Many NBC affiliates refused to air a reunion special of sitcom "30 Rock" on Thursday night. That's because the special also served as an advertisement for NBC's new streaming service, Peacock, which allows viewers to bypass local stations to watch NBC shows for free.

NPR TV critic Eric Deggans explains the controversy and gives his perspective on so-called "cancel culture."

This segment aired on July 17, 2020.
