Happy New Year! Ben Schwartz & Horatio Sanz aka the New Year Bros. are back! Ben, Horatio, and Scott meet Gringo Starr, make songs a little more sexy, and share their New Year’s resolutions. Then, author Shelly Driftwood returns to tell us about his past hanging with porn stars, his recent break-up, and getting into the music industry. Plus, a brand new Closing Up the Plugs Bag theme!

Ben and Horatio have such a great energy it really makes these New Year's episodes feel like a fresh start.

To my ears the new closing up the plugs bag theme is very very similar to the old one, so it won't take much getting used to.

WOW! Okay, so that's super spooky. A 'Last Christmas' discussion on the best of's and now a 'Faith' singoff? You can't tell me that's not spooky.

I want Gringo Starr & John Lennon to do an episode together and reminisce about the good ol' days.

HA Gringo Starr. So great.

I love when someone does a quick impression, and everybody latches onto it.

Like Lauren Lapkus picking up as the Dell guy a few eps ago.

Mentioning Last Christmas around Christmas is never that spooky I'm afraid, singing Faith was though

Imagine if they added the sexy saxophone from "Careless Whisper" for background music.

Scott reeling off Shelly Driftwood's backstory really made me laugh. He's barely a character at all, is he?

I guess this is the opposite of the George Michael thing?

They could have used their first NYC show in over a decade for the Inauguration of President Showbiz, a tool indeed. Maybe that's too on-the-nose.
