Clark was given his usual honor of counting down the seconds remaining until the new millennium began, doing so with Ford, since the latter had been assigned to Times Square during the broadcast. Since the broadcast was live for the entire country at 12 a.m. EST, only East Coast viewers celebrated midnight with Dick Clark. At midnight for the other time zones, Dick Clark's countdown and the ball drop was not replayed. Instead, countdowns for other cities were shown live at their respective midnights.

On December 31, 2005, Dick Clark appeared on Rockin' Eve 2006 in a slightly smaller studio role along with Seacrest and correspondent Marysol Castro in Times Square, and Hilary Duff in Hollywood. During the program, Clark remained behind a desk, and was only shown in limited segments. His speech was slower and deeper, and he appeared to have limited use of his right arm.

Reaction to Clark's appearance was mixed, as reported by CNN. While some TV critics (including Tom Shales of The Washington Post, in an interview with the CBS Radio Network) felt he was not in good enough shape to do the broadcast, stroke survivors and many of Clark's fans praised the emcee for being a role model for people dealing with post-stroke recovery.[5] The Washington Post is the largest newspaper in Washington, D.C..

Dick Clark returned to hosting the show once again, the second time after recovering from his stroke. At first, Clark's countdown was again slightly off from the actual time, however, by 11:59:55 p.m. to 12:00:00 a.m., Clark was exactly accurate in his count, forcing himself to skip the number "10" in order to keep up with the actual time in the last seconds. Shortly after midnight, Clark was seen in a heartfelt moment with host Ryan Seacrest, as Seacrest thanked him for his commitment to the show over the years and his continued willingness to be a part of the event. After that, they went on to share a few jokes, and then Seacrest picked up hosting duties for the remainder of the show.
