Comment(by stuarta):

 Okay, look at it a different way.

 You have two different sources of data.

 Two different sets of people input that data into the servers.

 Are you going to go and bash their heads together and get them
 to type *exactly* the same thing for every show they are typing
 into their databases?

 No? Didn't think so...

 You are lucky they get as close as they do. People in some countries
 would be happy with vaguely accurate data from 1 source that can be
 used for scheduling a week in advance.

 Under no circumstances will "Smallville" equal "Smallville - CW"

 Use a power search rule for Smallville. That's what it's there for.
 The duplicate matching won't be as good, but it's only as good as
 the data used for scheduling.
