It is not something that can be done in themes-- the Show name and
season number only show up in the first two columns in your setup
because that's the directory architechture you use-- but it's not the
only one out there and for now we have to take into account all
permutations, which means TV gets formatted that way in the
buttontree.  It can be formatted any way you like in the other views,
however.  As it is, though, the text values in the buttontree need to
be set programmatically until the buttontree buttonlists are more
themable, hopefully for .23.
