Yes. It will list you as a leecher, not a seeder, and you will end up starting to download the show all over again.

What I do is start the torrent so it creates a folder on my harddrive with the correct name. Then copy all the files into that folder. Then start the torrent again - you will probably have to do a Force Recheck when you do so it will check all the files and then put you into seed mode.

You may get some help from this item in the FAQ:
