The 7 Best New Year's Eve-Themed TV Episodes And Movies

New Year’s Eve. It’s an occasion to pop champagne (not that you really need one to) and wear too many sequins for your own good to ring in the new year--or in this year’s case, to celebrate the fact that 2016 has finally come to an end. This year was no walk in the park. If anything, it was a walk through a haunted house and up Mount Everest. But, it's almost over!

Whether you find yourself at an overly populated party or on your couch this New Year's Eve, there's no better way to get into the new year spirit than by re-watching some NYE-themed TV episodes and movies. Fresh starts, resolutions, and NYE kisses all make for pretty interesting plot lines. So, here are seven of the best New Year's Eve-themed TV episodes and movies.

1. "Friends"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Episode: "The One with the Routine"

In this episode, you can catch Monica and Ross busting out their coordinated dance routine from 8th grade at "Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve". You wish you had their moves.

2. "Seinfeld"

Episode: "The Millennium"

It's the millennium! Kramer and Newman begin planning elaborate parties for New Year's Eve 1999, but separate when they get into an argument over whether or not Jerry should be included. Meanwhile, George tries to get fired from the Yankees, Elaine gets into a feud with the owner or a Mayan clothing store, and Jerry dates a girl who uses her speed dial as a way to measure her relationships.

3. "New Year's Eve"

This was a given. You knew it was coming. Look at all of those celebs! And New Year's Eve in New York City? How can you resist watching this movie?

4. "How I Met Your Mother"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Episode: "The Limo"

In an attempt to have the perfect New Year's Eve, Ted rents a limo for the whole crew, with Ranjit behind the wheel (of course). They try to hit five parties in three hours and plan to ring in the new year at the best one at the end of the night. Barney's "Get Psyched" mix sets the mood, but they're on a tight time schedule and run into problems along the way.

5. "Gossip Girl"

Episode: "The End of the Affair"

Dan and Serena share a kiss. Chuck watches as Blair and Louis share a kiss. The season 5 episode comes after Chuck and Blair got in a car accident, Blair and Dan strike up an interesting friendship (relationship?), and the Gossip Girl site is down. It's all very dramatic. But, that's how it always is. XOXO, Gossip Girl.

6. "Friends"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Episode: "The One with All the Resolutions"

Yes, "Friends" had more than one notable New Year's Eve episode. In this one, Ross thinks it's a good idea to wear leather pants on a date. The struggle he goes through is never not funny. The episode focuses on resolutions the whole gang makes, and you basically get to watch them all fail at their resolutions. Bottoms up!

7. "Sex and the City"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

The movie, not the TV show--but obviously both are great! What's in store for Carrie and her best gal pals on New Year's Eve? Probably something glamorously stressful. Watch it and find out.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
