Can the network/station that a tv show is on be added to the page??

I watch a LOT of stuff on NetFlix because I don't have cable. Some of the shows I've watched have only some of the seasons. I have to Google to find out what network or tv station the show is on so I can watch current episodes. Can the networks/tv stations be added to the show description so it's easier to find here instead of having to search elsewhere?

This would not be easy. IMDb is a world-wide site, and TV shows are on different stations in different countries, and may also be on several channels in one location.

As a quick example, The Daily Show is shown on Comedy Central in the US at 23:00 (Eastern) Mon-Thurs, but in Canada  it is on the Comedy Network at the same time and also on CTV at 00:05 (local time) Tues-Fri.

Adding the correct data to each TV Series (or Episode) depending on the location would require significant processing.

For first-run non-syndication shows the network the program airs on is listed as a distributor on the title's page. 

So on a title's page look in the Quick Links section -> Explore More -> Company Credits.

There you'll find the distributor by country.  For example, Game of Thrones.

For shows in syndication, that can air on different networks depending on the part of the country they're in, I think that the usual practice is to just list the syndicator.
