Gotta Watch: TV mishaps

Caught on tape – TV mishaps. There's just something about watching an AWKWARD exchange after the wrong winner is announced in front of millions of people on television that keeps viewers tuned in. Check out these major mishaps, which brought laughs, confusion and questions.

And the winner is – Fittingly, BET chose a fan to announce the winner of the Viewer's Choice Award. The problem was the winner's name in the teleprompter didn't match what she had in her hand. The result was one of the most awkward moments in award show history, partly because it pitted two high-profile ex's against each other.

'This is a complete accident' – What is it about live shows and mixing up the winners' names? One Australian TV host was mortified when she announced the winner of a reality TV model competition, only to realize seconds later, she was wrong.

Worst game show ever? – The most painful mistakes often involve money, like in this 2010 game show clip. This couple just knew they had the answer right. The game show said they didn't – and the man and wife team lost $800,000. But as it turned out later, the couple WAS right and the game show was wrong.

    I'm not really into reality shows. I prefer good sid comes like Friends, Cosby, MASH, Everyone Loves Raymond, or Seinfield.

      Cesar, your post is comical for no other reason than your notion of "sid comes"! Keep them "coming".

    Re. $800,0000 mistake–the statement from Fox admitted that "our research was incomplete..." Incomplete? No, it was WRONG. Can't they even say "We were mistaken; the answer we gave was incorrect"? It annoys me when people/corporations/politicians make statements like this which appear to be admitting fault without actually admitting fault.

    Can those contestants actually launch some kind of legal action against the show?? Surely not, no?

    They should cough up the $800,000. Or heck, if I was the couple, I'd be happy with $400,000. Saying they can play again is ridiculous.
