I've always hated the shows that are the same, but are titled differently EACH season. For example:

Survivor is not just Survivor. It's Survivor: Palau or Survivor: Indonesia

or Real World is not just real world. It's real world :new Orleans or Seattle, etc. so if you set it once, that's IT for that season.

I just tried the far in advanced search for survivor for (THIS FALL) because I don't know what it's even going to be titled, and nothing comes up at all but the survivor that's currently airing.... Same with real (fake) world.

For something like Survivor, I would set it up as a Boolean, maybe nname probst cchans ## where ## is your CBS. It's not perfect, it will also get interviews etc, but not bad. Or ttitle survivor cchans ##
