I'd vote to submit the "Michael Smith" grabber to the XMLTV project.  
Having all the config external to the script is pretty much required  
for it to be be broadly useable, plus it has just proven itself to be  
more robust to site changes.

Although I'd be happier with python, all the other tv_grab_xx scripts  
seem to be perl. I'm a big fan of not using multiple languages within  
a single project, and well-written perl isn't *that* hard to  
maintain. Although it can be a bit much late in the evening with no  
caffeine boost left :/

The XMLTV project at the link that Anssi posted is maintained by a  
guy called Ed Avis, so perhaps we should just submit the current  
"Michael Smith" grabber to him.
