I tried to do this, as I normally would, through the help desk but the response was odd and they removed all the data from the episode but left the actual episode there. Here's the email from the help desk:

Hi there,

Thank you for your message.

I have submitted a correction to remove all filmography from this episode, as a re-run it should be treated as a shell episode, keeping the episode number and keeping the airings inline but without duplicating credits. If no problems are encountered this should update online within 24 hours on all platforms.

To help us keep this episode this way you can always add a plot outline and trivia item detailing the re-run and point users to the correct original episode.

Please don't hesitate to let us know via the Contact Form should you have any additional queries.

This response makes no sense to me. IMDb does not add new episodes every time a previous episode is re-run. That would make no sense. There is no Episode #5.14 of Drunk History. It was a re-run of Drunk History Christmas Special. Someone got confused and added this new episode instead of realizing it was a re-run. This was understandable. I nearly did the same thing before finding out that it had already aired. Drunk History Season 5 ended in July 18. It doesn't make sense that there would be a random episode airing in December.

Can we get a staff member to look at this and delete this episode? Season 6 is starting next week and having this extraneous episode looks odd in the episode list.
