Today, I was forced to spend New Years Eve with my strict/conservative parents in the middle of nowhere in Illinois. If I had nothing else, I looked forward to watching the ball drop in NYC. As the seconds counted down the T.V. shut off. Parental controls shut down cable at midnight. FML

Show it anyway

Yay #2, you fail. Congratulaions :D now go and get a life instead of trying to be first. And OP...that sucks, try standing up for yourself. Depending on how old you are. If you're younger than 15, then don't bother. Older that 15, tell them where to shove their parental controls.

Don't feel too sorry for her considering NYC is an hour ahead of IL so it would be at 11. Nice try but I live in Illinois and I watched that one. It was quite nice.

retard. they show it every hour so each time zone gets it.

This reminds me... I thought New York was an hour or two ahead of Illinois...? So... The OP should have been able to see the first ball drop. I must still be buzzed, because typing "ball drop" made me laugh..

I used to watch it at 9pm(as I mentioned below) when I was younger. Then at 10pm. Then 11pm. Then at midnight.

try celebrating when the cell door locks you in at midnight. u should be so lucky to spend it with ppl who love you not someone who might take ur ass!

You're a dumb-ass. The ball drop is recorded at midnight in NYC and is replayed in every time zone at midnight. What kind of sense does that make otherwise?

I live in the central time zone as well and for as long as I can remember the ball drop has always been broadcast at 11:00.
