CNN Misses Midnight New Year’s Eve Countdown In Central Time Zone


Drinking had nothing to do with it.

CNN’s booze ban for its correspondents working New Year’s Eve couldn’t be blamed for a major gaffe in one segment of its broadcast, as the network missed the traditional countdown to midnight in the Central time zone.

Network host Don Lemon was busy dancing to Juvenile’s sentimental “Back That Azz Up” and missed the changeover into the new year.

Lemon was busy throwing beads to his fellow dancers, then mumbled something about the countdown just after midnight. As the song continued, viewers were treated to shots of celebrations elsewhere in the Central time zone, all as New Orleans seemed oblivious to the moment.

What caused the disconnect is unclear. There were some social media posts indicating Lemon may have had some trouble hearing producers throughout the broadcast.
