This should work, go to the custom recording schedules page in mythweb, 
set search type to Power Search, type a some memorable name in the title 
box (this is just the name of the recording rule, not the title of the 
program you are trying to record, and then in the search phrase box put:

     program.title LIKE 'Pusher%'

The % character is the wildcard, so it should match Pusher, Pusher II, etc.
