CNN Hosted their annual NYE bash from New York City's Time Square this year. The program was hosted by Andersoon Cooper, Kathy Griffin, Erica Hill, and Kiran Chetchry.

It's always so fun to watch this special. Loved it as usual.

Kathy Griffin in my opinion went overboad and stuck out like a sore thumb. Wasn't the best choice for the show

Here we go again...

Kathy Griffin is set to host CNN's New Years Eve special alongside Anderson Cooper in Times Square. I thought this was a really bad idea last year, after watching it, I found it to be a very bad idea.

Kathy Griffin being there will keep me far away from CNN on New Year's Eve.

I think it's great that Kathy will be on with Anderson again. Last year was great. Kathy and Anderson together are hilarious.

I have no opinion on kathy and Anderson on New Year's eve, but CNN, as well as other TV networks will have New Year's specials, including the Sydney (Australia) fireworks, the festivilites in Japan, China, Taiwan, and around the world, including London UK as the Big Ben strikes 12 on New Year's Day, and the famous Times Square ball drop in NYC.

BTW New Year's Day is just 7 days away.

I'm not going to lie, I watched the last little bit of the NYE special, and it wasn't horrible. It was however very, very risky. I think that is the appeal that the show is trying to maintain though. Dick Clark's NYRE is more family oriented as are many of the other NYE specials, so this one stands out. For sure.

I hope CNN (or whoever made the agreement for her to give back her talent fee for her hosting) makes her give the money back, or even better, to a charity. She knew what she was doing. You can tell by the smile she tries to hide.



With that said, it was still probably the highlight of the evening. :lol:

It was OK. It wasn't as good as past years and to me Anderson seemed annoyed with Kathy and he had to keep reigning her in. I don't think it was a s funny as it could have been.

I enjoyed the special with Anderson & Kathy - was funny to watch Anderson trying to get a word in during some parts where Kathy was just talking & talking. However, if CNN doesn't let Kathy back to NYE 2010/11 (because the way they done her contract for the broadcast) - I can see the broadcast being with Anderson & Erica (who was a reporter for NYE 2008/09) or even just Anderson by himself.

I somehow missed it as I watched the show too, but see previous page. Indeed looks like F-bomb accidentally slipped out. Ironically she in the beginning showed a bunch of legal papers basically telling that she must give the money back if she says something profane on live television again.

It was OK. It wasn't as good as past years and to me Anderson seemed annoyed with Kathy and he had to keep reigning her in. I don't think it was a s funny as it could have been.

Yep, I saw it too... Anderson was really nervous... Probably because of the last... and this year...
