7:15 pm
recognize me. kennedy: i feel like you should have been in the pope mobile because you were so universally recognized by the nypd officers who are keeping us safe here tonight. jesse: that's right. kennedy: jesse, jesse watters, i love "watters world." jesse: blue lives matter. they're doing a great job protecting the city, all of the cities across the country. kennedy: that's why chiefs come here to new york city to find out about the ground breaking law enforcement that takes place every day, especially tonight here in times square where you have to keep the party going. you have to make sure that people feel safe, protected and happy and at the same time looking out for their best interest from every corner. jesse: the party is under way. keep tweeting us using the

7:24 pm

7:36 pm
headed to the president. >> you and your detail. jesse: those are minor details. >> i can't take a joke. no one can take any of these. oh well. jesse: all right. and a lot of police officers. >> well i'm going to go ahead and keep hosting. there are a number of cops here in times square. let's go to bryan llenas who has been cracking the situation for days in the freezing cold. bryan: i'm here to save jesse from what just happened i guess there. >> how dare you, bryan. i'll come for you next. bryan: help me. all right, guys. look. this is a force like we've never seen unsush passed in terms of protecting. i want to give people at home an idea of how much is needed to protect. it's not only on the ground, it's in the air. look at the different vantage points the nypd has to think about when it comes to
7:37 pm
protecting times square. and obviously after what happened in las vegas, there there extra observations, snipers on a lot of the buildings. in side the hotels and office towers, there are uniformed personnel inside. for days before they were scoping out these hotels and working with hotel staff to make sure that they understood what suspicious behavior would look like. you can look at the hotel all the way over there, just one of 43 hotels in the area. if you look over here, we've got policpolice vehicles blocking te entrance into times square. 12 different security check points to come inside. every single one of these folks had to get checked twice before coming in and spending 12 hours out here in the freezing cold. there are also vapor dogs. these dogs are trained to sniff out bombs in the air and also on
7:38 pm
people. they're specifically trained to do that in a crowd of 50,000, they're able to find a potential suicide bomber and that is very important given the fact that we were reminded just two weeks ago when a failed suicide bomber detonated a pipe bomb underneath times square a couple of blocks that way. what they did here was released a new technical bulletin a couple of weeks ago in time for new year's eve to remind police officers what to look for when it comes to a suicide bomber. but also how to react in case they see someone that is about to detonate a bomb. so they have thought about everything. another thing to think about is obviously the weather. ems services are out here. we know the nypd has brought more and more people out here than they ever have in terms of ambulances to try to make sure they were here in case people had hyperthermia or frostbite.
7:39 pm
the police officers themselves have been out here since 9:00 a.m. and we know that the red cross has been out here specifically to give out hot coffee and hot chocolate to officers. and man oh man do they deserve it. not only are they here until midnight. they are here for the cleanup afterwards as well. the nypd has thought about everything as we can expect. fbi, atf, all here. it is impossible really to get out once you're in. and once you're in a pen if you leave, you're done. a lot of the folks who are here, even if they have to go to the bathroom, even if they're freezing, they're holding out as much as they can. the last thing they want to do is leave the secure pen. once they leave the pen, it's all over. police officers are doing their best to keep us safe. i feel safe. people here feel safe and we want to thank them. they could be with their families right now but instead they're out here to keep people like me and jesse and kennedy safe and we can't thank them
7:40 pm
enough, guys. jesse: all right. send some of that hot chocolate back up here. we could use it. not only do they have the people in uniform, they have the plain clothes officers too. so if you try anything funny, think about it. there could be a regular guy to take you downtown. kennedy: we talked about the terror attacks we've seen in new york city but also the incident in las vegas deals the way that law enforcement deals with crowd control. you have a lot more snipers and spotters who are not only here in times square but also along the perimeter and the streets and avenues that run counter to this part of the world. jesse: i think it's like a 12-block radius. very safe. people are starting to get fired up. kennedy: come on down. jesse: if you're crazy. coming up, richard fowler puts the times square partieser to pe
7:41 pm
test as we continue to count down to 2018. kennedy: stay right here. ♪ >> all right i'm doing a confession 2018 instead of a resolution. last year i winged it own everything, including my eye liner. this year i've got a plan.

