Trying to merge two duplicate TV series pages

I have had a difficult time merging two duplicate TV series pages.

I have tried it a few different ways, but can't seem to get the merger approved. Here are a couple sample contribution numbers:

#221124-220825-466000 

#221203-023111-105000 

Could staff please complete the merger?

This title: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8865168/reference/

Should be merged into this title: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8861538/reference/

And if anyone knows of a proven method for getting a TV series merger approved, I would love to hear about it.

Hey keyword_expert-

 

I think the submissions contain a Title correction rather than a merge. I have now merged the titles as requested though. 

 

Cheers!

Thank you!

I think the submissions contain a Title correction rather than a merge. 

Don't all title merges start out as Title corrections? That seems to be what these instructions say.

https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/how-can-i-merge-two-titles/GAL233TVTCPMLVDK?ref_=helpart_nav_17#

To submit a correction, you should use the 'Title Correction' option to change the title of one to the second. For example, if you know that the pages for Untitled XYZ Project (2006) and The ABC Movie (2006) refer to the same film, you would go to the page for Untitled XYZ Project (2006), click on the Edit Page button at the bottom of the page, select the 'Title Correction' option and change the title of the film to The ABC Movie (2006). This will result in a merge of the two titles.

Plus, I have successfully merged titles before using this method. However, it is a lot harder when I try to use this method to merge TV series.
