If you were surprised to suddenly miss the last 20 minutes of Chicago Med, Tucker Carlson Tonight or The Masked Singer just now on the East Coast, join the DirecTV club. As America hunkers down at home for what looks to be the first full week of coronavirus enforced isolation, the AT&T-owned satellite service tonight went dark for a spell at around 8:45 PM ET across the nation.

Though you may have missed discovering who the celebrity voice under the Swan was on Wednesday’s episode of Masked Singer, hashtag #DirecTVDown never really had time to catch fire on social media as the service seemed to reboot at the top of the hour. Still, for those long 15 minutes or so, things were looking pretty bleak for tonight’s primetime.DirecTV Goes Dark For A Spell As America Hunkers Down At Home Over Coronavirus — Deadline
