'Desperate Houeswives' effect pushes Golden Globes to Monday night

MUMBAI: The popularity of US broadcaster ABC's show Desperate Housewives has compelled to NBC to reschedule the film and television awards show The Golden Globe Awards to Monday night. The show will air on 16 January 2006 from the Beverly Hilton.



In India the show will air live on Star World early in the morning on Tuesday 17 January 2006. Media reports indicate that the move was prompted by a request from NBC to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) which organises the awards. The irony is that while the Globes showered awards on Desperate Housewives in January viewers preferred to watch the antics of Teri Hatcher and the gang rather than see them being rewarded. The move cost the Golden Globe Awards 7.5 million viewers.

The HFPA initially had expressed some concern over the availability of top Hollywood stars on a Monday night but research put their fears to rest.



Nominations for the Globes will be announced on 13 December. Meanwhile the most prestigious movie awards show will take place on 5 March 2006 ? one week later than this year's ceremony. The event was moved back in order to avoid going head-to-head against the closing ceremonies of the 2006 Winter Olympics.
