    Happy New Year, World! Well, close enough. New Year's Eve is right around the corner. Along with that, comes the many infamous countdown specials. These specials are one of my favorite things about the end of year. Being that I am not the type to go out and celebrate at a bar or out in the street, the TV is my window into that world. Though I have always wanted to be in downtown New York when the ball and confetti drops.

    Here is how to watch some of my personal favorite, and best reviewed Countdown Specials:

    1. Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2016:

    Time- Coverage Starts at 8pm EST then stops at 11pm for a news break. Then resumes at 11:30pm until 2:00pm.

    You can't go wrong with Dick Clark's special. The show has been on for decades, and is well known to be the best party in town. It is most definitely my personal favorite.
