The Joe Rogan Experience - Episode numbers

Joe Rogan numbers each episode of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience; his latest episode is #1113.

IMDb has a peculiar way of representing these numbers. On IMDb, a "season" of Rogan's show is a set of one-hundred episodes. For example, episode #1097 is listed on IMDb as 10.97 (i.e., season ten, episode ninety-seven).

Here's the pattern:

Episode #200 is listed as 2.0.
Episode #201 is listed as 2.1.
Episode #299 is listed as 2.99.
Episode #300 is listed as 3.0.
Episode #301 is listed as 3.1.
Episode #399 is listed as 3.99.

And so on.

The exception is season one. Season one contains the first 199 episodes. Here's the pattern:

Episode #1 is listed as 1.1.
Episode #2 is listed as 1.2.
Episode #99 is listed as 1.99.
Episode #100 is listed as 1.100.
Episode #199 is listed as 1.199.

In other words, the first 199 episodes are numbered correctly on IMDb. But the actual show does not have seasons, and so every episode beginning with #200 is listed in the database incorrectly.

I want to add episode #1113, but I don't know whether I should add it with the correct number (1.1113) or if I should just follow the pattern already set, and number it 11.13.

More to the point: Should all the episode numbers starting with #200 be changed, or should they be preserved in the current pattern for convenience sake?
