I'm not sure whether this is a country specific issue, however in Australia, the 0x30 genre descriptor is generally reported as "Entertainment" rather than as "Show/game show".

I've attached a patch if anyone would like to use it, however it may be that a different way of dealing with national genre descriptor fields is developed.

I think it happens the same in Spain, since Friends, House, Knight Rider and all the other series and sitcoms are shown under the category "Show/game show". It would be better to change it to entertainment or series.

(In [15174]) Closes #3587. This changes the category description of "Show/game show" to "Entertainment" as it's more correct for the type of show that gets put in this category.
