Citing a “network programming timing error,” CBS apologized for cutting the concert special short during its first airing on April 14 and announced that the special would re-air later this week.

“A network programming timing error ended last night’s Billy Joel special approximately two minutes early in the eastern and central time zones,” reads the statement, which Joel posted on X on Monday. “We apologize to Mr. Joel, his fans, our affiliated stations, and our audience whose viewing experience was interrupted during the last song. Due to the overwhelming demand from his legion of fans, BILLY JOEL: THE 100TH – LIVE AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN will be rebroadcast in its entirety on CBS on April 19th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.”

How to Watch Billy Joel’s Madison Square Garden Special

Billy Joel: The 100th — Live at Madison Square Garden premieres Friday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. The two-hour special, celebrating Joel’s 100th show at the famed venue, will also stream live on Paramount+.

No cable? You can watch CBS and other networks on DirecTV, Sling TV, and Fubo TV. Additionally, Paramount+ with Showtime includes live access to CBS.

DirecTV and Fubo offer free trials – a nice option if you don’t want to pay out of pocket. Plans start at $69.99 for DirecTV Stream and $79.99 for Fubo. Both platforms include DVR recording and over 75 live channels, including sports and entertainment channels.

Sling TV’s streaming plans start at $20 for the first month to stream over 30 channels. Sling TV offers CBS in select regions.

Another free option: Paramount+ with Showtime is free for the first month and $11.99 per month, after the trial period ends. The platform combines Paramount+ and Showtime – which means double the streaming possibilities — and you have the option of streaming Paramount+ on Prime Video.

Joel resumed his Madison Square Garden residency in January. The final show is scheduled for July 25. Get tickets here.
