So I'm watching DisneyXD right now and they aired "The House of the Lucky Gander!" instead of "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks". Do we need to change "The House of the Lucky Gander!" to episode 6? The site below still lists "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks" as airing before "The House of the Lucky Gander!" so I didn't want to make the change without input.

The numbering of the episodes actually corresponds with the date they actually aired it. Looks like they just put the wrong air dates with each of the two episodes.

The whole show should be revised at the end of the month I think since Disney completely mixed up the episode numbering: https://twitter.com/FrankAngones/status ... 4147545089.

In the end only the aired order matters. They will have to be reordered accordingly.

Honest question: so if a tv station screws up on their end, you still stick to that? It makes more sense to me to stick to the creators intended episode order to have the best user experience. Or am I opening a very old discussion here? (honestely not trying to, just curious)

It is in an old discussion. Aired order is simply that. Doesn't matter what was intended.

It's not an invalid point, this is why Absolute Order was introduced in the first place.

DVD Order can function as a surrogate requiring no renaming, as it's most likely the DVDs will use the intended order, but this is not always true.
