I could have sworn last year we all chatted about how bad Andy Cohen was on the CNN NYE countdown with Anderson Cooper. I can’t seem to find the post, but I recall there was a lot of pot involved. People were getting high on TV. Don Lemon was…well Don Lemon only drunk and high. It was a hot mess. Did I imagine all of that?
I plan to switch back and forth between a few channels. What are you going to watch?
Ryan Seacrest is back on ABC again with Jenny McCarty hosting from Time Square. There will also be a New Orleans feed and a west coast countdown. It starts at 8 pm. It doesn’t look like we will have Mariah Caray this year. None of the performers I’ve seen listed seemed impressive. At all. But I am not that into music and am old so your mileage may vary there.
Carson Daily is hosting on NBC starting at 10 pm. Chrissey Teigen and Leslie Jones co-host. Plus Keith Urban will host a Nashville countdown. The musical guests look pretty decent. John Legend, Jennifer Lopez, Peter Frampton! and Bebe Rexha among others.
AC Squared is on CNN and I will probably suffer through it again this year. Don Lemon will be in New Orleans getting shitfaced on live TV. I miss Kathy Griffin.
Fox and Fox News both have their own countdowns that I will probably pay no attention to.
I have champagne chilling and lidocane patches on my lower back to numb the entire experience.
So um, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I plan to make a lot of comments unless I pass out early. I just made a run to Kroger to buy peas and greens for tomorrow completely wore myself out.
On the other hand the random gunfire has already started and Banjo is probably not going to let me sleep. He’s already losing his shit.
What are y’all eating and drinking tonight? Why didn’t I buy one of those cheese balls covered in nuts at the Kroger? What a missed opportunity!
