Regardless of what you've done or where you've gone on New Years Eves past, you can probably remember watching Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve prime time special. It is a show filled with musical acts, special guests and commentaries by the legendary Dick Clark himself. The excitement felt when I see the crowd in Times Square makes me feel like I'm a part of something much larger, and makes me feel connected with the world. Watching the ball drop during the count down is a tradition many of us around the world share. For one moment out of the year, we are all connected.
Sadly, Dick Clark has passed away, but his memory still lives on with Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest. Ryan Seacrest has big shoes to fill, but with his charm, humor and demeanor he is sure to fill the role quite well. Seacrest is a DJ and host of TV's American Idol, so he is already a household name. He has been co-hosting the popular program since New years' Eve 2005. Since 2006, Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas has been the West Coast correspondent.
Although Dick Clarks' presence is greatly missed I, like so many other Americans will be tuning in to ABC on my direct TV HD DVR to watch New Year's Rockin Eve with Ryan Seacrest and Fergie.
