Viewers hoping to watch the “60 Minutes” interview with porn star Stormy Daniels were furious that CBS delayed the airing of the interview so they could continue broadcasting the NCAA finals. The Duke vs. Kansas game went into overtime just after the scheduled 7:00 p.m. Eastern airing of the interview was to begin. The highly anticipated interview with Daniels, who allegedly had a consensual affair with President Trump, was expected to draw high ratings for CBS. The network has offered no explanation for the delay, but made repeated announcements during the game teasing the upcoming interview.

For viewers who can’t wait until the game concludes, the transcript of the interview is available online at CBS News.

Update 7:33 p.m.: Kansas beat Duke 81 to 85 to win the Midwest Regional Champion.
