CBS News took a social media beating on Sunday night after a timing error caused affiliates in two time zones to cut off the broadcast of a concert special — right in the middle of Billy Joel’s iconic hit “Piano Man.”

The network had been touting the Sunday night broadcast of “The 100th: Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden – The Greatest Arena Run of All Time” for weeks, and viewers quickly took their dismay to X as the highly-anticipated event ended in disappointment.

“Hey @CBS wtf is this?! You cut off @billyjoel during Pianoman of all songs?! And then didn’t come back to it?!?! Now wonder network TV is a mess. Not ballin, not ballin at all,” the X account for “The Gunz Show” posted.
