Can I "like" a TV show on Facebook but not see news from it in my News Feed?

I'm not interested in the news and just had an unseen episode spoiled from the show's own news feed item.

I've looked in the Facebook settings but did not find anything obvious to get rid of those feed items.

If nothing else works I'll just remove them from my "likes" entirely.

Yes, you can. Click on the x to the right of any such news item in your feed (it appears when you hover over that item), and choose "Hide [page name]".

This way you retain the "like" status (i.e. continue to be a fan, as it used to be called), but you won't get any more updates from them in your feed.

If you ever want to undo this for some page, you can do that in your news feed options: scroll down to the bottom of your news feed and click "Edit options" (Facebook FAQ item on this).
