'Outlander' isn't on the 'Top Rated TV Shows' chart all though it should be according to the rating. This is the second time I'm telling you this. Honestly I don't really see the point of IMDb if the information is wrong.

This is covered here -> https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/track-movies-tv/ratings-faq/G67Y87TFYYP6TWAV?ref_=helpsect_cons_2_4#included

According to the rating, a title should be included in the Top Rated Movies / Top Rated TV Shows. Why isn't it included? Only votes from regular IMDb voters (i.e. people who regularly vote on IMDb) are considered when generating the Top Rated Movies and Top Rated TV Shows lists. In addition to that, a title must have received a minimum amount of votes (currently 25,000) in order to appear in one of these lists. For details on how these lists are determined, please navigate to the list and scroll to the bottom.

To maintain the effectiveness of the Top Rated Movies and Top Rated TV Shows lists, we do not disclose the criteria used for an IMDb user to be counted as a regular voter.

OK, thanks for the link.

Outlander has 92 254 votes. It does seem to me that IMDb chooses the top list them self instead of basing it on votes from members. Which is their right of course, but it makes the top lists uninteresting.
