    How does one go about registering the name of a TV show so no one will use
    it?

    Unless I'm mistaken, names aren't covered under copyright law... but
    they can be trademarked if you've got the bucks to do it... and enforce
    your trademark.

    You are correct. Titles (and names) can not be copyrighted.
    Phrases used for marketting purposes can be trademarked, but it is fairly
    expensive (must be researched) and you must enforce the trademark (more $$$)
    or it becomes invalid.

    IANAL but this was "taught" in entry level video production classes.
