“The 67th Annual Golden Globes Awards” (8 p.m., NBC): This awards gala might not be as prestigious as the Oscars, but it’s lots more fun because the stars tend to drink like a fish and let their hair down. Adding to the frivolity of the whole scene at the Globes this year will be snarky first-time host Ricky Gervais, who promises to give the celebrities in attendance some gentle ribbing. “Anyone who’s younger and thinner and richer and more attractive than me are the ones I’m going for,” he says.
“Human Target” (8 p.m., Fox): And you thought you had a hazardous job. In the new drama, “Human Target,” Mark Valley stars as a bodyguard who saves lives by thrusting himself in the line of danger. Do not try this at home.
“24” (9 p.m., Fox): The new season of “24” opens with Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) just kicking back and enjoying some stress-free time with his little granddaughter. You know that won’t last for long.
