According to moviemistakes.com, The Simpsonshas the most TV mistakes of all time (2,090 in total), while Friends comes third with 1,505 errors.

Sometimes the glaring mistakes actually happen in the promotional material, such as on posters or in trailers.

Although no show can be perfect all of the time, it’s sometimes baffling how some of these mistakes managed to stay in.
