Not publicly accessible data I'm assuming. What web sites/Internet services have TV show information we could use to possibly help with matching favorites? Is there any extra info that we could collect from our XML feed besides actor info?

A service dedicated to collecting show ratings from MythTV users could be done pretty easily...but does it make sense if our usage pool is so limited? Results would probably be skewed for all Sci-Fi, Action, and Anime shows with all of us computer geeks. :)
