I've never really thought about it before, but it always seems that big-name TV show episodes are up-to-date, and sometimes ahead of the press releases. Is that purely user submissions, or does some of that happen automatically?

Some production companies provide information to IMDb directly.

It's not necessarily user submissions, but it's not "automatic" either. For some television series, sometimes the network or production company submits the cast, crew, plot outline, and/or other information to IMDb before the broadcast.
