Was there anyone else that was disappointed that they didn't actually show the ball drop in Times Square just that count down clock? That's what we stay up for

  • Yeah, we are PST and we watched and had DS watch the new year with EST in NYC (look at all the letters) so he could be in bed right after nine. Even he asked where the ball was. AND the countdown with the people talking, didn't match what they were showing on the screen. The voices were 2 seconds ahead of what the screen was showing. So everyone was saying, "Happy New Year" and the screen still showed 2 seconds. What the heck?

  • I didnt see it drop either... I guess it did cause they showed the stupid phones afterwards but even then we didnt see it. No one here at my house did. We were disappointed. We have a 65 inch TV and didnt see it....

  • lol, I thought I was imagining that I saw it..haha...I was actually yelling for my dd who was in the kitchen to come over for the final countdown. So, I just managed to get a fast peek at the tv. Your right though it wasnt like it usually is..

  • I remember them showing the numbers and a quick flash of the ball, but we didn't see it either! The digital countdown was a little let down.

  • They didn't drop it? Did they explain why?

  • Im not sure what you mean, I saw it drop on TV, did you mean a close up of it?

  • It dropped they just never showed it like they have in past years with it coming down. I saw them light it up on GMA yesterday morning so I know it worked. We were just disappointed they didn't show it coming down like usual
