For those who prefer to snuggle up in front of the television screen, New Year’s Eve specials range from Gershwin to Kathy Griffin, reported USA Today.
And although he’s been hosting with her for eight years, Anderson Cooper admits that working with there’s-no-such-thing-as-TMI comedienne Kathy Griffin makes him very, very nervous. The duo will host CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live tonight beginning at 9 p.m. And if you’re wondering why he’s so anxious, watch to see what happened last year.
“I’m always nervous when we’re together. I never know what she’s going to do, and inevitably, she does several things that are outrageous or shocking, and I spend the rest of the night thinking, ‘Who am I going to have to apologize to now?’ But it’s always fun and I think it’s fun for folks that are watching.”
If watching Kathy makes you nervous as well, soothe your soul with New York Philharmonic New Year’s Eve: A Gershwin Celebration on PBS starting at 8 p.m. tonight, followed by the 10 p.m. appearance of singer/pianist Michael Feinstein with Glee star Darren Criss.
Pining for Pitbull? Then tune into Fox to watch Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution from his hometown in Miami with Fall Out Boy, Enrique Iglesias, and Becky G.
Competing with Anderson and Kathy to ring in the New Year, Ryan Seacrest will again host the special with the very long title, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2015 (ABC, 8 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. ET/PT). Look for Taylor Swift and Florida Georgia Line to join him in Times Square.
As the Inquisitr reported, the ubiquitous Seacrest celebrated his 40th birthday on Christmas Eve. Older and wiser, he views adopting his very puppy as his major accomplishment in 2014. He talks about his puppy pride below.
