This year’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest (10 p.m. ET, ABC) will mark the 40th anniversary of the iconic holiday show from host and executive producer Dick Clark. Cohosts Clark and Seacrest will be joined by Lady Gaga, Pitbull, Hot Chelle Rae, the Band Perry, blink-182, Christina Perri, Florence + the Machine, Gym Class Heroes, LMFAO, OneRepublic, Nicki Minaj, Taio Cruz, and will.i.am. Whew!
In Friday’s issue of EW, Clark runs down some of his favorite New Year’s Rockin’ Eve memories — like the time his camera crew was, unbeknownst to him, “being entertained by an office full of naked celebrants” in a building high atop Times Square. “When we started in 1972, I was perched on top of a Times Square building accompanied by my wife and a lone cameraman,” Clark writes. It’s certainly grown since then. Look for more from Clark in the new issue of EW, on stands Friday Dec. 30.
Now tune your clock to “ABC Time” and let’s relive a few choice NYRE moments….
