Where is the list of all the shows that SPT acquired? Did you cut it to save room? 71.111.215.224 21:47, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Jeannie[edit]

How come IMDB says Jeannie is owned and distributed by Sony Pictures Television? I don't think that series is owned by WBTV at all. King Shadeed 21:35, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

This page needs to be locked from vandalism since a lot of it has recently been going on. King Shadeed 16:56, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Scope[edit]

I was told by the editor Trivialist that this page contains excessive programs in the list. The user said that "Listing nearly every show SPT has been involved in is beyond the scope of a general encyclopedia article." I tried to shorten the list in February, but it was backfired. Maybe I have to set up a consensus to remove the programs older than and not initially or remain distributed by SPT in the program's production. If the criteria of said programs to get removed doesn't fit, additional discussions are welcomed as long if the list won't get very long and cluttered. TheGGoose (talk) 17:57, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

In the "Shows produced and/or distributed by SPT" section lead, did SPT really distribute the "Columbia TriStar Pictures theatrical library?" TheGGoose (talk) 21:01, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes they do. And one suggestion I thought of, instead of deleting the list, why not make a separate page for them? It has a good amount of notes and references listed on several series. King Shadeed 22:25, August 27, 2014 (UTC)
I remembered an article that only includes a major television distributor's library of programs, just like your suggestion. I better take a look.TheGGoose (talk) 03:27, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
  • While I still can't find the article at this moment, here's an observation I detected: The 20th Television and NBCUniversal Television Distribution articles have extensive lists not tagged with problems. The Warner Bros. Television Distribution article is tagged for the suspected problems like in the SPT article, both done by the same user. The Disney–ABC Domestic Television article only has "first-run syndication programming" shows listed and it's not tagged for problems. The first three articles I described have similar depths of coverage to their own libraries. The article List of MGM Television shows is very similar to the article I'm looking for but it's not the target. In that article all the shows were directly produced/distributed by the company. If we can't find the very specific reasons for the tagged messages, we might have to ask somebody, I guess. The DreamWorks Classics article highlights its more-known properties in a similar way the SPT article summary describes and introduces the company's the vast content.

  • I probably have to stop my search for the article I was talking about. A side note is that the same user who tagged the SPT and WBTD articles had removed a similar list in the Worldvision Enterprises article, and another user had removed more text about Worldvision's content they had distributed or produced, such as the show Charmed. I wonder how WP:IINFO applies exactly to TV program lists on company articles.TheGGoose (talk) 01:53, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Well, I'll have to look for sources for the WBTD page in the meantime. But back on topic. Should we make a separate article for the long list for SPT? King Shadeed 09:06, September 7, 2014 (UTC)
I think the list can go to a new article, which would list the programs SPT has or had rights and distribution to. TheGGoose (talk) 16:30, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
