Ciara and Ryan Seacrest may be a good NYE team.
Ciara hosted the Hollywood countdown of New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, while Ryan Seacrest returned again to host the Times Square segment.
The end of year show, which airs on ABC, had much higher ratings than its 2016 show.
CiCi replaced Fergie, who on last year was the Hollywood host.
According to Deadline, during the 10 o’clock hour, the program increased from last year by 35% in Total Viewers, to deliver the program’s best-ever results since debuting in 2000.
ABC’s New Year’s celebration went head-to-head with FOX’s show, which was hosted for the first time by Steve Harvey.
