American Grandstand, A Dan Snyder Production

- — Style staff

Redskins owner Daniel Snyder acquired Dick Clark’s TV company Tuesday for $175 million. So how will Snyder incorporat­e Dick Clark Production­s’ many programs into his growing sports-and-entertainm­ent empire? Imagine the possibilit­ies: “American Bandstand” dancers replaced by Hogettes. Snyder busts the Golden Globes salary cap by hiring high-priced, free-agent celebrity presenters away from Oscars, Grammys.

New Snyder-inspired TV show launched: “So You Think You Can Coach.”

$75,000-a-pop luxury boxes added at the base of Times Square ball for “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.”

“American Bandstand” songs no longer clearly audible in most parts of the Washington area.

“Greatest TV Bloopers” replaced by recent Redskin highlights (actually, not a significan­t change).

New made-for-TV competitio­n: “The Potomac River Lumberjack Challenge.”
