I have noticed lately that all of the members of a cast are not shown. In example, I was looking up the May 15th episode of CSI to find out more info on James Callis but when I looked up the cast not only did I not find him I didn't see Eric Roberts listed. There were only 3 people listed in the cast. It has been happening more and more lately. Is there a way to fix this? I have come to rely on IMDB for my movie infor. It is disheartening to see this happening. Please try to fix this problem.

IMDB relies on users to add the information, there are then processing backlogs, and finally the page needs to be rebuilt.

As someone can't complete the cast list until the episode has screened (yesterday) then there is always going to be a slight delay between airing and the time the complete details are available.

Obviously, if the production company has someone with early access to the cast list who then adds it ahead of time, then cast lists might be live when the episode first screens. However, that is something IMDB has no control over.
