REPORTER FAIL!!!

Matthew Perry CONGRATULATED

For Show Being Cancelled!

5/13/2013 7:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



File this under, "EPIC FAILURE BY A SIDELINE REPORTER!"

Here's the setup ... reporter spots Matthew Perry at the L.A. Kings game on Friday night, hours after NBC made a huge announcement about Perry's show, "Go On."

Reporter decides to CONGRATULATE Perry on the announcement, LIVE on the air.

Problem is ... the announcement was that NBC had CANCELLED the show (whoops!).

What ensues is nothing short of HILARITY.

"You know, the show that I was doing was really getting in the way of Kings games," Perry deadpanned.

Brilliant.

Props to Awful Announcing & Danny Deraney for finding this gem.

This will be the reporter's audition tape to show
that he's just dumb enough to be a host on
Fox & Friends. Congrats in advance, buddy.

Reporter is either a moron or has an axe to grind with Matt. I thought Matt was quite the gentleman, considering. Would love to hear the conversation after the cameras went off, though. Kudos to Matt for continuing to work, even though after Friends, I'm sure he never has to work again. He works because he loves acting.

I am not 100% sure the reporter was not joking with him as a friend. He did say they had played hockey together in the past.

Matthew Perry has had a string of bombs since friends. He's nothing special and should stick to guest spots,he's not an A lister on his own and neither are any of the other stars from "Friends"!

This was a set up from Perry. The 2 have known each other for a long time and have played in a bunch of celebrity games together.

Perry could've sold it a little better.
