I think it's easier to sell syndication rights if the show has at least five seasons. Otherwise, once they start showing one episode per (week)day, they loop around to the beginning too fast. I bet Korea got the offbrand shows for pennies on the dollar.

When I was on the radio, I always wanted to call an album "Of the Same Name" and have a song on it called "The Title Cut" so I could play The Title Cut from the Album of the Same Name.
Would your group be The Band of the Same Name?

Bonus: Name a group that has released an album of the same name which features a song of the same name.

Bad Company is the one I can think of. Any others?
I know one other:

Grinderman. They Might Be Giants also had an eponymous song, but it was on the album Flood.

Well, 100 episodes, but that's typically reached during the 5th season. Though it seems 4 US length seasons (88 episodes total) can get you syndicated now.
