“This is Ernie Johnson in our NBA on TNT studio, we are interrupting regularly scheduled programming here on HLN to bring you bonus NBA playoff coverage of the Warriors and Rockets. The Thunder and Mavs game is running long on TNT; so we’re gonna start the Warriors and Rockets here. Once the game is over in Dallas, we’ll take Golden State and Houston back over to TNT.”
“We certainly appreciate your understanding… and we take you now to Houston.”
Mark this down as a VERY rare occurrence.
Update: At 9:55, Johnson came back and signed off, saying, “We’re gonna take the Warriors and Rockets over to TNT, so if you wanna keep watching this game, that’s where you’ll be find it. Meantime, scheduled programming resumes, here on HLN!”
