@lisa or @tiphanee other returning shows have been added to "new shows" so i thought i'd flag this one for you

Manifest - 'Fasten Your Seatbelts' - 9HD Gold Coast, 11:00pm, Thu, 4 Mar 2021, 50 minutes - Season 2 Episode 1

@lisa or @tiphanee?

I didn't think that all new shows were automatically (or even routinely) put into the IceTV New Shows list. I thought that it was more to reflect what the team thought people would be most interested in.

That is correct.  We don't flag every new series.

Personally I think you should ... that's the point of "New/Returning Series".

I could even be done automagically when a new series or season is added to the IceTV DB.

Yes, sorry. I should have said "new series", not "new shows".

Hi  BazzaG,

If we automated it, apart from using more developer time, it would grab all sorts of rubbish like cartoons (personal opinion!) and the list would be horribly long and a pain to wade through. If we tried to filter it I could see even more developer time😬.  When we finally get this nightmare database update debugged down to getting repeat flags correct, on every obscure show on every channel across every region in Australia, the guide team will have a bit more time to plow through whatever’s coming up and, if the series are attractive to a decent size of our audience, they’ll add them.

BTW - our Most Popular list on the website gives a good idea of what is really popular and, far down at the bottom, what may be only viewed by a very small number of subscribers.

@prl as manifest was in yesterdays weekly email you would think that it would have been on the new shows page?

Yes, probably, but I don't know in any detail how the system is supposed to work.
