5 Memorable Dick Clark TV Moments – From Bandstand to New Year’s Rockin’ Eve

Broadcasting legend Dick Clark, whose career started at Utica's WRUN, passed away earlier today. We take a look back at 5 TV programs he hosted during his lengthy career.


TV’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes



TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes ran in the late 80s on NBC. Clark co-hosted the show with Ed McMahon. The program consisted of bloopers from sitcoms and practical jokes played on stars. In the clip below, Dick Clark talks to Vicki Lawrence about bloopers from 'Mama's Family.'






One of Dick's last Game Show hosting assignments was this early 1990s series where he brought the popular party game Scattergories to life.



$10,000 Pyramid



The great thing about Pyramid is that the structure of the game stayed the same for decades but the prize amount grew and grew. Here's a $10,000 Bonus Round winner.



American Bandstand



Dick Clark hosted American Bandstand for an incredible 33 years from 1956 to 1988. The show originated in Philadelphia then went national in 1964. Here's a classic 70s era clip featuring the Village People.



New Year’s Rockin’ Eve



Even longer than his run on Bandstand, Dick Clark spent 40 New Year's Eves in Times Square in New York City to watch the ball drop. Here's the countdown that would be his last as Clark counts down the final seconds of 2011.
