Episode #34.24 of "This Old House" doesn't appear in the episode listing on IMDbPro:

However, it appears in the 2015 list:
But it's missing the episode number.

The episode page looks fine:

www.imdb.com is correct as well.

If you edit the page to correct the Episode Title / Number, you will see that the right information is present, and thus you can't "correct" it.

Episode #13.24 of "Ask This Old House" doesn't appear in the episode listing on IMDbPro:

However, it appears in the 2015 list:
But it's missing the episode number, and has an incorrect title.

The episode page is also missing the episode number, and has the incorrect title:

However, if you edit the page, the right information is displayed, so there is no way to correct it.

The episode page on www.imdb.com looks okay.

Hi Ron -

Thanks for pointing out this display issue, I was able to replicate this on my end as well.  I have alerted our technical staff who will take a look as soon as they can.

I've also seen situations where changes to the episode number are reflected in the episode page but not in the season summary page - only on Pro and not on the ordinary IMDB site. This may be another manifestation of the above problem.

(Copied from a thread on the Contributors Help message board: http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000042/thread/245316889)

Problem with episode numbering - only on Pro site season summary

Compare the episode numbering on




The numbering on the normal site is as I submitted things, renumbering several episodes from 29.34 onwards to make space for some missing episodes. You've even got the episode number/date for Heart Over Head 29.38 which I only submitted yesterday (though it's too soon for the cast additions that I made to show up).

But on the Pro site, the numbering for the episodes on the Season 29 page is as it was a couple of weeks ago, so there are duplicate numbers where episode numbers have not be updated: there are two episode 29.35 and two 29.36.

It's only the summary page that's out of date: if I click on 29.35 A Moment of Clarity its episode page has the correct value of 29.37; likewise for 29.36 Heart Over Head which has the correct value of 29.38.

(later, in response to a reply "these systems are not identical if you've made updates recently. new titles can show in one but not the other. some updates are faster than other")

I've just checked. I submitted the renumbering of 29.37 -> 29.49 If You Can Bottle It (150604-064733-242000) and 29.41 -> 29.50 Knock Knock Who's There (150604-064621-835000) as long ago as 4 June, so they've had almost three weeks for the two systems to get in sync. It seems that the season summary and the individual episodes on imdb.com and the individual episodes on Pro are correct, so it's only the season summary on Pro that hasn't been updated.

After three weeks, it looks more like a bug than just slow processing.

Another instance I've noted involves the 23rd episode of Season 6 of "Hot In Cleveland".

Pro Episode listing shows the 23rd episode as the 24th, with an incorrect title: https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt1583607/episodes#season=6

The 2015 listing is also incorrect: https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt1583607/episodes#year=2015

But the title page itself is fine: https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt4208286/

The episode listing on regular IMDb is okay: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1583607/episodes?season=6
