Closed Captioning FAIL

Often when closed captioning text is on for a program, the text from one segment stays on screen when a show goes to another segment, or to a commercial.  That would explain what I saw this morning at the gym on ESPN.

When I looked up at the TV on the wall, I saw this text, apparently from a report they had just finished airing: “Rest in peace, Kevin McKinley.  Our condolences to your family.”  McKinley was a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos who was found dead earlier this week. 

But the text stayed on display during the commercials, including one for the new horror movie Buried, about a man who is tortured by being buried alive. 

Actually, depending on your sense of humor, this one might be a win.
