Does the west coast see east cost reruns for New Years?

If so, does this mean the east coast is faster than the west coast?

1. It means I can just go to bed if I want to! Lol

But old enough to remember when they wouldn't show east coast stuff to spoil it for us.

3. Does New York see Australian reruns for New Years?

A Kiwi once told me Australia may be a day ahead, but it's years behind.

4. It means we celebrate New Years with Breakfast and the Rose Parade on a bright, sunny...

...New Year's Morning rather than shivering out in the cold in a crowded mass of people in the middle of the night And actually, we see your New Year's real time rather than in re-run. But yes, we are...more leisurely when it comes to crossing over into the New Year than the East; that's what comes with the global information age; we in the west end up vicariously enjoying New Year's Eve with Australia, with China, with Europe and New York. By the time it's our turn, we've been there and done that...several times

Which is why most westerners I know celebrate our shift into the New Year with breakfast. That's what I'll be doing. And I'll be sure to think of you, tomorrow, and your hangover (and the hangover of whoever that stranger is in bed with you) while I sip mimosas, dine on Eggs Florentine, and watch all those spritely marching bands and floral floats drifting down the sunny streets of Pasadena.

6. I'm watching the Vegas feed right now - it is absolutely horrendous.

New York got PSY and Pitbull. We so far have seen Lifehouse and Carmen Electra.

7. Here in the Bay Area, we see the live East Coast feeds

(at least on cable) then they replay them again later.
