I think you're doing this sub-optimally.

Instead of "Record only this showing", choose "Find and record one
showing" (it's called something like that), so if "Tanks" is showing 3
times over the next 2 weeks, it can pick any one of them.

I do this all the time for recording weekend movies and PBS
documentaries (granted, there are not multiple broadcasts of network
movies, but PBS documentaries are usually broadcast a few times).

Much easier to browse the two weeks for the few you want, instead of
deselecting the 30 you don't want ...
