Your Captioner At Work

I just watched Entourage with the closed captioning on. (I forgot to turn it off from earlier.)

There were several references to Brian's Song (1971) in the episode. Now Brian's Song may be somewhat old, but it's one of the best-loved made-for-TV movies ever. It was nominated for a bunch of Emmys and won "Outstanding Single Program, Drama or Comedy" that year. In fact, it was so popular it was released theatrically.

So what's the deal with the captioning company? Every time it was referenced, the person in charge wrote Ryan's Song.
