Friday, December 31st, 2010

Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve with Ryan Seacrest reaches its 38th annual edition with the Dec. 31, 2010- January 1, 2011 special. Dick Clark and Ryan Seacrest will host the special starting at 10:00 p.m. (ET & PT) with Fergie joining as Los Angeles segment co-host. As noted in Wikipedia, In terms of years on air, Clark’s string of being the permanent host of the series… is the longest of any host of an American entertainment television program.” Dick Clark spoke about his first New Year’s special in 1959 and his inauguration of New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in 1972 (competing with Guy Lombardo who at that time “owned” New Year’s Eve on TV), when he was interviewed by the Archive of American Television on July 29, 1999.
