Confusion re THE DICK CAVETT SHOW

This is how Wikipedia breaks down the various versions of THE DICK CAVETT SHOW.



IMDb has four versions:



The 1968 series seems to encompass the first three ABC versions. The episodes listed go from 1968 to 1974, but then there's a single stray episode from 1977, which must belong to a different series.



I tried to move the stray episode to the 1975-1991 series, but the submission was rejected:

But now that I see the breakdown on Wikipedia I'm wondering why we have a series that goes from 1968-1974 (or to 1977 if you count the stray episode); a second that goes from 1975 to 1991, a third that does not have a closing date, but only has episodes from 1986; and a fourth that goes from 1989 to 1996.




I'm confused.

Hi J. -

I have filed a ticket for our Editorial team to review these separate series listings and determine the proper way to display the series, either separately as per each Network release or combined under a single TV series title page.  As soon as I have an update on the status I will confirm the details here.
