Rockin' In The New Year

 Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve is an annual television special that airs every New Year's Eve on ABC. The special broadcasts from New York City's Times Square, and prominently features coverage of its annual ball drop event, along with live and pre-recorded musical performances by popular acts from Times Square and Hollywood, respectively.

Its creator and namesake was entertainer Dick Clark, who conceived New Year's Rockin' Eve as a direct competitor to Guy Lombardo and the Royal Canadians' popular and long-running New Year's Eve broadcasts on CBS from the Waldorf-Astoria. Clark personally felt Lombardo's big band music skewed too old and did not appeal well to younger viewers, leading to his show putting a focus on pop music. The first two editions, which were hosted by Three Dog Night and George Carlin respectively, and featured Dick Clark assuming the role of Times Square reporter, were broadcast by NBC for 1973 and 1974 respectively. In 1974-75, the program moved to its current home of ABC, and Dick Clark assumed the role of host.
