Due to the conclusion of Donald Trump's exceedingly long acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention last night, the West Coast feed of the season 11 finale of the hit TV series Bones was a bust for fans. The Fox network joined the episode around two-thirds of the way in.

When fans discovered they’d been shorted the first 40 minutes of the finale, Twitter erupted with outrage. Forcing the television network to issue this statement:

“Due to an over-run in coverage of the Republican National Convention, a portion of last night’s season finale of Bones was pre-empted on the West Coast. We will re-air the finale next Friday, July 29, at 8:00pm ET/PT on Fox. The episode also is currently available on Fox.com, Fox Now app, Hulu and Fox on Demand. We apologize to our viewers for this inconvenience.”
