Food Network Star: Specials

Postby guero » Tue Jul 26, 2016 12:14 am

There was a new Food Network Star special that aired yesterday that needs to be added to the specials page. I wrote the overview so it can be included. :)

FNS Specials: http://thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid ... 2842&lid=7

Title: Star Salvation 2
First Aired: 2016-07-24
Production Code: NFSP11ZH
Airs Before: 12x10 - Pushing for a Pilot (2016-07-24)
Overview: Star Salvation is a six-week competition, hosted by Alex Guarnaschelli and Eddie Jackson, that allows eliminated contestants from Food Network Star to prove their worth and for one last chance to re-enter the competition.

Not surprising coming from Food Network (or Scripps in general), the naming of the specials is inconsistent with past episodes. This is the 3rd “Star Salvation” yet it is labeled “2.” ‘Bout right. I would suggest the use of the season in place of the number (i.e. “Star Salvation S12”).

------------

Since this episode is titled with the number two, it’s obvious other specials are missing. We may need to bump some of the specials down to make room for these. Current specials 1 & 2 are placed correctly, the rest would need to be shifted down. I could not find any information for the the missing “NFSP04H” …so, they probably skipped a number. Big surprise.

Anyhow, I will include this information as well:

Holy shit, NO.
I'll take care of the additions, but we don't dick with S00 numbering as every major media center handles that by date.

Thanks for adding those. I now understand the numbering vs date for specials. I'm curious, what was your "NO" in response to? My suggestion of bumping the more recent specials down was only a small fraction of my overall request.

Thanks again.

Sorry about that, it's my personal knee-jerk reaction to seeing any request to reorder S00. We've had the policy against reordering those - as it's overtly disruptive to end-users, and serves only an aesthetic purpose to the site front-end without really helping anyone interfacing with the API - for nearly a decade now, and it gets a little annoying to see it continually revisited.
Nothing personal, of course, just a pet peeve.

I've taken care of most of the rest of the request, though I'm not sure Sneak Peeks should be included as they're essentially recut bits of other episodes; then again, we tend to allow clip shows...

No worries. I try to provide all the sources to back-up my requests and your response struck me as odd. I was unsure whether it was the volume of information I included or the re-numbering suggestion. I get it now and appreciate your response. :)

Yeah, I noticed that with the Sneak Peeks; I included them only because they actually aired on TV and had official production numbers. It's totally your call, though.

Again, thanks for the help!

Just in case you decide to include the "Sneak Peeks" ...I found NFPS04H:

Season 10 Sneak Peek
First Aired: 2014-06-02
Production Code: NFPS04H
Source: http://www.foodnetwork.com/shows/food-n ... -peek.html
Source: http://www.foodnetwork.com/shows/tv-sch ... -6-2E.html

I assume the air date is 2014-06-02 as the schedule shows that "Star Salvation Episode 1" (NFSP05H) aired that day but it wouldn't make much sense to air a "Salvation" show after the first episode. I think this was an error in the schedule.
