Another Year Without Dick Clark On New Year’s Eve [VIDEO]
Another New Year’s Eve tonight without Dick Clark, the creator of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” which first aired in 1972. Every New Year’s Eve, the TV in the McShea household was tuned to that show, and Dick Clark never let us down. Even after his stroke a few years back, he courageously continued with help from Ryan Seacrest. Tonight, ABC rings in the new year with Ryan Seacrest.
