Facebook Share Preview won't show up!!

Hey there. I'm having an issue with facebook share. I can't seem to get a thumbnail and description preview when I type in any URLs from my site http://superchief.tv on facebook's share. All I get is the address to the the URL.

I googled it and I got this:
(from facebook help center http://www.facebook.com/help.php/?page=787)
I donít have a preview for my link.
If a preview is not displaying correctly for your URL, you may need to contact the webmaster of the site you are trying to share to check whether it meets Facebook's requirements.

In order to generate a Share preview successfully, a website must include the following three meta tags in its source HTML:

<meta name="title" content="Article headline here" />
<meta name="description" content="Article summary here" />
<link rel="image_src" href="http://www.example.com" />

Please make sure that this site includes these tags in the section of its HTML. Also, note that these tags are case-sensitive and URLs must be absolute. For more information, click the "How do I make sure the Share Preview works?" link at the bottom of http://www.facebook.com/share_partners.php.

So I put this code:

<meta name="title" content="Title Here" />
<meta name="description" content="Description Here" />
<link rel="image_src" href="http://superchief.tv" />

into the HTML Inserts:Header section where you can Add HTML/CSS Inserts.

I'm obviously doing this wrong because its not working at all. Please please please HELP!!

Thanks lots!
