Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2007

Reaction to Clark's appearance was mixed, reported While some TV critics (including Tom Shales of The Washington Post, in an interview with the CBS Radio Network) felt he was not in good enough shape to do the broadcast, stroke survivors and many of Clark's fans praised him immensely for being a role model for people dealing with post-stroke recovery.[2]

Clark also appeared on the 2006 Emmy Award telecast on August 27, 2006. Clark was introduced by American Idol judge Simon Cowell, after the show paid tribute to his successful career that has spanned decades. He was shown seated behind a podium, and although his speech was still quite slurred, was able to address the audience and introduce Barry Manilow's performance.

On December 31, 2006, Clark will return to "New Year's Rockin' Eve," co-hosting with Ryan Seacrest. [3]
