As others have said, because it is.

Movie art is rectangular, TV Show art is square.

Don't ask me why - I have no idea why Apple has chosen to display them that way.

But my point is that through going out and grabbing square art, downloading it and storing it locally...then using iFlicks rules to tag shows based on name with the square art...I have a simple process that always grabs the right artwork.

I grab square art from a couple of places - this is a good one, but just the tip of the iceberg:

You can also grab it from iTunes this way:

The thing I like about iFlicks is the ability to set up rules when tagging. I use it to regularly tag TV shows I record with EyeTV - having rules set up to tag based on TV Show name with the AppleTv appropriate square album art that I find and store locally for the few series I record is invaluable.

Everything looks great, is tagged correctly and the art is in the proper format.
Have used now and is great. Going to save me a ton of time. Thanks!

+1 for Identify. I like how if it can't find a movie's info based on title/filename, you can go to the IMDB page for that movie and copy the IMDB code (in the URL) into the Identify app, and it will pull down the info for that IMDB code into the file.
