Something like this:
t = {{"Smith, Tim", 3}, {"Wheres,Waldo", 4}, {"Muffet, LilMiss", 0},
{"Brown, Charlie", 1},
{"X, Doctor", 0}}
{{"Smith, Tim", 3}, {"Wheres,Waldo", 4}, {"Muffet, LilMiss", 0},
{"Brown, Charlie", 1},
{"X, Doctor", 0}}

Cases[t, {_, 0}]
{{"Muffet, LilMiss", 0}, {"X, Doctor", 0}}

Regards,
Wolfgang
