Fox cancels ‘New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022’ telecast due to omicron surge

Fox has decided against moving forward with its “New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022” production in New York due to the ongoing surge of Covid-19 and its omicron variant. The network announced its shift in plans on Tuesday evening.

“While we are confident in the health and safety protocols for ‘Fox’s New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022,’ the recent velocity of the spread of Omicron cases has made it impossible to produce a live special in Times Square that meets our standards,” Fox Entertainment said in a statement.

“We will not be moving forward with ‘Fox’s New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022’ in New York,” it said. “The health and safety of our casts and crews has always been, and will continue to be, of the utmost importance. Replacement programming for New Year’s Eve on Fox will be announced in the coming days.”
