios, addressed the question during a panel at AMC’s TCA press tour day. “As human behavior continues to evolve, our industry is experiencing an unrivaled period of reflection and correction,” he said. “Factors including rising inflation, challenging ad market, too many shows, and an over reliance on streaming metrics that don’t necessarily deliver profitability, have caused most content companies, including ourselves, to take stock and recalibrate their forward path.” At AMC, which axed series including “Demascus” and “Invitation to a Bonfire,” McDermott says, “We’ve taken critical steps so that going forward, we’re optimally positioned as a lean, progressive, forward-facing organization, poised to take advantage of the myriad opportunities in the marketplace.”
