New Year’s Eve countdown specials 2023: How to watch the festivities


We end this truly landmark year in celebrity drama with an effort to stave some off: CNN has asked the co-hosts of its annual New Year’s Eve special to refrain from drinking on air.

The program has become known for its alcohol-fueled shenanigans; while ringing in 2022, Andy Cohen ranted about Bill de Blasio’s “horrible” years as New York mayor and managed to insult fellow TV host Ryan Seacrest, too. Seacrest, who helms “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” over on ABC, said in a recent interview that he supports CNN’s decision to limit the drinking.

“There’s some pretty respectable people or at least one, right? I think there’s a serious journalist and then a friend of mine who has a lot of fun, but it’s probably a good idea,” Seacrest told Entertainment Weekly earlier this month, adding: “Although the viewers probably wish they would drink more.”

CNN has barred its New Year’s Eve hosts from getting sloshed

With alcohol out of the picture, whose live special will reign supreme? (Some other offerings — such as PBS’s “United in Song 2022: Ringing in the New Year Together,” co-hosted by soprano Renée Fleming and actor-performer Chris Jackson — are pretaped.) There is a bit of an underdog to consider: singer Miley Cyrus, who hosted her NBC program for the first time last year alongside comedian Pete Davidson. This year, Cyrus will instead celebrate with her godmother, Dolly Parton.
