MTV New Year's was a television special which aired on New Year's Eve annually on MTV, though the title varies in some way every year. Since 1998, the special was typically broadcast from Times Square in New York City, and prominently features coverage of its annual ball drop event, along with live performances by popular musicians from MTV Studios in One Astor Plaza. During the late 1990s, 2000s, and part of the early 2010s, the special was heavily promoted and featured top musical acts and celebrities but in recent years has been occasionally significantly reduced, often featuring just a one or two hosts broadcasting from the studios or a platform in Times Square with no audience or musical performances.
The network decided not to carry a special at the end of 2015 leading into 2016, choosing to carry a marathon of the viral clip series Ridiculousness instead, with a teaser of the first segment of the next episode of the network's series Teen Wolf aired at midnight; the network and parent company Viacom in general went through number of staff and budget cutbacks in 2015 due to declining ratings. This was repeated in subsequent years.
