Below, check out our rundown of which special might be right for you.

For years now, the best part of staying in on New Year’s Eve has been watching the battle of wills between Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper on CNN as he worries that she’ll swear, strip, and/or throw something at the artists performing on ABC’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. And, of course, those are very real concerns because she has done all three (and worse), which we’re reminded of in the video below of the duo, along with Griffin’s beloved box wine-loving mother Maggie, previewing this year’s festivities (Dec. 31, 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. ET).

Lily Collins is the most 'dangerous' celeb search

If you’re curious about Lily Collins and head to the Internet to find out, beware — McAfee has ranked the actress as the most dangerous celeb to search for online.

Collins — who starred in movies such as Mirror, Mirror and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones — posed the biggest risk of landing on a malicious site, according to the computer security company; last year, Emma Watson topped the list.

Female celebrities were the overwhelming lure to malware; Avril Lavigne, Sandra Bullock, Kathy Griffin, and Zoe Saldana rounded out the top five; Mad Men star Jon Hamm was the only man in the top 10.

A person could be led to malware after doing a general search and clicking on dubious links, but risks increased when searchers added phrases like “free apps” or “nude photos.”

Who should replace Joy Behar on 'The View'? -- VOTE

Big changes are coming at The View. On this morning’s program, Joy Behar officially announced she was leaving the show. While there were rumors over the weekend that Barbara Walters may also be stepping down and that Elizabeth Hasselbeck was fired, those reports appear untrue for now. But we know there is at least one talk show chair to fill.

Joy Behar is considered by many to be the funniest of the group. It may be a long shot, but I’d love to see another feisty red-headed comedian replace her: Kathy Griffin. The fact that Griffin continually gets herself banned from the show won’t do her any favors, but it would be a way for a whole new audience to make the ABC morning show appointment television. She has her own show on Bravo, but its lack of ratings may entice her to switch things up. Her potential smackdowns with Hasselbeck would be legendary.

Almost immediately after Behar’s departure was announced, there were rumors that Brooke Shields would replace her. (A rep for The View told EW, “Everything was discussed at the top of today’s show. As far as Brooke Shields joining the show, I cannot confirm this rumor.” A rep for Shields had no comment.) The actress’ most recent appearance was playing Lady Nora in the Downton Abbey Jimmy Fallon spoof, so the frequent guest co-host (she’s sat in on the Today show, The Talk and Good Morning America) could definitely be looking for a new project.

Kathy Griffin talks about Anderson Cooper's crotch on 'Letterman' -- VIDEO

After comedian Kathy Griffin pretended to perform oral sex on the CNN anchor during their annual New Year’s Eve coverage, she went on The Late Show with David Letterman to — well, “apologize” would be the wrong word — explain herself.

“If you think this is the part where I’m gonna apologize for trying to go down on Anderson Cooper, you are sorely mistaken,” she said. Watch the video below!
