* At the 2018 Winter Olympics, NBC was ''so sure'' that the dominant Anna Veith had won the women's Super-G, even with 25 skiers left, that Dan Hicks and Bode Miller repeatedly referred her as ''the'' gold medalist, referred to another skier as the last one with any chance at a medal, interviewed Lindsey Vonn about her "5th place" finish after a commercial, and then cut away to go back to figure skating. Meanwhile, Ester Ledecká, a Czech snowboarder who had been recently dabbling in alpine, pulled off what was likely one of the most shocking upsets in Winter Olympics history, beating Veith by '''''one hundredth of a second.''''' Needless to say, NBC eventually returned to inform the confused audience of what had happened.

* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heidi_Game Heidi Game.]] The [[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague New York Jets and Oakland Raiders]] were playing, and the final quarter was running longer than usual. Creator/{{NBC}} was contractually obligated by a sponsor, Timex, to air a made-for-TV movie of ''[[Literature/{{Heidi}} Heidi]]'' at 7:00 p.m. ET sharp. After noticing how intense the game had become, NBC Sports' executives decided to forget about the order and have ''Heidi'' start after the game ended. However, there was just one problem; they were unable to get through to network control to tell them about the change in plans, because NBC's switchboards were flooded with callers asking about whether NBC would be showing ''Heidi'' or the end of the game. In the end, NBC's east coast feed cut away from the game and never came back. Meanwhile, back in Oakland, the Raiders pulled off a MiracleRally with two game-winning touchdowns out of nowhere. After the bad publicity NBC received from football fans for the incident, it soon became standard practice for sports telecasts to always air a game in its entirety.

* At the end of a ''Thursday Night Football'' game with between the Bengals and Texans, Houston's NBC station jumped the gun and cut away to local news right after the clock hit :00 ... ''on the scoreboard''. In reality, one second was put on the clock for Cincinnati to make one last attempt at a game-winning touchdown, which resulted in a ridiculous play with several laterals, and Houston defensive end J.J. Watt absolutely pummelling a Bengals center to seal their 13-9 win. While it was only week 2, and in one of the NFL's most polarizing and often ridiculed primetime slots, said station led their newscast by declaring that the Texans had won -- without realizing that it could have potentially gone the other way.

* On a related note, Augusta's CBS affiliate skipped the post-game show of the championship game so they could go right to local news. While it sounds benign on paper, that also meant that viewers didn't get to see the traditional [[AwardBaitSong "One Shining Moment"]] closing montage, which is a tournament tradition unlike any other (besides the reminders that The Masters are just a few days away, of course).
