I haven't come across anything for Ubuntu yet unfortunately. The closest I have found is TVRename which is for windows. I haven't managed to get it working in Wine yet either, so I am resorting to running it on a Windows system over the network (but a VM would do just as well).

The source code is available, and I'm sure they'd welcome help in porting it to Linux...
