    There's a suburb in Melbourne near me that gets mispronounced by non-locals all the time. It's Prahran, pronounced 'puhr-anne', but people who don't know say 'puhr-arne'. Just sounds so wrong! But I forgive them if they're not from here, right after I correct them

    I'm just saying there is likely different valid pronunciations. But from reading the responses in this thread, it seems to be a place name which you are talking about, which is likely to have one accepted pronunciation.
    Not JUST a TV show! We're talking Grey's Anatomy here. Tsk tsk.

    A TV show...

    NO?! Surely not?

    Sunrise, being wrong?!

    Unheard of.

    I lost my faith in Sunrise when their piece on "vicious killer pitbulls" had a video of a bull terrier, and they harped on about their "unique locking jaws" and "once they get the taste of human blood"
    Bunch of nitwits
