We actually blacklist the tag because it is felt as too meta of a tag and has limited use.

Do we want to do the same to ?

I largely agree with Christian Rau's answer, but I also know from experience that if we have such a generic tag, it'll largely be misused by users who don't know better. I propose that we remove , and then make one that covers the questions about TV shows as a topic, which he provided some examples of. Maybe , or something along those lines. This will provide a more specific tag to use, while ensuring we don't have to constantly prune the tag as it keeps getting misused.

It should definitely be bruned :-)

While many questions tagged with don't really deserve it, being about a particualr show or about identification, there are also many that are indeed about TV-Shows in general and thus have a perfect right to bear the tag.

Some examples of IMHO justified tags:

So I don't see a reason to eagerly delete tags just because they can be misused for many questions they don't apply for. It rather should be decided on a question by question basis.
