What does "Coming Soon" mean on IMDb TV?

If I see an episode of a show that says “Coming Soon,” does that mean it’s actually in the IMDb TV library and will eventually be available, or is “Coming Soon” a catch-all for shows IMDb TV doesn’t currently have?

Thanks!

Thanks, Steve!

"Coming Soon" refers to the rating of that episode; the rating is not yet available until enough votes have been received. For more information, please check out our Help page: Why are certain movies and shows missing an IMDb community rating?

The IMDb TV mention on the page is simply an advertisement included on the page for IMDb TV. We don't currently offer "coming soon" availability for IMDb TV titles. For more information on IMDb TV and how to find titles currently available to stream, please see our Help page: IMDb TV FAQ

Please let us know if we can offer any further help.

I see -- that makes sense.  So just to confirm, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is NOT available to watch on IMDb TV?

Yep, that's correct. You can use the IMDb TV tab on the app homepage or the Find Movies and TV Shows filters to browse currently available titles.

@claire So what’s the number of ratings it needs? What number of ratings does a TV Show or Movie need?

A title has to have at least 5 votes before a rating will be displayed.

That’s what I thought! How long does it take the rating to show up?

On titles with more votes I typically see my vote incorporated into the breakout ratings within an hour. I assume that's the case with that 5th vote and the overall score as well though I haven't directly observed it.
