‘They’re playing the wrong one!’ Embarrassing ABC blunder sees broadcaster air LAST WEEK’S episode of Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell – as the host labels them ‘idiots’
Comedian Shaun Micallef was left baffled on Wednesday night when the ABC played the wrong episode of his show, Mad As Hell.
The 56-year-old veteran broadcaster took to Twitter during the show’s airing time to confirm the embarrassing blunder.
‘My wife is ringing the ABC switchboard. I rang ITV. Hopefully we’ll at least get the right one up on iView,’ he bemoaned, mentioning it was a good episode.

‘It’s a good episode too. Nice and topical. Maybe they’ll play it next week,’ Shaun said, adding the hashtags ‘#madashelltv’ and ‘#idiots’.
The Have You Been Paying Attention host joked: ‘Trying to get the correct episode up on iView now so you can switch over. Tried ringing the switchboard but Peter Dutton answered so I hung up.’
Eventually he told fans: ‘I’ve just heard from the ABC and they’ve just confirmed that they’re playing the wrong episode. Thank God. I thought I was going crazy…’
Funnily enough the episode’s repeat made the program trend on Twitter, alongside MasterChef and The Drum.
