If you're sitting alone on New Years Eve and just aren't getting full off EV1.net Houston Bowl between Texas Christian and Iowa State, you're in luck: ESPN2 will be hosting a live New Years Eve night show from the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square, from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. It will be hosted, inevitably, by Stuart Scott and, most amusingly, an " as-yet unnamed host, probably a woman." (Lupica just can't catch a freaking break over there.)

We've always though of Scott as more the Carson Daly of sports than its Dick Clark, but, other than that, it pretty much makes sense. ESPN will join ESPN2 for the telecast after the Giants-Raiders game it's airing finishes, and it will feature "musical acts" like The New York Dolls and The Chesterfield Kings, mainly because the guys from 3rd Bass were busy. (In jail, probably, the punks.)

All right, we're gonna just go out and say it: If you watch this, you have a problem.
