Jamie Kennedy Talks NYE Disaster

KDOC’s awful local New Year’s Eve show went worldwide and host Jamie Kennedy explained to the New York Times that this was the plan from the start.

“It was totally supposed to be like that,” Kennedy said. “We wanted to make almost an anti-New Year’s Eve show, and the recipe calls for unexpected. We had an open bar for our guests, we were unrehearsed. It was not glamorous. We shot at the apex of craziness on Hollywood Boulevard on New Year’s Eve, in front of one of the most highly visible places, the Chinese Theater, and it was more like a block party type of feel.”

And it looks like you set your DVR for next year’s show as “the world’s worst New Year’s broadcast” could be back.

“Commerce Casino is already signed up for next year, they loved it,” Kennedy added. “And I got a text from Marilyn Manson that says he wants to do next year. And I want to get Wu-Tang Clan. I want to put people in that I like. I would like to do this again.”

Count me in.
