image for Fox cancels ‘New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022’ telecast due to omicron surge

Fox has decided against moving forward with its “New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022” production in New York due to the ongoing surge of Covid-19 and its omicron variant.

“While we are confident in the health and safety protocols for ‘Fox’s New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022,’ the recent velocity of the spread of Omicron cases has made it impossible to produce a live special in Times Square that meets our standards,” Fox Entertainment said in a statement.

“We will not be moving forward with ‘Fox’s New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022’ in New York,” it said.

Replacement programming for New Year’s Eve on Fox will be announced in the coming days.”.

It remains to be seen whether these names will still be attached to whatever type of production Fox decides to move forward with for its New Year’s Eve event.

With the cancellation, Fox becomes the first network to announce a major shift in its planned New Year’s Eve programming.

ABC is also proceeding with its annual “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” event, with broadcasts from N.Y.’s Times Square, New Orleans, L.A. and Puerto Rico. »
