2018 is heading to the calendar archive in the sky tonight, and so it is Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen will once again ring in 2019 for everyone who tunes to CNN on New Year’s Eve.

It’s the same scene as usual, with CNN’s ubiquitous Cooper ushering in the new year with a hours-long show talking about the year that was while chatting with correspondents around the country to see how everyone is celebrating. And like last year, Andy Cohen is joining him — looks like he might be Kathy Griffin’s permanent replacement.

So what to expect? Cooper and Cohen in Times Square on CNN, with correspondents all over the place checking into various happenings, as happenings are bound to happen on New Year’s Eve.

The event kicks off at 8 p.m. and lasts through 12:30 a.m. EST. Celebrity guests will stop by, music will happen, and so on and so forth. You know the deal.

You’ll be able to watch the event on CNN broadcast, or streaming on the CNNgo service, online and via the CNNgo apps on smart devices and streaming boxes, but you’ll need a TV provider login for that. If you don’t have one of those but still want to watch, you can try to snag a free trial of a streaming service like Sling TV.
