During the premiere of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, the Fox channel in Oklahoma cut out a segment of the show during which host Neil deGrasse Tyson talks about evolution.
A local news promo runs in the middle of the show, cutting out the evolution segment, and then cuts back to the "Cosmos" after the scene has passed.
KOKH Fox 25 says the mistake was just a coincidence.
"Sunday, during @COSMOSonTV, a local news promo was aired over a portion of COSMOS content. This was an operator error & we regret the error," @OKCFOX tweeted Tuesday.
