REPORTER FAIL!!! — Matthew Perry Congratulated … For Show Being Cancelled!

File this under, “EPIC FAILURE BY A SIDELINE REPORTER!”

Here”s the setup … reporter spots Matthew Perry at the L.A. Kings game on Friday night, hours after NBC made a huge announcement about Perry”s show, “Go On.”

Reporter decides to CONGRATULATE Perry on the announcement, LIVE on the air.

Problem is … the announcement was that NBC had CANCELLED the show (whoops!).

What ensues is nothing short of HILARITY.

“You know, the show that I was doing was really getting in the way of Kings games,” Perry deadpanned.

Brilliant.

Props to Awful Announcing & Danny Deraney for finding this gem.
