Argh. This so annoys me. They ping contestants on Jeopardy! all the time for mispronouncing (Oh, I'm sorry, but you added a T...) ... but only when Alex (and/or the judges) catches it.

And given Alex's well-known trouble with Russian... like pronouncing ukase as "you case". (Certainly not in Russian, but Merriam-Webster says the A is like the o in mop or the a in ash. And it's a Z, not an S... which is coincidental with my main point, which is:

They are NOT the Brothers Karamatsov. They are the Brothers Karamazov. Z. Z. Z!

Did you miss the other day when Alex -- authoritatively, of course -- gave the Latin pronunciation of "Julia" as "Hulia" (when it should've been Yulia")?
