Joey Chestnut broke his own record today but unfortunately, viewers at home weren’t able to see much of it.

In the middle of Sunday’s Nathan’s Famous 4th of July hot dog eating contest, ESPN suffered technical difficulties that forced them to abruptly cut to commercials.

The broadcast returned but ESPN was forced to cut away again after losing the signal that kept cutting in and out.

Viewers were unable to see Chestnut eat his 76th hot dog, which broke his previous record of 75, due to a poor signal.

Viewers were angry with ESPN for making them miss Chestnut’s record setting performance on the 4th of July.
