Ryan Seacrest to Rock New Year’s Eve Show Six More Times on ABC Through 2029


If you’re planning your New Year’s celebrations, this is important to know.

ABC has announced a deal with Dick Clark Productions through January 1, 2029 with Ryan Seacrest Rockin’ New Year’s Eve.

Alas, this is the top rated show on New Year’s if you haven’t gone out or haven’t fallen asleep.

ABC says Rockin New Year’s Eve attracted 13.8 million Total Viewers last year, drawing in 17.9 million Total Viewers and hitting a 5.34 Adult 18-49 rating in the midnight quarter-hour.

You don’t have to watch it, there are other things to do. But maybe you’re in the hospital or you’ve been kidnapped, this is still a viable choice of entertainment.

Just kidding! God bless! Dick Clark is smiling down from heaven.
