It would seem that the surprise on NBC's Today Show: Countdown to Harry Potter really wasn't a surprise to fans. It was anticipated that Jim Dale would read from the upcoming book Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince but to the disappointment of many he read an excerpt from Order of the Phoenix (which was still enjoyable).
Kids attending the show in New York City had the opportunity to hear Mr. Dale read chapter three, The Advance Guard, from Order of the Phoenix while seated in front of the Half-Blood Prince countdown sign.
