Jenny McCarthy Asks Fans: Who Should I Kiss at Midnight?

Jenny McCarthy Ready for a Crazy New Year's Eve with Ryan Seacrest

For Jenny McCarthy, New Year's Eve has become a parallel universe. It's the one night of the year when everyone else is crazy, and she's not.

"I'm excited," says McCarthy, 40, about co-hosting Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest on ABC. "I have more fun doing live TV than anything, I think because it's hard to censor. And I like that! So it's a little more off the cuff, and you never know what's going to happen."

That's an understatement. The show will run five hours again this year – it used to be just two and half – and McCarthy knows that's a lot of time for the hordes in Times Square to do unexpected things.

Dick Clark, the producer and television personality known as "America's Oldest Teenager" for his perennially youthful looks and enthusiasm, has died at age 82.

Clark suffered a "massive heart attack" on Wednesday morning, his rep says in a statement, after he entered St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., for an outpatient procedure on Tuesday night.

"Attempts to resuscitate were unsuccessful. He is survived by his wife Kari and his three children, RAC, Duane and Cindy," the statement continues.

Clark, a diabetic, had suffered a stroke in 2004 but continued in recent years to appear on his New Year's Eve special from Times Square with Ryan Seacrest hosting.
