“CBS News Sunday Morning” acknowledged and apologized for technical difficulties Sunday that resulted in graphics greeting viewers in major markets, including Washington D.C., New Orleans, Detroit, Chicago and countless other smaller affiliates.

The graphic appeared through the show’s opening and full first segment. After a commercial break — which proceeded smoothly — the show’s second block also began airing with the same issue. The problem was not entirely fixed until almost 10 minutes into the broadcast.

“We have received a number of messages that transmissions of #SundayMorning were unavailable across the country,” it tweeted. We are sorry this happened Click here to view the entire broadcast from this morning https://cbsn.ws/2S6hhLL .”

The glitch could not have come at a worse time for CBS, as the network readies to host the Super Bowl on Sunday and will air an interview with President Donald Trump before the big game. Teaser snippets of the sit-down with “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan are already circulating around the internet.

The interview will have added significance, as it is increasingly rare that the president has conversations with a network not named Fox News.
