[REQ] Option to weight air date higher than episode name

I would like to submit a request for an option to give priority to the show's air date over the episode name when matching against TheTVDB. The current way works perfectly well for series that have unique episode names, but there are some that I record that tend to reuse names each season. For instance, American Idol not only has episodes called "Auditions 1", "Auditions 2", etc. each season, but within a season may have multiple episodes called "Results Show". More often than not, this results in an incorrect match when renaming the converted file to Show - SxxExx format. And usually it incorrectly matches against a prior season.
