DON'T MISS: "THE 70TH ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS" - It may not be Hollywood's most prestigious awards show, but it's almost always the most fun. Keeping things light, fast and loose this year are first-time co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, former "Saturday Night Live" pals, who will lead us through a glittery (and possibly boozy) celebration of outstanding achievements in movies and television. 6 p.m. today, NBC.

OTHER BETS
