ABC’s traditional New Year’s Eve telecast will do something this year for the first time: It will count down to midnight live in the Central Time Zone. “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2017” announced this year’s expanded broadcast will include a live countdown in New Orleans.
Seacrest, who will be joined by Jenny McCarthy in Times Square, will lead the countdown from New York. Singer Fergie returns to host the Billboard Hollywood Party in Los Angeles.
The festivities get started at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Please click here for the schedule and additional details from ABC about what’s in store.
