I maybe watched 30 seconds of Ryan Seacrest’s New Years Rockin’ Eve thing, because we were glued to the Georgia-Ohio State game and only turned on the countdown briefly so that the kids present could celebrate the ball dropping on East Coast time. And when we flipped back, we found out those 30 seconds were the pivotal ones with the missed field goal. OF COURSE. It seems they split the show between New York and Disney this year, as opposed to the usual Anonymous Studio Space In L.A. I did later, passively, hear about a minute of Ben Platt singing Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way” with Aly and AJ, and they sounded pretty good? Which makes up for the pants. A bit.
