It could be very annoying as TV shows have names that are kind of general.

 

I typed in "revolution" and the results were focused on the TV show. I tried "castle" and it was the same kind of results. Why would that be a problem? Well, I typed in "blacklist" and got to page 20 of results and got not one link to the McCarthy Era blacklist. Good luck learning anything.

 

In contrast, when I typed in "Roswell" it didn't give me the "TV Show" view. It did offer it as an option off to the right that got me there.
