This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Ratings: Show season ratings for TV series.

Since television shows can run for multiple seasons, a single "User Rating" for a TV show is not sufficient. Users should be able to rate each season (year), providing an indication not just for past years but current year, providing a powerful indicator of current popularity, acknowledging ongoing excellence or calling out weaknesses for a particular season. Overall aggregate for all seasons should be shown as well.

I think this has come up before. I think what would be better if the season page pooled the ratings for the episodes in that season.

had considered that but was trying to be sensitive to complexity and tracking requirements considering large number of episodes/seasons

I really think this is a good idea. Think about all the conversations you have with friends about shows and how people talk about "oh season 3 was so good but season 4 sucked". In conversations with others, I've noticed that people either talk about:
  • their opinion of the show as a whole
  • their opinion of the show on a season by season basis
I have heard people talk about their favorite Seinfeld episode etc but I overhear opinions on seasons more than everything else.

I completely agree with the need for Season Rating.
I don't know if the single episodes rating could provide the rating for one season.
I would prefer a single vote for a whole season as something more synthetic which could show easily diference between seasons.
Moreover, not many people use to vote for single episodes and a more flexible way to vote for each season could be a lot better.
