Ricky Gervais' controversial hosting style has not only raised a few eyebrows, but also the ratings for The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Close to 17 million viewers tuned in to watch the British comedian blast certain celebrities with off-colored remarks. That's a five percent increase from last year's 16.98 million. Last night's highly-rated awards show secured NBC a win for the 8 - 11pm time slot.

As for whether the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will ask Gervais to host the 2012 Golden Globes, he tells USA Today:

    "That's ominous, isn't it? So I probably won't be here next year. I'll go f**king mental."

So far, x17online voters think Ricky could have gone further with his jokes with 60% saying they love his humor.

Looks like controversy equals ratings.
