Cat Deeley is hosting the New Years special on Fox this year and will be competing for ratings against Ryan Seacrest on ABC and Carson Daly on NBC.
But Deeley hopes to cleverly out-host her competition and says shes been practicing her New Years 10 to 1 countdown every day.
In addition, shes willing to battle Seacrest and Daly for the best host title. As she puts it, If I saw them in a dark alley Id have to give them a little shot to the kneecaps.
Deeley also isnt opposed to a host-off with her competition but admits she probably wont be sabotaging the ball-drop in Times Square to make her countdown the fastest.
But, just to prove theres no bad blood with her rivals, Deeley plans on hooking up with Seacrest after their shows are over.
Says Deeley: I think Im going to dinner with Seacrest. All is fair in love, war and New Years Eve TV specials.
