What happens if you can't find the show on imdb.com?

I wanted to suggest this Franklin show (new on AppleTV), but that is NOT any of the "Franklin" options that come up on "verify show." I can't select the correct one and there isn't a "write something in" option.

I’ve contacted the mods for this before, but then whatever show it was appeared a day later, your show has too.

Hm, I guess I wasn't clear on what I meant: I know the show is on IMDB with that link, but when I suggested it yesterday and just now, I got these listings:

Franklin imdb
Franklin & Bash imdb
Benjamin Franklin imdb
Eleanor and Franklin imdb
Benjamin Franklin imdb
Franklin and Friends imdb
The Joe Franklin Show imdb
The Lives of Benjamin Franklin imdb
BBQ with Franklin imdb
La Reina de Franklin imdb

However, the top Franklin is a different show than what I was intending. The newer Franklin doesn't come up in the search as an option. Therefore I'm wondering if it's an issue with Metafilter or just IMDB?

I thought if you pasted in the IMDB url it would take it? I think that's what I did with Fallout, which suffered the same issue of too many "Fallout"s

I don't have the option to do that for a TV show, apparently. I tried plugging in the IMDB URL for making my Argylle post and that worked, but there's no TV show URL plug in option.

What happens if I try to post Franklin:
* New Post, TV
* Show - type in Franklin, nothing comes up
* under that: "(Show not listed? Suggest one.)" I follow the link.
* instead of typing the show name, I paste the link in and hit enter or click "Verify"
* the show appears, selected, and I can select "Suggest This Show"
* I did this just now; I'd check back in a day or so

I got a MefiMail from loup:
> Your suggestion, Franklin has been added to FanFare. You can post about it now. Thanks!

Go for it, jenfullmoon!

Thank you! I'm about to leave the house but will hopefully get to it later :) (Unless anyone else watched it and wants to start it while I'm out, anyway.)
