Hi everybody.

No matter which site I check
I see that the current listing on thetvdb.com is wrong. Could you please update it so we can sync it with XBMC and other apps? Because currently I don't want to sync it (I am not the only one, as I could see after searching for this topic). The filenames and NFOs would not match because of this numbering. Why do you only rely on one source (http://www.fox.com/americandad/recaps/s ... /episode-8) when many others say it is wrong?

Thank you for your time and help.

Best regards

You may try and check a valid source http://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=9271 and use the search function. This really has been discussed to death. http://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6308

Hi.

Thanks for your reply. I looked the valid source post and searched for American Dad and also saw my sources proofed.

+ IMDB (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0397306/epi ... t_eps_sn_1): Does not end at Episode 7
+ TVRage (http://www.tvrage.com/American_Dad/episode_list/1): Has 23 Episodes in the first season (like the sources above)
- TVGuide (http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/american ... n-1/191371): is the only one with 7 Episodes (like you have it)

So 2/3 give me right. I know that the American Dad Episode List is confusing (because of so many different lists) but if you provide a valid source list. I guess it is better to use the ones 2/3 use and not only 1/3.

But I may be the only one thinking like that in this case ;)

No there are several people who disagree with Fox, however that doesn't matter. Our listing matches the official episode guide and that's what's important. As I've said a hundred times before... you are welcome to contact Fox and discuss the matter with them, but until their listing changes ours will not. The listing is correct as is an will not be changed.
