CNN bans drinking during New Year's Eve coverage. According to a Variety article, the left-leaning cable network's new CEO, Chris Licht, informed CNN employees that drinking is prohibited during New Year's Eve coverage at a town hall meeting at the network's Midtown Manhattan headquarters on November 15.

The crackdown follows New Year's Eve celebrations where CNN stars, including Don Lemon, were clearly inebriated and intoxicated.

Lemon's antics have made him a social media sensation. After the ball dropped one year, he had his ear pierced live on air. On a different show, Intoxicated Lemon announced himself to be a "grown man," on a different show, saying that he was "able to share my point of view on television and it freaks people out and you know what."

You can kiss my behind, I do not care. I donโ€™t care.

Even though he had embarrassed himself on New Year's Eve in the past, Cohen sounded firm when he said he wouldn't tone down the drunken partying in Times Square.

During an episode of Anderson Cooper's well-known Bravo chat show "Guys, come in tight," Anderson Cooperโ€™s New Yearโ€™s Eve sidekick told his camera operator during the broadcast of his popular Bravo gabfest "Watch What Happens Live." "I just want you to know that Anderson and I are going to party harder than we have ever partied before on New Yearโ€™s Eve!"

Cohen played footage from the previous New Year's Eve broadcastduring that episode, during which he bids his sobriety "Sayonara, sucka." The remark, "Sayonara, sucka," was actually a part of Cohen's tirade against Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York at the time.

[Iโ€™ve been] watching Mayor de Blasio do his โ€˜victory lapโ€™ dance after four years of the crappiest job as the mayor of New York. The only thing that the Democrats and the Republicans can agree on is what a horrible mayor he has been, so sayonara, sucka!

- Andy Cohen

Due to his heavy drinking, the Bravo presenter later claimed that he "could not recollect" embarking on his anti-de Blasio rant. The inaugural New Year's Eve show in the Licht era will air this year. Licht took over after Jeff Zucker abruptly left the position earlier this year.

Staff members expressed concern about their futures after Licht's recent town hall, which was conducted by CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota. The boss made it clear that the network will lay off more people at the beginning of December.

Conclusion

CNN bans drinking during New Year's Eve coverage. On-air talent won't be allowed to party when the ball drops on December 31 to ring in 2023, according to CNN's new CEO, although the event's hosts, Andy Cohen, and Anderson Cooper, will be excluded from the rule.