7:47 pm
desperate attempt to create a franchise from pop literally. number two, "the mum my" dead on arrival. even the biggest movie star on the planet could not safe this movie. note to universal, audiences don't care about this expanded dark universe you're betting on. if the memory is indicative of the upcoming bride of frankenstein, let's wrap up the contest. the worst movie of 2017, the crown goes to "king arthur." it only hoped to $15 million. has there ever been a bigger flop. the legend of king arthur has been told so many times it's far from legend. hello, transformers 30, this guy never would have been green lit. in a year when women made history, arthur failed to have
7:48 pm
any compelling female characters of note. not a record for success. what were the best movies of 2012017, coming in at number the "the post." stephen spielberg dealt with the most important movie of the year in his telling of katherine graham and the washington post struggle. number two "the greatest showman." hollywood at its best. this would lead p.t. barnum proud. the best movie of 2017, number one "get out." why? it's the best reviewed movie of the year, rotten tomatoes giving it a 99% fresh score. second, made for a mere $5 million, it grossed over $200 million at the box office. probably the most successful movie of the year. and third it was the most
7:49 pm
relevant movie of the year forcing audiences to tackle a race issue. and finally with two golden globe nominations, it could go on to take the top prize of this year's academy awards. what can we expect for the year ahead? more dinosaurs, more monsters, more sequels and more star wars. back to you in times square. kennedy: thank you very much. jesse: do you smell pot? i smell pot. kennedy: to me that just sounds like a skunk or some sort of a kitchen fire. let's leave it at that. jesse: my friends tell me that's what it smells like. kennedy: while i celebrate your freedom, i don't engage in it. jesse: neither do i, kennedy. neither do i. i didn't see any of the movies that were the best and the worst. it didn't bother me. kennedy: don't you wish you were in a movie ther theater right n?
7:50 pm
jesse: i do. kennedy: it was a great year for music. and here are the top five songs of the year. something just like that, chain smokers and cold play, humble, one of my daughter's favorite songs, "that's what i like" bruno mars. you know what i like? warmth. very much. jesse: never heard that song. kennedy: yeah. jesse: never heard it. kennedy: "shape of you" ed sheeran. coming up we're going to meet one lucky veteran who gets to ring in 2018 request an adorable furry friends. keep using #foxnews2018 stay with us jesse: we'll be right back.

7:56 pm
different veterans? >> so, our trainers and volunteers work really closely to get to know the veteran and their family, their lifestyle, personality and what type of dog will be a perfect fit for them. once we get to know them well, we go out and begin interviewing dogs at our rescue partners and that's the most exciting part. just getting to meet all of the dogs that will one day become a perfect match. jesse: how does the dog interview go? kennedy: do they lie on their resume. jesse: what is your biggest strength. kennedy: i lick too much. jesse: is there a certain dog that's better at being an animal that's compatible with a veteran, does a hot dog do worse than a shih tzu? how does that work? >> we're looking for dogs that aren't any certain breed but they have a really high bond towards humans. that's what we're looking for, the dog that will immediately
7:57 pm
bond with us as a trainer and then we know they're going to be a great fit for the veteran. we make sure they're the right personality and temperament and active lifestyle match. kennedy: can you tell when you meet a dog that they will be a good match or is it something where you train the dog and pull the goodness out of them over time. >> surprisingly in the first two minutes we watch for signs of socialability, we call it. and each dog is really different. but the dogs that are highly social will come right up and be solicit iting affections ca affh you and eye contact with you. we know they're going to be social in a lot of different aspects. kennedy: diely ikylie is wonder. they're obviously cold so we're going to let them get inside. jesse: before peta contacts fox news. kennedy: thank you for your service, lieutenant colonel. jesse: hopefully we don't get brought up on animal cruelty
