New and improved importer with a major data update

By Lemon - Feb 16, 2016

We are happy to announce that we deployed our latest big update to our importer. We've rewritten the worker from the ground up and made it faster & much smarter. Resulting in more consistent airdates and less duplicate episodes.

During our scheduled maintenance downtime, we've run the full importer up-front. During this initial import, 189.772 episodes for a total of 5.782 tv shows were updated, including fixes to airdates, episode titles or even complete new episodes that where missing.

What is next?

We will continue improving the new importer and monitor its performance very closely during the next days/weeks. Next up, we will start going through the shows that were put in review by our importer. These are shows that have conflicting data and are in need for a manual review.

The importer is not yet fully migrated to the thetvdb.com data service. For example, new TV Shows are still not detected, this is currently a slow manual process. There is a work in progress version of a community driven contribution system which we hope to be releasing before the summer.

Final words

Lastly, I want to thank all you for sticking with us during this major transition phase to another data service! Without our loyal user base, followmy.tv wouldn't be here today.

@lemon

Is there a way where we can add new shows manually? In stead of spamming you with these requests...

I want to add 'Last Chance U'.

@Denk Same. I've made a list in 2 posts bellow (because I couldn't fit them all on one post) of 30 odd TV show's that aren't even on the database, Let alone all the many shows I follow on here that still aren't updating!

They get a bump, couple of weeks later, they don't update again.

It's not far off a year now that this site stopped working. information is very hard to come by. I really am trying hard to stick with this site, but the missing shows are increasing by the weeks.

Edit: Just counted them. 39 TV shows and counting, on my list of totally missing shows.

It pains me to say, but I believe we might have to switch to another site...
I've tried to contact someone at followmytv via e-mail, but haven't got any reply at all. Neither do I see any replies to this post and no update in 6 months... RIP?

@PippoInzaghi Definitely. One of the highest rated, most talked about shows around, and it's still not on the Database.

Could you update episode 11 of season 4 of Vikings. It says it aired, but it's airing in the fall.

Note that when I try to paste the link to the TVDB listing of this show it gets corrupted.
