      • Natalie: So where will you ring in the new year? An estimated one million people will watch the famous ball drop in New York's legendary Times Square.
        Lester: But why see it in person when you can see it through the eyes of Amy Robach who's already there getting a head start. (giggle) Amy, hello.
