Andy Cohen regrets calling out Ryan Seacrest during his booze-fuelled New Year's Eve broadcast.

Last week, the 53-year-old presenter hosted CNN's New Year's Eve Live with journalist Anderson Cooper, where the two were "over served" alcohol.

On his Sirius XM show, Radio Andy, Cohen addressed criticism he made during Seacret's competing broadcast, Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.

"The only thing that I regret saying, the only thing is that I slammed the ABC broadcast," the Bravo star said. "And I really like Ryan Seacrest and he's a great guy and I really regret saying that and I was just stupid and drunk and feeling it."

During the live show, Cohen referred to the American Idol host's musical acts as "a group of losers," saying that the network's booking of Journey without Steve Perry was "propaganda."

"We were doused with confetti from fake Journey on ABC. If it's not Steve Perry, it doesn't count! You get it? It's not Journey!" the host can be seen saying in a clip from the night. "It's propaganda! It's propaganda! It's not Journey! It's not Journey! No, that was not Journey. Steve Perry is Journey."

"I was continuing the Journey rant and I just kept talking and I shouldn't have and I felt bad about that, so that is the only thing," Cohen said of the comments. "The headlines about Ryan Seacrest are all like I trashed Ryan Seacrest and I really... I hope he hears the clip."
