Is it possible to bring the minimum votes from 5.000 to 25.000 like in the Movie Section? Only the popular ones woould pop up in the chart and we can rid of the turkish shows or less-known animated shows. You think u can implement this?

You mean popular in the US then...
Therefore, I think the filtering should be done according to the location set up in preferences.

No ... I am not from the Us.. i mean being popular worldwide and I don't think that 5000 votes define a show being popular

I get what you mean.
Nevertheless, regardless of the threshold, it might be interesting to know that some Turkish, Chinese or Italian series, not released outside their boundaries, are immensely popular locally and therefore may deserve attention.

You can do this via advanced title search at https://www.imdb.com/search/title

Top 250 TV-shows with 25K+ votes @ https://www.imdb.com/search/title?title_type=tv_series&num_votes=25000,&view=simple&sort...

or keeping the vote threshold but filtering by language:

Top 250 TV-show in English with 5K+ votes @ https://www.imdb.com/search/title?title_type=tv_series&num_votes=5000,&primary_language=en&a...

The first in "your" refined list is not even on the top 250 list... it should be the opposite way you suggested I think... if I wanna see the whole list with less known tv show I put a filter on a list with even show with under 25.000 votes. It's just another point of view

Mahabharat with 5.000 people in the world (maybe the relatives of the tv show's crew) is in the top 20 of the tv shows of all time..is it better than fargo or true detective? come on! it is not one of all time best show. period. i think we need a limit of 25.000 votes to get only the better ones

Okay but if you put the threshold to 100 u will have 250 unknown features... setting a higher threshold will help us having the better and most popular titles. That's what a top chart needs...

"Most popular" for sure. "Better", I could hardly tell...

Ok but how can you say that an higher rating on smaller numbers is better ? It's not because of the small amount of total votes..

You assess whether a movie is good or not after a set of esthetical, moral, personal, etc. criteria. It may not necessarily be tied to popularity.

You are right! My rating is subject to that set of things Popularity is important when it comes down to a worldwide chart

by the way... supporting my ideas is tracking the movement of the chart. the biggest part of the title that has from 5.000 to 25.000 votes use to drop 30 places per month. they stay maximum a year in the chart. this is supporting my analysis. they should be dropped from the chart of the top tv shows because they're useless and not the top show to choose.
examples?
-enaya (100 places last month)
-queer eye (106 places in six months)
-detectorists (20 places in 3 months)
-umbre (71 places in 6 months)
-Sseulsseulhago Chalranhashin: Dokkaebi (30 places in a month)

The list goes on......we can get rid at least of 50 titles.
Only 165 in the actual top 250 have more than 25.000 votes. Maybe we can set the treshold a little lower than the movie top 250...let's say 15.000 or 20.000
what you think ?

Still no answer.
The chart is totally useless..with such a low treshold titles get huge movements up and down. TV Shows goes up and down 50 place in a month. This won't express "the best" or "the most popular" tv shows.
Can you set the treshold at 25.000 like in the top 250 movie ??? We will have a better list. What you guys think? I think it will be way better.
