Not Sure Why Proposed New Title Was Rejected

I've been trying to add "The Bob Hope Mardi Gras Special," which was aired on NBC on 7 March 1973, to the IMDB.  I'm told that the staff cannot "verify the existence of this title and the attached cast and crew," even though I've provided links to:

1. A newspaper article about the special published on the air date (https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=ZFUqAAAAIBAJ&sjid=plMEAAAAIBAJ&pg=7312%2C2695081)

2. A TV listing from a second newspaper (https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=nBFcAAAAIBAJ&sjid=B1UNAAAAIBAJ&pg=3172%2C2421759)

3. An ad for the special from a third newspaper (https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=3L5aAAAAIBAJ&sjid=w1cDAAAAIBAJ&pg=5182%2C1978323)

4. A listing from the Library of Congress indicating that they have a video of the special in their Bob Hope Moving Image Collection (see bottom of page 102) https://findingaids.loc.gov/exist_collections/ead3pdf/mbrsmi/2021/mi021005.pdf 

In addition, I've provided all the minimum information required to support a submission (cast/distributor, etc.).  What more is necessary to prove the existence of this show?

The submission number is #220529-210459-905000
