The ubiquitous Ryan Seacrest will now have his name in ABC's annual New Year's special, retitled "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest." Dick Clark continues as co-host, says ABC, but his name in the title "reflects the success of the co-hosting responsibilities of one of America’s most time-honored traditions."
Meaning, I hope, TV traditions. I'm not quite ready to put "Rockin' Eve" up there with, say, Memorial Day.
By the way, the show will mark its 37th anniversary this year.
