Jamie Kennedy Hosts New Year's Eve Broadcast Disaster (Video)

Jamie Kennedy NYE 2013 - H 2013

The show from Hollywood featured f-bombs, confused stars and dead air.

Perhaps the best New Year's resolution for one Los Angeles-area TV station would be “stick to pre-taped."

Independent broadcaster KDOC Los Angeles’ New Year’s Eve live show featured f-bombs, missed cues and – at moments – nothing but dead air.

It was hosted by Jamie Kennedy and also featured appearances from Macy Gray, Shannon Elizabeth and (curse-happy) Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, though the stars seemed confused and uncomfortable, judging from footage posted online Tuesday.

At one point, a woman in the background of a shot mocked comedian Stu Stone by mouthing the words on his teleprompter as he said them. At another, the camera held for 40 seconds on a confused-looking Kennedy, while audio of two men’s rather vulgar conversation was accidentally broadcast.

YouTube user BlackDudeWhiteChick uploaded choice moments from the broadcast, writing in the description “ALL of the F-bombs, audio and video glitches, awkward pauses and drunk teleprompter mimics are 100% how the show aired.”
