Szysznyk (Pronounced SIZ-nik) was an short-lived American television series produced by Paramount Network Television, originally broadcast on CBS during the 1977-78 television season, and starring Ned Beatty as Nick Szysznyk. Only ten episodes were aired.
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".)
