BET special fails to air Sunday night

Monday, December 20, 2010; 12:44 AM

Do not adjust your television sets: The BET special celebrating the network's 30th anniversary scheduled for Sunday evening was nowhere to be found. The show, "BET 30: Moments and Movements," was supposed to air from 8 to 10 p.m.

An e-mail from a BET press representative sent to The Post at 7:30 p.m., half an hour before the show was to air, said, "It appears that we will not be airing the BET special this evening." No explanation was given.

The BET rep said she would "have the re-air date shortly." The BET Web site was still promoting the Sunday show and a related sweepstakes at 9 p.m., after the show had already been postponed.

The show postponement attracted comments to the BET Web site from upset viewers from around the country. A viewer from Philadelphia wrote, "I'm very disappointed. BET should at least place a notation at the bottom of the [TV] screen with details of when" the show will air.
