NBC has been slammed for its New Year's Eve coverage in New York's Times Square with angry viewers describing it as a 'train-wreck' after the network failed to show the entire countdown and aired Chrissy Teigen talking about vaginal steaming. 
Baffled viewers flooded Twitter with complaints about NBC's coverage and its hosts as the countdown unfolded on Monday night. 
Some called the network's coverage a 'complete disaster' and others suggested it was the 'worst New Year's Show ever'.
Many complained about NBC failing to broadcast a countdown clock or the ball drop in Time's Square.

'Is it just me or did #NBC not show the actual ball drop?' one user tweeted. 
'NBC when did hosta become more of a focal point than the ball drop? Better luck in 2020? #fail #NewYearsEve2019.
'We tuned in to see the ball drop. Explain where the hell THAT was,' another Twitter user complained.
'For those of you that didn't watch @nbc coverage of the 'ball drop'... they didn't show the ball or a countdown clock, but we did get this lovely gem of @Lesdoggg tried to take out @chrissyteigen with an umbrella.'
Viewers also took aim at one of the hosts, Chrissy Teigen, after she briefly explained vaginal steaming to co-host Carson Daly about 15 minutes before midnight. 
'Watching NBC with my 12 year old 20 min before the ball drops and Chrissy Teigen starts talking about vaginal steaming. Really?! The host of NYE... vaginal steaming? Come on... have a little CLASS. Too many families watching honey. Not cute,' a Twitter user said.

'Why is @chrissyteigen talking about vaginal steaming on the NBC New Years countdown? I hope she's just drunk but I'm almost positive she's just dumb and obnoxious. 
Another Twitter user wrote: 'Whenever you think our society isn't making some kind of progress, remember the time a major network pre-approved a Chrissy Teigen to discuss a photo of her doing vaginal steaming on a NYE broadcast. What a time to be alive #2019Mood.'
Chrissy Teigen also got a painful poke in the eye from co-host Leslie Jones' umbrella when they tried to hug during the broadcast when midnight struck.
The model was seen taking a spoke right in the face as she leaned in for a hug with Leslie Jones on Monoday night.
Teigen later joked on New Year's Day that she was: 'heading back out to time's square to find my eyeball'. 
Elsewhere, NBC brought out some heavy hitters for it's New Year's Eve celebration. 
Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Clarkson, Diana Ross and Chrissy's hubby John Legend all performed during the special.

Poked: Reeling in half-mock, half-actual pain, Jones than heightened the offending tool before going in for a second attempt, hugging her apologies successfully this time

Meanwhile over on CNN, hosts Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper butted heads with Times Square security after event organizers told them that CNN would not be invited back next year if they didn't relinquish their umbrellas. 
Early on in their CNN broadcast, Cohen and Cooper were huddled underneath a single umbrella before the Watch What Happens Live host went off-camera for a minute and returned to announce that someone with the Times Square Alliance, which organized the festivities, had told him to ditch his umbrella because it's a security risk. 
Cohen responded with a lengthy rant about how absurd it was that the person allegedly threatened to revoke CNN's credentials in 2020 if they don't comply, blasting: 'This is some grade A BS!' 
Times Square erupted with fireworks and cheers at the stroke of midnight as thousands of hardy merrymakers braved pouring rain and watched the glowing New Year's Eve ball complete its midnight descent to mark the start of 2019. 
For the multitudes who gathered in the famed midtown Manhattan crossroads, the thrilling moment was reward for enduring hours of standing in a steady downpour during the waning hours of 2018. 
Many donned plastic rain ponchos and sported colorful, oversized top hats handed out by organizers.
