It is not always readily apparent to me what network a series is on when searching the IMDb.com website. Would you please emphasize this information for every series listed?

That would be wonderful- one of my pet peeves as well.  I see a TV show and then can never find what channel it's on.  I end up leaving IMDb and googling the show.

they only seem to have the tv schedule if the show is scheduled in the next few days.  Under the "More" pulldown menu, there is a tv listing, it would be nice to have the network listed there.  As it is, you have to look under Company Credits, which isn't intuitive to me.  I just looked up Stranger Things, and it took me a while to find it plays on Netflix.  
Thanks for the tip of adding /tvschedule to the URL.  but again, that only seems to work if a show is in the middle of it's season.

As you know TV shows may start on netowrks NBC, CBS, ABC... (in the USA)
then reboradcast on other non net work stations
and may no longer be the main networks
Listing all the non network staions may be a ... problem


IMDb has made many changes recently and will have more in 2018

Take a look at Announcements section

Maybe more members will reply here

Maybe the staff will read this
