Ignore TV series links from IMDb

Should Sapphire ignore TV show hits from IMDb in the same way it ignores (VG) hits?

During a full import if Sapphire hasn't found a show on TV Rage it may turn up on the movie list from IMDb. This happened to me last night and the importer hung after I selected the TV show IMDb link just to see what would happen.

Not a major issue, but easily fixed. I'll add a patch tonight when I get home if you think it's sensible.

The original patch was incorrect. IMDb has a "TV title" string that should be ignored so the "(TV" string needs to be fleshed out at little bit.

To see the problem try importing Sleepy Hollow (the 1999 version), it will ignore the most likely result because of the "TV title" string in the AKA list.

This patch causes original TV movies (such as those on the SciFi? channel) to be ignored because they are listed in IMDB with "(TV)" in their title. For example:
