iPod Touch TV Shows do not appear on device

So, you've purchased a TV Show or two (or ten) from the iTunes Store, and you need to sync them to your iPod Touch. Should be easy right? Well, maybe not. There are two ways to sync TV Shows to the Touch. The first is to click on the device in iTunes, select the "TV Shows" tab, select "Sync TV Shows," then decide if you want ALL SHOWS, ALL EPISODES, or just UNWATCHED, etc etc. The other way is to make sure "Manually manage music and videos" is selected on the device's "General" tab, then go into your library and drag the TV Show to the device. Either way works fine and your TV Shows will show up in ITUNES as being on the iPod Touch. BUT, open the Touch, fire up "Videos" and what do you see? Not your shows, that's for sure. How to fix that? Right-click on the TV Show and choose Get Info. In the info, find the section that lists the MEDIA TYPE as a "TV Show" and change it to "MOVIE." Apply the changes, let the unit sync, then fire up your videos on the Touch. Tah-dah! Now you TV Show(s) appear(s) in the videos list! I searched high and low over the Internet for this bit of helpful information, and came up empty. So, I thought I would help out others so you wouldn't have to go through the endless search I went through.
