Maybe it would be useful to have all "Survivor" seasons in one place ? All seasons are in diffirent pages now.

Hi Joh,
Thanks for the suggestion! We've gone back and forth with shows like Survivor - it's a tough call when it's the same "family" of shows but with all different titles and themes. For organization's sake, we've opted to make a separate page for shows with different (sub)titles like the Survivor seasons. Sorry for the confusion!

why is it so difficult to group all the survivor seasons under one title, then name each "season" with the location?

IE:

Survivor: (20 seasons)
1. Borneo 
2. Australia - The Outback
3. etc...

It's extremely dumb to have each season listed as an individual season when there are over 20 of them to look for.

stop being stubborn and listen to the fans of your site.

Hi John,

We understand your frustration! Unfortunately, being stubborn is not really the issue. Our data provider organizes each season of Survivor as separate show, which makes it very difficult for us to simply combine it into one show.

However, we do understand your issue and are considering ways to address it.

organisation?? i'm confused what is unorganized about having a category labelled Survivor and each season tab named : Survivor : Borneo - Survivor : Australia and so forth....

Is the format of season 1 season 2 season 3 more important then finding a way to compile all the episode of ONE single show into ONE single page? XDD

Why aren't all the survivor seasons under one survivor title?

group survivor season together as 1 show.


Is it an idea to put all the survivor seasons together? I noticed there is a show "survivor", but it has no seasons. And then you have show named "survivor: *season name*", why are those not just grouped together like the amazing race?
I'm willing to do that, but I first wanted to make sure that's ok.
I can provide names of all episodes and hopefully links too.

Why isn't all the different seasons of Survivor consolidated under one title so that you don't have to individually track each season separately?

One page combine for survivor, real world and the challenge!.


hello! i'm a big fan of survivor, the real world and the challenge and unfortunatly on SideReel each shows has its own page per season so basically everytime a new season comes around instead of just keeping it tracked i have to hunt down the new page. It would be GREAT if thos 3 shows could just all be compiled into one neat little page that i can track once!

Just another request to put all the Survivor seasons under one page. It's incredibly dumb and user-unfriendly to have multiple pages for a single show.

If it absolutely HAS to be this way, then the most recent season should be the first result shown when searching for the show. I had to go to Google to remember what the season name is, then go back to Sidereel to search for it again. Frustrating all around.

Just wondering if there is a way to have all the seasons of Survivor linked. Every season I have to remember to search for it as if it's a new show, & it'd be really nice if my tracker just remembered for me.

I can't believe that this is still an issue. In the 4.5 years that this topic has been open, no user in this thread has agreed that keeping all Survivor seasons separate is a good idea. It's not as if each season is a spinoff (like, for example, Married at First Sight and Married at First Sight: The First Year - which is correctly listed separately on Sidereel), it's literally all the same show.

Hi Jess,

This is definitely a problem we'd like to resolve, but as we've mentioned above, it is primarily an issue with our data source.

A year and a half ago, I suggested that at the very least, when searching for Survivor, the most recent season should be first on the search results. Is there any logical reason that a show called Survivors from 1975 should be first, a British show canceled after one episode is second, and another show called Survivors (with an ending S) be third before you even get to one season of the correct Survivor in question? And it's a season from over five years ago. The most current season of Survivor doesn't show up in search results until page 4. You may not be able to upgrade to a better ~data source~, but I think your devs should be competent enough to be able to fix search results on their own website.

Hi Jess,

We are actually working on improving search right now! We hope to make the improvements live in the next few weeks.

As to consolidating reality shows, it is on our list to do, but it is both a nasty merge and maneuvering around our data sources and mapping infrastructure. However, everyone is in agreement that the current state is not ideal and should be fixed.

Has anything changed on this front in a year?  I was just coming to post the same request and found this thread.

Thanks for your enquiry. There are no current plans to undertake that merger at this time.

Thanks for the reply.  I'm sure it is difficult from a technical side, but it sure would be nice.  If you watch many seasons of Survivor they start cluttering up the list.

Just as an update to anyone following this thread, we have now merged Survivor into one season: http://www.sidereel.com/tv-shows/survivor. If you have witnessed all of the individual seasons disappear from your tracker, do not be alarmed - you should now be automatically tracking the main page. We will be working on merging additional reality shows moving forward!

I see that this has been merged, which is great. It is showing up in my tracker calendar, but not in my tracked shows list below my calendar. I have attempted logging out and then back in as well as untracking and then tracking the show page again each with no change. Can you recommend a fix or is this a known issue? Thanks.

Now that this has happened (which I think is great), can it happen to some other "reality" shows?  Like Big Brother for example.
