Golden Globes and CBS Ink 5-Year Deal That Includes American Music Awards Broadcast Rights

The Golden Globes will air on CBS and livestream on Paramount+ for another five years, per a new deal that also puts the American Music Awards on the Eye Network. The agreement kicks off with the January 2025 telecast of the Globes.

January 2024 marked the Golden Globes’ first ceremony since being acquired by Dick Clark Productions. (Variety parent company PMC owns Dick Clark Prods. in a joint venture with Eldridge.) Previously, the show was produced by Dick Clark through an agreement with the now-dissolved Hollywood Foreign Press Association, whose scandals caused NBC to drop the show in 2022 before airing it again in 2023.

The renewed agreement between the CBS and Dick Clark is unsurprising, as the Globes saw success on the network this year, reaching 9.4 million viewers on Jan. 8 — a 50% increase from NBC’s 2023 telecast — which grew to 10 million after one week of delayed viewing.

“CBS’ collaboration with the Globes for this year’s broadcast was a big win for both of us and established strong momentum for awards shows in 2024,” said CBS president and CEO George Cheeks in a statement. “The Globes is a one-of a-kind live event that adds another marquee special and valuable promotional platform to CBS’ annual calendar. I’m excited to expand the partnership with Jay and the entire team to continue to drive the Globes forward.”

“We’re so proud to continue to call CBS our home for the Golden Globes,” said Jay Penske, chairman and CEO of Penske Media and Dick Clark Productions. “CBS stepped up for the Globes during a very challenging time, and inherently understood its value, while having the foresight, imagination and conviction to bring this iconic show to its many platforms. We’ve long admired CBS’ commitment to some of the greatest cultural live events and partnering for the long-term further cements this show’s legacy and incredible place in history.”

“Today marks a significant milestone for the Globes as we solidify our partnership with CBS and Paramount+ for the next five years,” said Helen Hoehne, president of the Golden Globes. “We are incredibly proud of the audience we garnered in 2024 and look forward to building upon the immense success to make the 82nd annual Golden Globe Awards the best and most memorable show yet.”
