Fox Cancels Their 'New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022' Special Due To COVID-19 Omicron Variant Surge

Fox has made the difficult decision to cancel their upcoming New Year’s Eve 2022 celebration, New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022.

The decision comes as cases of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 continue.

“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,” the network announced in a statement, via Deadline.

It adds, “We will not be moving forward with Fox’s New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2022 in New York. The health and safety of our casts and crews has always been, and will continue to be, of the utmost importance.”

The Masked Singer judge Ken Jeong and Lego Masters‘ host Joel McHale were set to host the special.

Fox did say that another program will air in the vacancy, but has not announced what that will be just yet.

Many other things have been cancelled or rescheduled due to the Omicron strain of COVID-19.
