Dick Clark changed music, television ... and American pop culture in general -- and today the people who knew him best joined us with stories about his life and career. From "American Bandstand" to "New Year's Rockin' Eve" ... see how Dick influenced huge acts like Madonna, Prince, Janet Jackson, Chuck Berry and Stevie Wonder.

Plus, Kim Kardashian wants to be mayor of Glendale, CA -- but a former mayor says she's no shoe-in for the gig ... and for some reason Harvey insists on comparing Kim to Ronald Reagan!
