LA's Worst New Year's Show in the World

Live Disaster
KDOC Los Angeles

While this New Year's had some of the best shows ever seen before, it also had an outstandingly awful one in a city you'd expect to have the budget to do better than that. Los Angeles held a Live New Year's show filled entirely with bad improv, music from a generation ago, bad comedy, drunk people, and the only thing it did successfully was be so bad that is laughable in that sad sort of way.

Okay, so lots of things have been said about this year’s batch of New Year’s Eve TV broadcasts — mostly about Kathy Griffin bending down to kiss Anderson Cooper‘s crotch on CNN’s air.


But forget that. Just forget it. It wasn’t important. After you read this post, none of those other faux-NYE messes will be relevant.


Why? Because independent local Los Angeles station KDOC’s New Year’s Eve special was the most glorious train wreck to ever grace New Year’s television. It’s so unbelievably bad that it becomes so very, very good.
