This had to hurt.
Actor Matthew Perry attended the Los Angeles Kings' Game 6 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Friday night (which saw the Kings eliminate the Blues and move on in the Stanley Cup Playoffs). While he probably enjoyed the on-ice action that evening, he may have been less fond of what happened off ice.
You see, Friday was the day that NBC announced it was cancelling his series Go On, as the network apparently decided that no comedy it aired (bar Community and Parks and Recreation) was worth a damn. Go On had seen it ratings slide since its debut, but was still well regarded by critics and seemed likely to be spared the ax.
It was not. So when sports reporter Dan Moriarty headed over to Perry and said, "So, big news today and congratulations is in order," many viewers were probably stunned.
"Oh, thank you," Perry answered. "You mean because of the show getting canceled. It was sort of a sad day because of the people, and I'm going to miss them. But this show was really getting in the way of some Kings games, so I'm OK."
"So it's a double-edged-sword congratulations," Moriarty answered.
I am not sure what Moriarty was going for there, but I think he missed the mark. Unless he just really hates NBC programing. If so, maybe he should interview Jay Leno.
