Hi there,

Would it be possible to remove the duplicate shows for Morecambe and Wise?

The correct shows are

Morecambe and Wise Show (1968)
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/the-more ... -show-1968
Morecambe and Wise Show (1978)
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/morecamb ... -show-1978

There are additional entries for the same shows here:
A combination of all the different shows Morecambe and Wise did
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/the-more ... -wise-show
A combination of all the Christmas specials from both their shows and the ninth season of their 68 show
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/morecambe-and-wise
A combination of all the Christmas specials from both their shows:
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/morecamb ... s-specials
A copy of the Morecambe and Wise show 1978 missing seasons 2, 3 and 4:

Thanks for this!
Out of the four duplicates you reported, I've deleted the last three.
As for the first one, its IMDB ID refers to 1961's Two of a Kind, for which I couldn't find a record in TheTVDB. (I mean, there's this, but it's all but blank.)
The record seems to include all five seasons of Two of a Kind, so maybe I should leave it, rename it and delete all the following seasons?

I think that makes the most sense, yes

Thanks!

Actually, this record:
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/the-more ... -wise-show
(ID 70664)

…has episode images and titles that are missing in the others:
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/the-more ... -show-1968
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/morecamb ... -show-1978

Would you care to compare the records and maybe copy over the titles and images, so I can delete all the seasons after Season 6 and rename #70664 to "Two of a Kind"?

Right, I'll get on it

in the meantime it looks like someone has added an episode 0 to the first season which is a duplicate of one of the specials:
