NEW YORK (AP) The Nielsen ratings company says the Golden Globes awards ceremony hit a 10-year high in viewership.

According to national figures released Monday, the NBC telecast, with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler co-hosting for a second year, was seen Sunday by 20.9 million viewers. That's an audience growth of 1.2 million viewers (or 6 percent) over last year's show.

NBC said the telecast is currently the season's most-watched awards program, topping the CMA Awards, Emmy Awards, American Music Awards and People's Choice Awards.

Fey and Poehler are set to return to the Globes in 2015.

For the fifth year, the Globes were televised live to all time zones, and some Western markets also carried an encore telecast following the live coverage, which began at 5 p.m. Pacific time.
