I see the alias Earth's Great Rivers on the main series screen: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/earths-great-rivers

I don't see the alias when I search for Earth's Great Rivers: https://www.thetvdb.com/search?query=Ea ... t%20Rivers
or
when I search for Rivers of Life: https://www.thetvdb.com/search?query=Rivers%20of%20Life

I do see aliases when I search for American Horror Story: https://www.thetvdb.com/search?query=american+horror

Is this a bug? A caching issue?

If I search for Rivers of Life now, Earth's Great Rivers comes up as the second result.
The alias isn't visible in the search results for some reason, and I will let the admins know about this. But as long as the alias is searchable, I feel like it's not too critical.

I agree that it's not critical. I wanted to make sure TVDB is aware of the bug.

The more visible the alias is, the better chance a user won't create a duplicate series, again.
