I modified the example in the custom rules editor to allow any show with
Pilot in the subtitle--many networks are airing episodes out of order
or, never airing the 0001 episode ("unaired pilots").
Note, also, for those of you not using Schedules Direct, there's the New
Titles search--which shows any shows with titles that haven't been seen
in 11 months (11months allows you to see the holiday specials every year).
