FFS, TV companies – learn to spell!

Posted on March 5, 2012 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

So I'm watching an episode of The Almighty Johnsons on SyFy last week, when what pops up at the end:

The Almighty Johnsons Epsiode

Do you want a sneak peek of next week's 'epsiode' (sic)? No, me neither.

Anyway, I assume that's a one-off. But I'm watching Kung Fu on CBS Action not half an hour later and what do I see?

Kung Fu Episdoe

Yes, there's going to be a new 'episdode' (sic) tonight.

Episode: it's not a hard word to spell. It's the kind of word that you'd think TV networks would have to be able to spell correctly on frequent occasions, it being quite vital to their business. So why can't they spell it correctly?
