Writing in this week’s Heat magazine, Gervais said: ‘The ratings went up again, and the organisers asked me to consider a third year. [But] I don’t think I should. I don’t know what I could do better. I certainly couldn’t get more press for them, that’s for sure.And with reference to The Office and Extras, he joked: ‘You know me. Two seasons is enough.’He said: ‘The response was staggering. It was discussed on every news channel and chat show for weeks. The weird thing is, the question is always, “Did Ricky go too far?” And the answer is always, “No.” I have yet to find anyone who was actually offended by it.’
Remember all that “controversy” about how Ricky Gervais’ Golden Globes hosting bits “went too far” and how he would be banned for life? Yeah, not so much.I, for one, am shocked. I always thought that making fun of Tim Allen, John Travolta and Charlie Sheen would get you blacklisted in Hollywood. I mean, those guys run that town!
