Default Will there ever be another TV site again like TV.com?

I would spend hours on that site reading the episode guides for all the sitcoms and looked forward to reading the NOTES and TRIVIA section for each episode

Just found as of July 2021, the site is no longer available on the internet

No, because people are caught up in ďTik TokĒ and Instagram and Facebook and Twitter. Even the latter is starting to decline.

TV.com was originally a site called TV Tome until TV.com purchased it and the TV Tome site was dissolved.

With TV.com now also gone, sites like IMDb and Wikipedia are still around as go to sites for researching TV shows and their episodes. epguides.com is a good site if you just want to see a full list of episodes for a particular TV show you're interested in.

There's still epguides.com and TV Maze.

Many of those other sites sold out to corporations that really didn't know what do with them.

We've outlived them all. Things aren't as active as they used to be, but we still have a good core group of members.

I have found the DVD Reviews section of this site to be quite helpful, I would read the reviews to see the episode run times and find out if any episodes are incomplete or edited.

Back in 2009 when I read the DVD Review here for That Girl season 5, I noticed that the run time for the episode "Super Reporter" was listed as only 23:55, this didn't look right to me and I suspected that something was missing from the episode on the DVD. Sure enough, a few years later I found out the episode is missing it's ending/tag scene on the DVD which accounts for the shorter than usual run time.

A few other episodes of That Girl also have shorter than usual run times but I haven't been able to determine if any of those are edited or not.

epguides is a good site, but not secure. Wikipedia has been filling in holes of late, and virtually any sitcom has an accompanying episode list. Many sitcoms on there have a separate list of episodes, and others have the episode list within the main article.

Imdb is an OK site, but I think it was better when it wasn't part of Amazon.

No site has an easy way to correct errors. Wikipedia is supposed to be open to update by anyone, but you have to be really computer-savvy to figure it out.
