IMDb used to have a section where the user could view individual episode ratings of a TV Show. Why is it removed from the site? It was useful and had a different section for votes by users and votes by IMDb. Is it coming back?

Meet Shah,
As ACT_1 illustrates, you can see ratings for episodes on IMDb.

Can you provide the url for an episode where you cannot see ratings? Make sure that the episode has already been RELEASED before citing it as an example. (The ability to rate a title is only available after the title has been aired/screened.)

This information can be accessed in several ways, for example, on https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1312171/ see the red highlighted areas in the grab below (and you can also access the episode list with ratings via the "MORE" menu in the top menu block of the page):

Thank you, Col Needham. But this seems different from the page that I am referring to! Have a look at this old screenshot I found only. This is what I have been looking for Episode Rated by IMDb User Rating

Thank you for your replies, everyone. But what you guys have shown and what I am describing are completely different pages. I found this screenshot online that shows what I am describing. IMDb used to have this exact page for every TV show where you can see "Episodes Rated by IMDb User Rating". And I can't seem to find this anymore

Meet: I can't find the exact format you are looking for, but to find the episodes for most TV series ranked by user rating, go to the main page for the series (such as https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096697/ for "The Simpsons").

Then look in the right-hand rail for Top-Rated Episodes. You will see the three top-rated episodes listed there, with See more episodes listed below them. Click on See more episodes.

You will then get a list of all of the series' episodes ranked by user rating. In the case of "The Simpsons", that would be https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?series=tt0096697&view=simple&count=250&sort=user_rati...

This won't necessarily work for every TV series that ever existed, but for shows where the episodes have consistently been rated by IMDb users, it should work.

I hope this helps.
