Transcript for Ryan Seacrest Gets Stuck in Elevator in Times Square
pack this famed spot for the country's biggest new year's eve celebration and right now, our own rob Marciano is all the way at the top of one times square ready to flip the switch on the 2017 ball for the first time before it drops. We miss you, rob. How is it going up there? Well, it's chilly. Going great for me but it's not going so good for Ryan Seacrest who was supposed to be standing right here right now but he's stuck in the elevator. No. Yeah, I think -- he's in there with his crew and he's stuck. He's been there for like a half an hour. You're kidding. He's not going to make it here. That's for sure. We hope he makes it into the studio in a second. He's smiling in that picture. I'm not sure he's actually smiling at this very moment. No. He may be slightly annoyed. Doesn't bode well for new year's eve. We've known each other for awhile and I am taking it personally. It's not you. Rob, we promise it's not you. I know pretty much everybody will do anything possible -- Ring that alarm. Ring the alarm. He will get there. He will get to the studio. Help, help. Oh, my gosh. They rang the alarm. Underneath the ball in times. We're stuck in the elevator, everybody. This is classic. Rob, here's the move, you have to go down there and rescue him. You want to rescue him. Great idea. Like a "Mission: Impossible" dangling in the elevator shaft. Then rob would get stuck. Are you kidding me? I have none of those skills. The only skill I have is to flip this switch. The ten-year anniversary of Phillips with L.E.D. Lights in the ball, 32,000 of them. All right. I'll see what happens. It's on partially. Is it -- oh, boom. 32,000 L.E.D. Lights look like that. Weather in a little bit and hopefully Ryan. Having satellite issues. Rob, thank you very much.
