"And Mariah – never speak. It’s a shame that Dick Clark can’t talk but you can."Oooh boy . . . Ken, this was the first really funny thing I've read this year - I'm still gasping . . . lol!Happy new year, bro . . .


Ken, it was very sad to see and hear Dick. Come on Ken..... you don't darken your eye brows????? roger carroll

Christ, it all makes you long for Guy Lombardo again.

I forgot to mention.... Seascrest called Dick Clark, Dick CAREY at one point. And you obviously missed Anderson Cooper on CNN getting flustered at the drag queens who were making lusty comments about him during a live report from Key West.


And did you see Susannah Hoffs of the Bangles? She still looks 25!IMDB.com listed her as...... ready for this?47 this month!

Oh my, this year's "Rockin' Eve" was hard to watch. I cringed when Dick spoke. It's really sad. I felt the same way about Kirk Douglas. You're right about Mariah too. My thoughts exactly, but you're funnier of course!Happy 2006 Ken!


Dick Clark should've limited himself to a quick "I wanted to be here even though I'm not 100%" and then exited after a few minutes. It really became like watching a train wreck... and it made me ring in the new year feeling guilty about staring slack-jawed at him.Which also brings the point... Is Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve the best we can do for New Years programming??? Nevermind the whole tape delay for the west coast thing, but I honestly wanted to shoot the TV every time they cut to "Hollywood" for a lip-synched musical performance CLEARLY shot weeks earlier. Can't we invent a new New Years Eve show format??? WHO LIKES THIS CRAP?!?!

I was very glad that we DON'T have HD when Mariah was on.One of the news people (CNN?) said that Dick was on for a grand total of 8 minutes. I agree, he should have had a cameo and then gone and watched the fun with the Mayor or something. The Disney connection - doesn't Disney own the network? And didn't it sound more than a little like the Travel Channel? "You've just got to experience this for yourself! All the confetti! The crowds!"Tivo makes the whole thing almost workable, as you can fast forward through it and then just watch the bits that look funny.
