The TV IV wiki is an open encyclopedia of television shows from the United States of America. Founded in 2005, it runs on the popular MediaWiki software, and contains Google advertising. Interestingly, this wiki site happily runs on a now outdated version of MediaWiki, specifically v.1.21.1, which also allows the continued Special:PopularPages output required for calculating its wikiFactor.
In the summer of 2005, TV Tome became TV.com following its buyout by CNET. Several people who frequent The TV IV forum in the Something Awful Forums were unhappy about that. The new site was filled with Flash and ads, and some of the content from TV Tome was missing. It was decided that, like The Six Million Dollar Man, "we can rebuild him," er, I mean, it. The TV IV wiki was born.
The TV IV seeks to give you current, up-to-date information on your favorite shows, both current and old. This is an open encyclopedia of television shows, which means that anyone can edit the information at will. We urge you to go to your favorite television show and help contribute, as this website can only grow with your contributions. The TV IV aims to include information about every television show and is not limited to American or British television.
Even though the focus of this site is to eventually house full episode guides, don't be afraid to write up more in-depth information about your favorite television show. Articles related to television on a tangent are also encouraged; our primary goal is to make this a one-stop shop for all your television needs.Notice: Please be aware that, since this is primarily a television website, spoilers are prevalent and you read at your own risk. As a general suggestion, only look at episode pages after you've seen the episode. Although users will do their best to ensure that nothing is spoiled for the viewer, please be aware that looking at character and episode pages before you have a full understanding of the show can lead you to be spoiled.
