The producers of "Wheel of Fortune" have apologized for airing an episode on Monday in which the answer to one of the puzzles was "The Fast and the Furious". 

This was NOT an attempt to cash in on the death of Paul Walker two days earlier.  Host Pat Sajak explained on Twitter, quote, "Feel terrible about timing of 'Fast & Furious' puzzle tonight. 

"[Episode] taped long ago & went out to 200 local stations days ago." 

The show added, quote, "The hearts of everyone at Wheel of Fortune go out to the family, friends & fans of Paul Walker."
