Originally scheduled to air at 8 p.m. Saturday on ESPN2, the documentary about the Martin Luther King High School Cougars football team will be shown on that network tonight.

On Saturday, ESPN shifted “We Could Be King” to its ESPN News channel to make room for coverage of controversial, racist statements attributed to Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

The station ran an ongoing announcement of the channel change during that coverage, but that didn’t afford people who had set the program to record the chance to update their DVRs or similar devices.

“We Could Be King,” which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday, will air tonight at 9 p.m. on ESPN2 (Xfinity: 16, 851; FiOS: 74, 574; DirecTV: 209; Dish: 144).
