Why can't I add "The Ed Sullivan Show" to Carol Burnett's filmography?

Carol Burnett appeared in the Ed Sullivan show, episode 10.16 (1957) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0724340/?ref_=ttep_ep1). She is listed both in the summary and in the cast for that episode.

However, the Ed Sullivan show does not appear in Carol Burnett's filmography.

When I try to add it to Carol Burnett's filmography, imdb complains that "The Ed Sullivan Show" does not exist. It gives me about 20 items to choose from, but none of them is "The Ed Sullivan Show". 

What's going on? Why can't I add "The Ed Sullivan Show" to Carol Burnett's filmography?

In case ACT_1 is being too cryptic for you, 
you can see by the listing on the link you provided, that she is credited as Self.

So on her Filmography, select Self: TV.


Then Find the Ed Sullivan Show, which for her is listed in 1970, her last appearance, and if offered, tap Show More at the bottom of that entry, and you'll see episode #10.16:


I would never have found the listing without using the browser feature Find (ctrl-F) to search for Sullivan.

Thanks! The irony is that I was trying to add her appearance as Self, so I should have thought to expand the Self section to look for Ed Sullivan in the first place.
