A few months ago it was changed from season numbering to year and it made no sense because nothing changed they were still grouped the same. The series has been changed back to year numbering a couple days ago and I have a feeling it's going to be changed again back to year. While I have your attention the network is wrong too ABC was the first to air them not UKTV Gold it was not even founded until 1992

ABC was not the first to air "The Three Stooges". They have been airing on small independent stations all over America since the early 1960's, if not the 1950's. Don't see how a claim can be made that any one station was the first to air these shorts.

This is from Wikipedia, I know not the best source but this is posted on several sites pertaining to the stooges, what site wrote this first I don't know. Whether this is true or not it should be at least changed to syndication

"A handful of Three Stooges shorts first aired on television in 1949, on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) network. It was not until 1958 that Screen Gems packaged 78 shorts for national syndication;..."

Technically - they were released in theaters first before they were shown on television.
