Event Information:

Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest (formerly Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve) is a television program that airs every New Year's Eve on ABC. It had previously been hosted by Dick Clark since its first airing on Sunday, December 31, 1972. Ryan Seacrest has been the program's co-host since the December 31, 2005 telecast. The show features performances from various contemporary artists, as well as coverage of the dropping of the Times Square Ball in New York City's Times Square. The program airs live in the Eastern Time Zone, and then on tape delay in the other areas of the United States so that the show is correlated to when midnight strikes in the other respective time zones. On April 18, the long-time host of the show, Dick Clark, died after suffering a heart attack. ABC has not yet commented on future New Year's coverage, nor has Dick Clark Productions has commented on the future of the franchise.

Early indications are that the show will go on, hosted by Ryan Seacrest. It has been suggested that Taylor Swift will be one of the headline acts for .

 

Since December 31, 2000, a pre-show of New Year's Rockin' Eve has aired in primetime, featuring additional musical performances and live updates from Times Square. The program has typically consisted of live coverage of New Year's Eve festivities in Times Square (including its long-running ball drop), along with live musical performances on location by popular artists (which are exclusive to the broadcast). Since 2005, Ryan Seacrest has hosted the live show outside in Times Square itself.

While New Year's Rockin' Eve has aired every year on ABC since 1974, the show was handled differently in 2000 due to ABC News' day-long special, ABC 2000 Today. While Rockin' Eve was not aired, Dick Clark still played his traditional role alongside ABC News correspondents for its coverage from Times Square of celebrations in the Eastern time zone.

In terms of years on air, Clark's string of being the permanent host of the series, 38 years, is the second-longest of any host of an American entertainment television program, behind only Jerry Lewis, who has hosted his eponymous telethon from 1966 through . Both Lewis and Clark are ahead of Don McNeill and Bob Barker, both of whom lasted 35 years. (Though Don Francisco has spent 49 years as host of Sábado Gigante, that show has only been based in the United States for 25 of those years.) However, Barker and McNeill hosted daily programs, not annual shows as Lewis and Clark have.
