New York - HGTV's New Year's Day programming lineup will entice any viewer who has ever dreamed of living in a fantasy winter locale, on a stunning tropical island or in an amazing beachside home. The schedule will feature fresh programming, including Rose Parade 2014, the cornerstone of the day-long event. Sizzling twins Drew Scott and Jonathan Scott, who were recently tagged among People magazine's "Sexiest Men Alive," will join Emmy(R) Award-winning entertainment journalist Nancy O'Dell on the announcers' platform for HGTV's live and commercial-free coverage of the 125th Rose Parade(R) presented by Honda.

HGTV also will launch its largest social media campaign ever: a live all-day Twitter party with such top network talent as the Property Brothers, the Cousins, Rehab Addict's Nicole Curtis and Love It or List It duos, Hilary Farr/David Visentin and Jillain Harris/Todd Talbot. Throughout the day, fans can join the Twitter party by using #HGTVNewYear to ask their favorite network stars questions and get advice about everything from renovation and decorating to New Year's resolutions. Fans also may find that their actual tweets appear live on air.

Specials such as Hot Beach Houses, Cool Pools, 15 Amazing Homes, Amazing Water Homes and new episodes of viewer favorites Buying and Selling, House Hunters and House Hunters International will round out the day's viewing.

"The day's lineup focuses on some of the world's most beautiful places, so even if you spend the day in your PJs, you'll enjoy a trip of a lifetime," said Steven Lerner, senior vice president, programing and development, HGTV and DIY Network.
