Allow me to exclude shows from the homepage banners.
So like most people, I only follow a select number of shows. I think a simple filtering of the homepage would make it much easier to find my shows. Here is what I propose:
allow me to remove a banner from the page of a type of show, for example "The only way is essex". I will never watch this show. When I've removed said listing, then add that to my blacklist (similar to how I add favorites now). Now when I go to the home page, I won't ever see that show in the main listing again. Over time, the main page will only list any shows I'm interested in, and any NEW shows that I haven't blacklisted. This will give me a chance to check out new shows, but doesn't force me to explicitly pick which shows to see.
This also helps if I haven't been to the site in a few days to quickly see what I've missed.
