TiVo Announcements

If you’ve ever traveled internationally with your spouse, then you know that the Beatles got it wrong when they sang “all you need is love.” Love is nice, but a translator is better. International travel is stressful. Navigating new metro systems and adapting to foreign customs can be a lot to deal with for any couple, which is why I’ve always thought it was a mistake for couples to compete together on The Amazing Race. It’s hard enough deciding who gets to control the remote, or whose family to visit Continue Reading

From President Obama encouraging musical artists to use their influence to speak out against rape and domestic violence, to Pharrell and Prince’s acknowledging the #BlackLivesMatter movement, the typically buoyant ceremony had some very serious undertones.

Lately it seems that every time I turn on the TV, I’m treated to a new, odd version of Rob Lowe. So far I’ve seen Scrawny Arms Rob Lowe, Crazy Hair Rob Lowe, and Painfully Awkward Rob Lowe. The commercials are cute, but as a life-long fan of the Brat Pack, I know there’s much more Lowe to know. Lowe’s first film role was as Sodapop Curtis in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Outsiders. His costars included Patrick Swayze, Diane Lane, Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, and Lowe’s childhood friend, Emilio Estevez. Continue Reading

Emotions run high on the field and in commercials, but comedy is still king Today we announced TiVo’s top commercials and moments from Super Bowl® XLIX, and while “Deflategate” may have dominated much of the talk leading up to the game, the recurring theme of comedy lost no air – despite the emotional spots attracting attention. This year there were more serious, dramatic and sentimental spots than in previous Super Bowl broadcasts – including Budweiser’s ‘Lost Dog’ that won the top spot – but overall, comedy came through again with Continue Reading
