1 I'm glad that Dick Clark was there till the very end. Truly fitting and appropriate for a legend. I don't care if he was "on the bounce" (Starship Troopers reference) or not. It's the least that could be afforded to someone of his stature. RIP Dick Clark. -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on June 20, 2012, 9:37 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Well, for once, Dick Clark was actually on cue with the countdown (probably a first since his stroke), and ABC was actually off (for a little bit anyway) on the countdown (the first 10 or 15 seconds of the last minute, the countdown clock at Times Square and on TV were off by a couple of seconds). -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on January 1, 2012, 8:12 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I could get that argument, with Dick Clark being like the 100 year old grandfather who is a fixture at a party, but then again, at the same time, with Clark's celebrity, its just way painful seeing him make those yearly appearances and blabbering about whatever and completely screwing up on the countdown. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on January 15, 2010, 4:37 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I like what ocfernan said; Dick Clark still appearing is no different than getting together for your grandfather's 100th b-day party. I cried when I saw him the other night. It just would not be New Year's Eve without Dick Clark! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on January 4, 2010, 11:28 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Just to be clear. Yes, as long as Dick Clark wants to and the network will have him, he has every right to keep doing the New Year's show. However; that alone doesn't mean I have to keep watching it when there's nothing on it I want to see anymore. However,if Dick Clark regains his moxie and DUMPS Ryan Seacrest, THEN I'll watch it again. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 4, 2010, 7:04 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 After reading the recent posts, I've come to agree that it would be wrong to ask Dick to step down. I think it's important to remember how easy it is to tell someone else to retire for one reason or another. Yes, it hasn't been the same since his stroke. However, I agree that he should still get to be there if he wants to be there and is able to be there. He's been hosting this for as long or longer then I think a decent percent of the people posting here have been alive. I think that should count for something. If he should decide one year that he's going to step down, I think we should respect that decision. Really though, it's a once a year thing. It's not as though it's daily or even weekly. Given that, the analogy about a Grandfather's 100th birthday is a good one. Yes, it's sad seeing Dick ill. However, if he wasen't there, it just wouldn't be the same. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on January 4, 2010, 12:43 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
7 True, he is so much a part of the show that it is essentially up to him. However, if I was nothing more than a rambling mess, and nobody could understand half of what I am saying, I would hope, regardless of what I say (or think I say), that you keep me off, or severely limit my role. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on January 2, 2010, 10:24 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Agreed with previous commenter. Let Dick Clark continue to appear. I think it's right for him to be there. Why should his appearance be any different than your family getting together for your grandfather's 100th birthday party? Obviously he's not as young and healthy as he used to be, but you are thankful he is aware and happy there. (Not equating with Dick's age, but you get my analogy) And this may be the only show in which I would always want the title to have "Dick Clark" in it, even long after he cannot do the show. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on January 2, 2010, 6:42 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I think that as long as Dick Clark wants to be on the show he should be. What boned was having Ryan Seacrest on it and putting his name on the title. Am I the only one sick of Seacrest? -- Submitted By: (MCS) on January 1, 2010, 10:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 As much as I admire Mr. Clark for keep plugging along after that stroke, it's too painful to watch anymore (and don't get me started on Ryan Seacrest)! Well, Happy New Year everyone and let's hope the next decade is an improvement! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 31, 2009, 5:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 It is flat-out creepy for the network to spackle on Dick's makeup and prop him up onto his chair. I'm not against people who choose to work after suffering a stroke, but Dick's position here is so high-profile. There just had to have been a way for this to end amicably, but they chose to bone the fish instead. -- Submitted By: (Nature_Boy) on December 8, 2009, 8:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 The Stroke. ABC should of at least let Dick go after he had it, instead of keeping on throwing him on the air, and let him keep blabbing on like a total marble mouth. Even if Dick insisted, ABC should just keep him off. Now younger generations who are watching the New Years stuff on ABC don't know Clark as a legendary man on television, but rather some old relic that is thrown on there despite no one being able to understand anything he is saying. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 8, 2009, 1:36 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I feel bad for Dick. During the countdown to 2009, he was a full two seconds off of the countdown. When the crowd was on 4, Dick was still on 6. This timeless once-a-year special never jumped the shark (yes I said it, so eat that, TV Guide!) -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on July 30, 2009, 6:03 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
