I know this series has been discussed to death. I'm just after a little clarity on the latest episode, Santa Schmanta - is it s14e23 or s15e01? (It currently appears as both in the database.) Or is it, as the official TBS site seems to think (http://www.tbs.com/shows/american-dad/s ... a-schmanta), s13e08, which makes no sense that I can work out under any numbering scheme?

For some reason someone put the new episode as episode 0 of season 14, even though it's supposed to be set at episode 1 of season 15 (which there is currently already one in place for that) so I am suggesting to delete this episode 0 of season 14 https://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=season&ser ... 3132&lid=7

The Season 14 episode entry was entered first - as 14x23, someone removed the airdate, overwrote it as episode 0 and added a Season 15.

The TBS website has "Santa, Schmanta" as 13x08 which is clearly BS as they also have the last episode to air was listed as 14x22.

Maybe this is a special? I don't know. Either way I've restored the duplicate as 14x23, a mod should probably decide which duplicate to delete?

The latest American Dad! episode "Santa, Schmanta" is listed in both season 14 (https://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&se ... 3065&lid=7) and Season 15 (https://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&se ... 7664&lid=7), clearly this cannot be correct, so could someone please delete the one which is wrong.


Thanks.

Kind regards

Yes. This exactly! I don't know about being a special, and it's a toss up about season 15 or 14. This is why you mods get the big bucks! :D

The policy of taking the official source as gospel does rather run into problems when the official source quite clearly doesn't know what it's doing.

Problem is, the official source also doesn't support either way of doing this (indeed, it would seem they've discontinued their episode guide altogether, further confounding attempts to sort this out). For now, it's 14x23, but it's not out of the question that it may indeed be 15x01 once Season 15 proper gets underway in a couple months.

....and this has been vandalized already. The Xmas Special has been re-added to S15 and an Episode 0 added for seemingly no reason.

Could Season 15 be corrected again please? And can we consider a lock on this, maybe until the new season starts airing to avoid further back-and-forth?

We should keep the season open for additions, as cleanup is relatively straightforward, but the known episodes are now locked pending further confirmation.

Santa, Schmanta is Season 15 Episode 1 based on TBS renewing the show for two 22 episode seasons. Season numbering aside, http://www.turner.com/pressroom/tbs-renews-american-dad
