Viewers watching the NBA playoff games on TNT this past weekend got a big surprise courtesy of Dr. Sandra Lee and her love for pimple popping.
The recent Warner Bros. and Discovery merger means that commercials for TLC programming are now airing on TNT; one of those shows is Dr. Pimple Popper, which ran numerous ads during NBA playoff games on Sunday, leading to some hilarious reactions from sports fans.
"These Dr Pimple Popper ads are going to make me boycott the NBA playoffs," wrote one fan on the Cougar Board forum, while another viewer tweeted, "I pray that whoever ok'd these Dr. Pimple Popper commercials rots forever in the blood oceans of hell."
"TNT becoming Warner Bros. Discovery is rock bottom for commercials during the playoffs lol. get Dr. Pimple Popper the hell out of here," said another Twitter user.

Dr. Pimple Popper is a popular reality show that recently premiered its ninth season on April 5. The show follows dermatologist Dr. Lee as she treats patients with unusual cases of facial and skin disorders and often sees her popping large pimples on camera. Many of those puss-popping moments aired during Sunday's advertisements.
"I will sue you for showing that Dr. Pimple Popper commercial while I was eating!" tweeted one fan, while another added, "Can we stop showing the "Dr Pimple Popper" commercial please. I'm going to throw up."

These next two months of NBA/NHL playoffs on Turner are going to be painful with these Discovery Channel ads (one show in particular). The Discovery half of this partnership really brings down the Warner Bros. half.
