Umm.. when should it be from?

Our Most Popular charts use data from the search behavior of IMDb's more than 250 million monthly unique visitors to rank the hottest, most buzzed about movies and TV shows.

Mmm ... that's funny. Please somebody put make some effort reading my words. The list make from TV series is  from 27 July, not the current week that started on 3 august. Read very carefully: every Monday, is published a new list: Actors, Movies, TV Series. This week, which started on 3 August. The person responsible with publishing the list LET 'Top 100 Most Popular TV Shows' exactly the same 2 weeks in a row. I personally check the movements from these lists every Monday.

It seems that according to https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/chart chart =  'the lists produced each week of the records ...'

You can find it anywhere because nobody cares. I imagine that somebody is paid to update/ actualize the informations on IMDB, but nobody can track his work, if he/she did it correctly or not. How this is possible?! Yeah, yesterday is history ... old news. I'm 99,99 % sure that Monday it will be another order for TV series.

Every computer has it master...

Why didn't you confirm what I've been thinking myself 3 hours ago? Rhetorically, why did I worked a whole year to win a IMDB account, if what I don't get accurate informations? What it takes is to see any TV series like https://pro.imdb.com/title/tt8210856/?ref_=instant_tt_1&q=cursed. It isn't moved for 2 weeks.
Anyway, it happened before https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/top-imdb-100-most-popular-movies
Thank you all for your day and may this talk be useful to others.

Win an IMDb account? What are you going on about? I wasn’t aware that everyone here won a contest to make our accounts

Ah, you didn't know? I, for my IMDB contributions from last year, I got 124th place and a IMDB PRO membership. My mistake, IMDB Pro. Anyway, why everyone answers are anything but the real one: What happened with the update to the TV series? All I wonder why the IMDB needs it users and a user don't receive the updated informations? Please, please, don't answer unless it's about the real problem: the correct update to TV series.

Here's how that list appeared on 27Jul:

The first few do look the same. I didn't check the whole thing.
Here's the Advanced Title Search version, which has a different #1:

Finally, you understand. That's what I was trying to say. The list with TV series wasn't refreshed this week. Monday will be another.
Really? https://m.imdb.com/chart/tvmeter?ref_=m_nv_tv_tvm is the same thing with https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=tv_series&view=simple

No, the ATS
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=tv_series&view=simple
 is NOT the same result as the chart
https://m.imdb.com/chart/tvmeter?ref_=m_nv_tv_tvm
because
1. The Umbrella Academy (2019– )

If the chart is only updated on Mondays, the ATS could be different frequently, because ATS is dynamic.

Umbrella Academy makes sense as Season 2 was released about a week ago. I just completed it yesterday myself.

Decent show, btw. Sometimes a bit too quirky for my tastes.

https://m.imdb.com/chart/tvmeter?ref_=m_nv_tv_tvm  Is it dynamic, changeable by week or not? According to web.archive.web it is.

Hi all -

I have filed a ticket for the appropriate technical team to investigate, once I have a status update on the Chart I will let you know here.

It seems that one of the biggest secrets for IMDB users is not knowing who is responsible for the correct updates of 'Top 100 IMDB actors / actress, movie and series': a human or a computer ...

This is just a observation. Please don't reply to it. This week, again, IMDB platform didn't update the 'Most Popular TV Shows' as determined by IMDb Users. It seems nobody cares, but me. I wonder that's necessary the creation of a topic named 'IMDB malfunctions' ...

Hi la_vinia!

 

I, for one, care about it. In fact, I was about to start a new thread. When I typed "Most Popular TV Shows" in the box, I found about your thread.

 

There is something strange going on with TV Shows chart recently. Last week (on Monday 14th) the chart did not update at all. The same data from previous week (Monday 7th) stayed for the whole week.

 

This week it seems like it got updated. However, it says "no change" for every title on the chart. So we cannot figure out the chart position for last week.

 

I agree with you. I wish we knew who is responsible for updating these charts, so that we could drop him/her a message, when the script fails.

Whoa! Three in a row. Bingo! It's the third week in which Top 100 TV Series wasn't updated. I don't know if I want to know why this problem remains unanswered. If this topic gets more comments, maybe than an IMDB employee will take some positive measures.  Should we write to Mr. Col Needham?

@Lavinia

 

As far as I know, the charts get updated in the early hours of Monday morning (US time). So we have to wait a little bit more, before jumping to conclusions.

OK, this is really curious:

 

"Most Popular Movies" chart was updated, but "Most Popular TV Shows" was not.

 

To whom do we report this?
