Oops...I didn't realize the title in the Mythweb form meant the title
of the rule not the show.

Changed it to:

program.title = 'The Big Bang Theory' and program.programid =
recordedprogram.programid and
recordedprogram.starttime < "2011-06-23"

Also set it to ignore duplicates on the Mythweb form.

So am I right in thinking that as I re-record the twenty or so
episodes of the series that were affected and delete the originals,
the rule will eventually stop working (as I intend) once I've deleted
all the pre-June 23rd showings?
