IMDb considers ideas based on popularity, the difficulty to implement the idea, and the amount of effort and resources it takes to implement and maintain the idea. You can increase the chances of getting your idea implemented by asking your friends, family and associates to vote for your idea in this thread, and by thoughtfully promoting it on social media. There are social media buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social media that you can use to promote your idea. The "+" has a lot more social media.
There used to be a website (http://www.locatetv.com/) that let you put movies & TV episodes on a watchlist and get an email notification when they showed up in any channel listing, like TCM or HBO, etc. they went defunct about a year ago. Would love to add all my 151 movies onto my IMDB watchlist and get a similar notification.
