Dressed in black jeans and white shirt from his own collection, Seacrest said he would rather have the rain than the freezing cold like last year. He reamained calm even when he backed into a heater and his jacket started smoking. Like many years before, He and co-host Jenny McCarthy braved the New York City weather and brought in the New Year in Times Square with the rest of the city.
