How to import the show "20/20"? (1 Viewer)

The show "20/20" has never imported itself correctly into my DB but in the past, I was able to search for "20" and find it as an option. For a couple of months now, when I type "20" in the search bar in MP-TV Series Config, it brings up a ton of shows from the year 2020. I get the same result if I search for "20/20" or "2020".

Is there a search string that would find this show correctly? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Thank you. "20/20" and "20/20 Downtown" did not work for me but "20 20" is the ticket! I didn't think to leave a space!

    Side effect of weird characters in URLs. As you could see the "space" got converted to %20 in the URL, but the / would have been used as-is and then freaks the system out as if you were trying to go to sub-folder or it gets filtered out.

    Forward-slash is %2F, but TheTVdB has no support for this and removes the character, turning "20/20" into "2020" as per:

    Space to the rescue :)
