TiVo’s Fix For Jobless Veterans Many companies have college interns. Why not for men and women back from combat? By TOM ROGERS AND TOM WOLZIEN They are everywhere, but we don’t usually see them—the nearly 300,000 of the 2.4 million veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who are without work. That’s a 12% unemployment rate, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As a veteran recently told us, “It’s like people say, ‘Thank you for your service . . . but don’t ask me for a job.’” They Continue Reading

After seventeen days and 962 medals, the Games of the XXX Summer Olympiad came to a festive end last night. London extinguished the massive Olympic cauldron, sending the burning torch on to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 XXXI Summer Games. But before the traditional passing of the torch, a massive party took place in London’s Olympic Stadium where 80,000 fans danced and sang along with a host of British stars. As NBC’s final telecast of the games was broadcast to the Yanks in the states, what were the TiVo Continue Reading

From sprinters to long distance runners, track & field finished strong in last night’s Olympic coverage, grabbing four out of five TiVo Top Moments. The most watched moment was the finish of the men’s 4x100m relay as the fastest man in the world set a record with the fastest team in the world. Usain Bolt brought home the baton for Jamaican to win gold with a record setting time. He also brings home three gold medals and another record: the first person to win golds in the 100m, 200m and the Continue Reading

On your mark, set, go! It was a fast and furious night at the Olympic stadium in London as a 27-year world record was smashed by Team USA in the women’s 4x100m relay. Carmelita Jeter anchored the USA’s final leg, securing gold in world record pace of 40.82s and nailing the Top Moment of the evening in an event where the gold medal had eluded the Americans since 1996.   Not every Top Moment was happy for Team USA: Morgan Uceny broke down uncontrollably on the track as she tripped and Continue Reading

Do you ever watch TV and feel the urge to play matchmaker? We do. While we still can’t come to a consensus on a better match for Peter from Family Guy, we have decided on the following 3 TV couples we wish existed: Jim & Maggie on “The Newsroom” Don’s rivalry with Jim has gone from professional to personal. Continue Reading

The London Olympic Games may be drawing to a close, but TiVo viewers remained engaged, viewing many historic events as part of last night’s TiVo Top Moments. The extraordinary victory of Usain Bolt and Jamaica in the men’s 200m ranked first among last night’s Top Moments: Bolt pounded his chest and smiled, uttered a quick prayer before the start, took a strong lead and did not give it up. Bolt kept his title of World Champion and took home the gold for Jamaica and became the first man to win the 100m Continue Reading

Women’s beach volleyball and track & field shared the spotlight for TiVo’s Top Moments of last night’s Olympics coverage on NBC. The most watched moment was the last few seconds of the women’s beach volleyball final between two USA teams: Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings vs. April Ross and Jennifer Kessy.  Ross and Kessy were strong contenders for the gold medal, casting doubt on the historic May-Treanor/Walsh Jennings duo’s claim to winning their third gold medal in London.  Suspense heightened after a shaky first half for May-Treanor/Walsh Jennings, but their Continue Reading
