Being an iTunes user myself, I am also quite used the "the" being placed at the end - I also prefer The Beatles to show under B rather than T but the situation is a bit more tricky than that when it comes to movies and tv shows.

In many cases, such as The Big Bang Theory, it doesn't have much impact and I often refer to it as "Big Bang Theory" but on some movies and shows the "The" is actually almost always referred to when the name is mentioned. Take for example "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" - no one ever say "Good, the Bad and the Ugly" - or even worse "Good, Bad and Ugly" . The same applies the "The Shining" and the tv show "The Dome" - to ask did you see "Shining" or watch "Dome" just sounds totally wrong.

So, based on that, I think I would prefer "The" being placed in its right place at the start.

Hi Grace,

@FIFO gave me reason to examine the CU / CU+ list closer, and I found these related entries which includes new ones.
Perhaps the list creation is part of the problem.

I've done it in the order you have it listed (only what's in the Consolidated tab).
