ABC PRESENTS A TWO-NIGHT SPECIAL EVENT TO CELEBRATE THE ICONS WHO PASSED AWAY AND COMMEMORATE THE MOST NEWSWORTHY AND MEMORABLE MOMENTS OF 2017

'The Year In Memoriam 2017,' Hosted by Robin Roberts and Conceived by Jimmy Kimmel, Airs Monday, December 18 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network

"The Year: 2017," Anchored by Robin Roberts, Airs Tuesday, December 19 (9:00-11:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network

As another historic year comes to a close, The ABC Television Network presents an epic two-night event filled with nostalgia, laughter, celebration and remembrance, beginning with "The Year In Memoriam 2017," MONDAY, DEC. 18 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST), followed by "The Year: 2017" on TUESDAY, DEC. 19 (9:00-11:00 p.m. EST).

Hosted by "Good Morning America" co-anchor Robin Roberts and conceived by ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, "The Year In Memoriam 2017" celebrates the legendary stars and icons the world lost this year and the legacies they left behind. Roberts and Kimmel join forces for a unique tribute and learn more about these beloved stars through stories shared by those closest to them, including Valerie Harper, Ed Asner, Bernadette Peters and Dick Van Dyke remembering co-star Mary Tyler Moore; Tracy Morgan, Bob Newhart, John Stamos and Bob Saget remembering fellow comedian Don Rickles; Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker honoring the legendary Glen Campbell; Hunter Hayes and Alice Cooper celebrating music stars Tom Petty and Chuck Berry, as well as Dane Cook, Jeff Ross and Sean Hayes memorializing the multitalented Jerry Lewis.

"The In Memoriam segments are always the most moving parts of a major awards show. Robin and I thought it would be fitting to pay longer-form and more personal tribute to these American icons with great stories from their friends, colleagues and peers," Jimmy Kimmel, host of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

2017 was filled with extraordinary moments, profound movements, surprising trends and plenty of politics. After covering the biggest news stories of the year, Robin Roberts and an all-star team of ABC News anchors and correspondents take a look back at the historic and most memorable moments in the two-hour special "The Year: 2017." Robin, along with George Stephanopoulos, David Muir, Michael Strahan, Lara Spencer, Amy Robach, Martha Raddatz, Juju Chang, Dan Harris, Byron Pitts, Paula Faris, Jonathan Karl and Tom Llamas give viewers a wide-ranging review of the year in politics, top trends, pop culture and more.

From President Trump's first year in office to the #MeToo movement triggered by widespread sex abuse allegations in Hollywood to breakout stars and the viral videos that captured our attention, "The Year: 2017" is jam-packed with unforgettable highs and lows and features new interviews with some of the year's most popular personalities and buzz-worthy breakout stars, including comedian Tiffany Haddish, "Jeopardy" contestant winner Austin Rogers, YouTube sensation Logan Paul and tennis star Sloane Stephens. Additionally, a panel of insightful and entertaining contributors join Robin and team as they examine the highs and lows of 2017 including "The View" co-host Meghan McCain, ABC's "Shark Tank" guest "Shark" Rohan Oza, comedian Michelle Buteau, ESPN host Katie Nolan, Entertainment Tonight host Kevin Frazier, CEO of TheBlaze Glenn Beck and ABC contributor Alex Rodriguez.

"What I appreciate about the special is that you get an entire year of news and pop culture in just two hours. The show is appropriately serious when it needs to be, and it's also filled with many fun, lighter moments," Robin Roberts, co-anchor, "Good Morning America."

Jimmy Kimmel, Robin Roberts and John R. Green are the executive producers of "The Year In Memoriam 2017" with co-executive producer Seth Weidner and senior producers Michaela Dowd and Evelyn Seijido. It is a co-production of Lincoln Square Productions, Rock'n Robin Productions and Smoking Baby Productions.

John R. Green and John Palacio are the executive producers of "The Year: 2017."
