WVUE to Re Air ‘Cosmos’ After Evolution Segment Partially Covered by Commercials

wvue_304Viewers of Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s show Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey again missed out on part of a discussion about evolution when a technical error covered it with a news promo, a psa and some commercials.

In the latest error, viewers of New Orleans FOX affiliate WVUE missed nearly a minute and a half of Tyson talking about how global climate change millions of years ago paved the way for the primate to human evolutionary journey.

A similar snafu happened at Oklahoma City FOX affiliate KOKH. There, a master control error was blamed for covering over Tyson talking about evolution.

WVUE president and GM Sandy Breland told nola.com the cover up was “an automation error.” She also said the episode would re-air at 10:35 p.m. on Thursday. Breland added, “It was a mistake. We certainly regret the error.”
