Pew News shouldn't be in the IMDb top 250 TV list

Pew News, a series that 96.6% of "viewers" gave a perfect 10/10 score, has entered the IMDb top 250 TV list because it just received 5000 votes. I know IMDb filters out other series with abnormally high ratings as a result of trolling, so is there anyway to get this one properly removed.

PewDiePie has an enormous fanbase, and they're probably the only ones aware of the series, which means it only gets high ratings. (Meanwhile, PewDiePie's channel, which is treated on IMDb as a series, has a 6.4/10 rating because both his fans and his haters are aware of it.)

I'd define "trolling" in this context as an attempt to give a show an artificially high rating as a joke. I'm not sure that's what is happening. I'm not familiar with the show, but I'm sure PewDiePie's fans genuinely like it.

I think you're absolutely right about this. Also, I don't care for PewDiePew and therefore won't watch it. But if I don't watch it, I feel I can't rate it, which leaves only the high rates...

Hi Alex,

All we can say about voting is covered in this guide. https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/track-movies-tv/ratings-faq/G67Y87TFYYP6TWAV?ref_=helpsrall#

Changing demographics are the explanation for all this, I guess.
