A couple of years ago Ryan Seacrest said that he would not push Dick Clark aside when going to host the New Year. Dick Clark has hosted New Years for the past billion years. He suffered a stroke 3 years ago, and it has really taken it's toll on him. He is 78 years old and could hardly speak coherently on New Years Eve. But still, Seacrest graciously made his appearance with Clark. This will probably be the last year Clark hosts...you would of thought the old guy would have given it up by now, but New Years Eve is his thing. I just thought that it was really cool that Seacrest embraces Clark as a his co-host, and shows the respect that Clark has so obviously earned through out his broadcasting career. I think it's sweet.
