I'm using on online TV recorder to record TV shows. Those recordings are downloaded as a podcast to iTunes. My following Applescript should just grab those podcasts, update some info fields and finally mark them as "TV show" to have them show up under "TV Shows" in iTunes.
It works very well, only the part where I want to set the video kind to TV show doesn't seem to work.

I also had a look at this Doug's script that does something similar and I can't find any difference.
