All The New Year’s Eve TV Specials To Watch To Ring In 2023

From Ryan Seacrest to Miley Cyrus!

What is New Year’s Eve without watching the ball drop? From New York and Miami to Disneyland, aside from the festive TV episodes, the 2022 New Year’s Eve shows bringing in the new year are always spectacular to watch, whether it’s from our TVs or if you’re lucky enough, in person!

Last year one of the most famous NYE specials, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, celebrated 50 years and the festivities continue at Cinderella castle. Down south, the country music capital of the nation will be lighting up their signature musical note to bring in 2023. And on South Beach, a signature girls’ night with a pop star and music icon is also going to be a family affair. The CNN crew is also getting in on the action with a few sober, responsible changes this year.

Nonetheless, no matter where you watch the ball drop, prepare to look forward to live performances from your favorite artists, and all of the hilarious and viral New Year’s Eve moments, without leaving the comfort of your home.

Below are at least five New Year’s Eve specials airing on Dec. 31 you can tune in to as we prepare to go out with the old and in with the new!

If you are a country music lover, this NYE celebration is for you. Tune into the party in Nashville with Grammy-award-winning, country stars Jimmie Allen and Elle King will host, along with Entertainment Tonight’s Rachel Smith.

New Year’s Live: Nashville’s Big Bash will air on Dec. 31 starting at 8 p.m. EST on CBS. It will also be available to stream live and on-demand on Paramount+.

Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party

It’s a family affair! Miley Cyrus will be with her godmother Dolly Parton, in Miami bringing in the new year. The Hannah Montana alum announced the broadcast in a promo video released by NBC. Cyrus sat with Parton sat at a table adorned with champagne glasses in the video. “Miley’s New Year’s Eve is about getting glamourous and dressing your best,” the 30-year-old said. “Well, we do that every day. Don’t we, Miley?,” Parton replied. Miley smiled, “You taught me well.”

The first Miley NYE party took place last year. The singer was joined by Pete Davidson. “The inaugural Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party was an unqualified success and we know this year’s show will be just as spectacular, with plenty of surprises and lots of fun,” NBCUniversal exec Jen Neal said. “We can’t wait to get the party started.”

Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party will air live on NBC on Dec. 31 from 10:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. EST.

CNN’s New Year Eve’s Live


Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen will be in New York City’s Time Square co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live. Performances and appearances will include Usher, Kevin Hart, Ellie Goulding, Patti LaBelle, REO Speedwagon, Nick Cannon, Jenifer Lewis, John Stamos, Tenacious D’s Jack Black, and Kyle Gass, Jean Smart, Cheri Oteri, Ava Max, and more. At 12:30 a.m. ET/PT, Don Lemmon will take it over from New Orleans to help the Central Time Zone bring in the new year. Normally the hosts and correspondents would toast a glass and down a few shots at midnight, but this year, the network has halted that practice. CNN’s chairman Chris Licht has banned talent from drinking on-air and said he felt on-camera drinking eroded the credibility of the brand and “damaged the respectability they may enjoy among viewers.” Needless to say, every host in this special will be going into 2023 sober.

Watch CNN Year Eve’s Live starting on Saturday, Dec. 31 at 8 p.m. EST on CNN, Hulu + Live Tv and Sling TV.
