Over on Season 7 of Seinfeld, Elaine was deciding who was and was not sponge-worthy.
Beanie Babies were still the ultimate stocking stuffers.

We got to see Walther Mathau and Jack Lemmon lovingly feud in Grumpier Old Men.
And Angela Bassett was literal fire in Waiting to Exhale.

On NBC, Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve featured performances from Brandy, the Goo Goo Dolls, Kool and the Gang, Martin Page and The Rembrandts.
Over on Fox, Carrot Top and Sheryl Crow starred in New Years Eve in Vegas.
