CNN Misses Midnight Countdown In Botched New Year's Eve Broadcast

CNN misses midnight countdown in botched new year's eve broadcast. The coverage for 2022 was expected to go ahead without a hitch following all the controversy over CNN's decision to forbid on-air talent from consuming alcohol during their New Year's Eve show this year.

It was not to be, however, as CNN misses midnight countdown in botched new year's eve broadcast in the Central time zone and rang in 2023 with on-screen footage of host Don Lemon and partygoers dancing to Juvenile's "Back That Azz Up" in New Orleans.

Lemon is seen flinging beaded necklaces into the dancing audience as the seconds passed, only to appear to realize moments later that the countdown and announcement had been missed.

Lemon was busy flinging beads to his other dancers when, shortly after midnight, he muttered something about the countdown. Viewers were treated to images of festivities taking place elsewhere in the Central time zone as the song continued, all while New Orleans appeared unaware of what was happening.

After a brief pause, Lemon queries the audience, "Are you ready for this countdown?" Split-screen imagery revealed celebrations and fireworks in Nashville, where participants and organizers had not missed the occasion.

It's unclear what prompted the separation. Social media tweets suggested that Lemon may have had some difficulty hearing the producers throughout the broadcast.

Given CNN's well-publicized decision to forbid its correspondents from consuming alcohol while covering the event this year, social media soon caught wind of the error. This followed complaints about the hosts of prior programs becoming more inebriated as the night wore on.

The previous year's coverage saw many outbursts from cohost Andy Cohen about "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" host Ryan Seacrest and former New York City mayor Bill de Blasio. Later, Cohen claimed that he had been "overserved" on Twitter.

Some have hypothesized that Lemon's failure to hear his producers through his earpiece during this year's error was due to a technological difficulty.

In either case, the film will probably be added to the long list of spectacular New Year's Eve broadcast flops in the past.

Conclusion

It was unrelated to drinking. A significant error in one portion of CNN's programme couldn't be attributed to the network's prohibition on alcohol for its correspondents working New Year's Eve because it occurred when CNN misses midnight countdown in botched new year's eve broadcast.

The start of the new year was missed by network host Don Lemon because he was too busy dancing to Juvenile's romantic song "Back That Azz Up."
