Is it time for Dick Clark retire from New Years?

OK, I will admit that I only watched about 2 minutes of the Times Square show, starting at about 11:58 but what I saw/heard surprised me.

I am not really up to speed with Dick Clarks progress since his stroke, and I know he obviously wanted to be there for the show, but he sounded like he really aught to be doing other things than hosting a New Years celebration.

He started the countdown from 20, and had to skip a couple numbers to keep up, and even then was still behind.

I think he needs to start watching from home.

If there has been publicity/announcements regarding his future plans, I just haven't seen them.

What do you think?

Ahhh, I don't know. It's a transition thing. I expect they'll ease him out in a couple of years and then it'll be Seacrest's gig solo.

He doesn't bother me. I say good for him for even trying. The day you quit trying is the day you start dying.

Your question for the topic and your questions for the vote are opposite. I didn't check the question (since it was in your thread title), so I voted the wrong way.

Fixed poll. Since votes were 2/2/1 no messing with them was necessary.

I love seeing brave people, so I say as long as he can get there, keep on rocking the NY brotha!

As far as I'm concerned, Dick can stay as long as he feels like staying...

Now, Seacrest, on the other hand.

I agree -- I voted for him to stay.

Stay. And the allready are phasing him out, he has had way less air time in the past couple of years. He also sounded much better this year than he did last year. I would also like to add, they need to find someone other than Seacrest to take his place. He annoys me to no end.

He can stay as long as he wants.
But for one year, please get a singing performer that sings for real and not lip syncs.
Christina did ok last night(she missed a couple words in the beginning of the first song) , but last year Mariah was terrible.

He should start a "Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now?" thread...

I just watched seacrest introducing him...it was definately awkward. I think Reagan's family did a good thing by keeping him out of the public once he was into his alzeimers. Dick should do the same.

Dick Clark should stay as long as he wants to. He is perfectly aware of how he looks and sounds. It take real guts to do something like that. If your not comfortable with it then turn the channel.

Since there wasn't an option for "past time" I voted no. I appreciate the bravery and all that, and I know he is an icon, but he's gone on well past his prime and should hand the job off already.

And seconded (or thirded, forthed, or whatever) on the comments that taking Seacrest with him would be doing the world a favor.


Not that the folks that were hosting on DirecTV's 101 were that much better, but it was nice having a choice.

Was having Seacrest wear those ridiculous headphone in his contract? Aren't they called Dick Clark headphones, or maybe they are Dave Clark??

Any relation to Dick Clark (the ball dropping Dick Clark) if yes then I can understand why Seacrest "has" to wear them. But then again maybe it is just insanely loud down there and Seacrest would not be able to hear the control center without them. Just looked od to me.

Dick Clark is a New Years Eve staple - stroke or not. He has made his show as much of a tradition as New Years itself. Though it is obvious he stuggles, I applaud his efforts to keep his drive going. After all - he used to be the street guy for a number of hours. He has obviously been scaled way back.

Besides - in case you didn't see Fox's coversage, with Cat Deeley, it was downright awful. Fox was one big infomercial for their college gameday football coverage and Chevy cars (though Cat did not ever realize she kept mispronouncing "Chevy" with a "ch" instead of a "sh").

This is one instance when I wish dual buffers didn't work.

I voted that Dick should go, only because the format would improve. It's too ... stilted, I guess, with Ryan constalntly deferring to Dick, and speaking of him and to him in such reverential tones. I'm not saying it's not warranted, for all that Dick has done, but it's not "entertaining" to watch one host fawn all over the previous full-time host.

We ended up switching to Carson Daly on NBC, and you would NOT believe how comfortable Carson was and how much more enjoyable it was watching NBC's coverage. I think Carson will be the new Dick Clark ...

Also, I second-to-the-max the vote that Seacrest be banned from TV. When he speaks, it takes two minutes for him to complete the same sentence that Carson Daly can handle in 20 seconds!

Good grief. It's HIS show. His name.

He should stay as long as he wants to stay.

The format on the other hand, could use some tweaking.

He should stay as long as he wants to stay, of course. I don't think anyone's arguing that.

However... he's going to have to retire from the show eventually... and that eventually is probably sooner rather than later, given that he isn't getting any younger, and he's never going to recover 100% from a stroke as serious as the one he had.

Personally, I think he's proven that he's able to come back from a stroke and make a contribution to the show, and now that he's proven that, he should feel he can safely hand it off to Ryan or whomever else at this point without anyone thinking any less of him.

Sorry, with my TiVo backed up as it is, and the PRIDE Fighting PPV, I didn't see any reason to watch ANY of those New Year's Eve shows.

In fact, I haven't watched those since I was a kid. Dick Clark, Seacrest, Carson Daly. Wouldn't matter to me. I'd either be watching TiVoed TV, movies, or playing games with my nieces and nephews.

Obviously my vote falls to "I don't care".

I thought it was nice to see Dick Clark. He LOOKED good. He tried really hard. And I think it was really important to him to be there. And that's great. AS long as he keeps feeling that way, he should be there.

When he did the show last year, it was admirable, seeing him fighting back from his stroke. When he did the show this year, it was just sad, seeing that he'd made no progress since last year, and realizing that he probably never would.
