That said, there’s still plenty of fun to be had with Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve and New Year’s Eve Live, which air on ABC and CNN, respectively. In addition, New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash returns to CBS.

Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2024
Everyone’s favorite New Year’s celebration, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest this year.
The media personality will be emceeing from New York City as the iconic TV special celebrates the occasion with over 5 hours of music performances and guests. And in keeping with tradition, the program will offer viewers a look at New Year’s Eve celebrations around the globe.
This year marks the 52nd edition of the special, as well as Ryan Seacrest’s 19th year as host. Seacrest is far from the only celebrity on the guest list, though. He will be joined by both new and nostalgic music acts, including Aqua, Ellie Goulding, Green Day, and Ludacris.

Like the NYC party, Nashville’s event will stretch 5 hours on New Year’s Eve. Rather than pop sensations, however, the Tennessee town will celebrate with country artists. Hosted by Elle King, the night’s entertainment includes Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lainey Wilson, Trace Adkins, HARDY, and much, much more.

New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen
Co-hosted by Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen, New Year’s Eve Live will usher in the New Year from NYC’s Times Square. Ahead of the big night, both Cooper and Cohen released statements expressing their excitement for the event.
“There’s no one I’d rather spend New Year’s Eve with and nowhere I’d rather be at midnight than New York’s Times Square!” Cooper said. “Spending new years with my dear friend Anderson is my idea of a great time, and a happy tradition that I look forward to all year long.” agreed Cohen.
Rather than worldwide celebrations, New Year’s Eve Live will focus on more local events. Cohen and Cooper will give viewers a glimpse at countdown parties all across North America.
Of course, no NYE event is complete without a little music. Cooper and Cohen will be joined by performers including Darius Rucker, Jonas Brothers, and Maroon 5. Several other stars will also make appearances, such as Jeremy Renner and magician David Blaine.
