Szysznyk (Pronounced SIZ-nik) is a short-lived American television series produced by Paramount Network Television. Originally broadcast on CBS as a summer replacement series, five episodes were aired during August of 1977, followed by ten more during the 1977-78 television season. The series starred Ned Beatty as Nick Szysznyk.
The ongoing punchline of the show was that other people, particularly those meeting Szysznyk for the first time, almost invariably mispronounced his surname. (In one episode, a detective called him "Sneeze-wick".)
