Among the many, many options you have for watching New Year’s Eve celebrations on TV this year, those looking for a political bent as they usher in 2018 will be able to check out “All-American New Year” on Fox News, hosted by Jesse Watters and Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery live from Times Square in New York.
The show will kick off at 10 p.m. EST, but Fox News will have two hours of New Year’s-oriented coverage prior to that. Ed Henry, Lisa Boothe and Dean Cain will host an in-studio special called “Countdown to 2018.”
The Fox News festivities won’t be limited to New York. Fox News correspondent Griff Jenkins will be reporting from the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, and reporter Carley Shimkus will be in South Beach, Miami.
Musical performances will include Andy Grammer and Lauren Alaina in Times Square. You can also watch those performances on the free Times Square stream.
All of Fox News’ “All-American New Year” coverage will be shown on the Fox News Channel and streaming via Fox News Go on computers, mobile devices and streaming boxes, though streaming will require a television subscription. Streaming services like PlayStation Vue and YouTube TV also carry Fox News, and you can sign up for a free trial of those services should you run out of options.
There are several other options for New Year’s coverage should you not be in the mood for Fox News. These include ABC’s “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest,” Fox’s “New Year’s Eve with Steve Harvey” also from Times Square, “Felix 2018!” on Univision featuring Pitbull, and “New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen” on CNN. And let’s not forget, of course, the standard Times Square ball drop stream, which will include performances by Andy Grammer and Lauren Alaina, which you can stream for free.
