The night kicks off at 8 p.m. ET on ABC with “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Presents The 30 Greatest Women In Music” — a two-hour clip and interview countdown of the 30 greatest female artists in music.
At 10, Seacrest will spotlight some of the year’s best artists, groups and songs for “Dick Clark’s Primetime New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014.” Finally, from 11:30 on, the live countdown to midnight begins with “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014, Parts 1 & 2.” The party ends at 2:12 a.m. ET.
The shows with the really long titles are a presentation of Dick Clark Productions. Seacrest, Allen Shapiro and Barry Adelman will executive produce. Larry Klein is producer.
This will be Seacrest’s 9th year as part of the show. The date will be, you know, New Year’s Eve.
