Charlie Sheen is at it again! After being kicked off of his own hit show Two and a Half Men, Charlie took his anger issues all across the country on his infamous Torpedo Tour.  Screaming profanities and munching on Twizzlers in front of a live audience could only hold its appeal for so long before Sheen fans began to crave something more… relatable. Charlie may be an angry, self-proclaimed “battling warlock,” but he sure knows how to turn his shortcomings into charm on the TV screen. His newest sitcom on FX, Anger Management, Continue Reading

The start of the summer has included the return of two fan favorites, HBO’s True Blood and TNT’s Falling Skies, and we could not be more excited for what’s in store.  **SPOILER ALERT** Waiting nine long months for the return of True Blood was painful, but the season opener and seeing Detective Stabler trade in his badge for fangs in episode 2 were well worth the wait. Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU) and fellow newcomer Christopher Heyerdahl (Sanctuary, The Twilight Saga) took on the difficult task of joining an Continue Reading

‘Gilmore Girls’ creator Amy Sherman-Palladino premiered her latest, ‘Bunheads,’ on ABC Family this month (6/11), but it’s not just the creator and the network (where GG lives on in syndication) that these shows have in common…set your TiVo and take a closer look: Only two-episodes into ‘Bunheads,’ Sherman-Palladino’s penchant for pop culture references and Sorkin-esque fast-talking scenes are already apparent. And in addition to repeat matriarch Kelly Bishop, we’ve also spotted Gregg Henry (Mitchum Huntzberger) as a surfer bartender and heard that Chris Eigeman (Jason Stiles) and Rose Abdoo (Gypsy) Continue Reading

Drumroll please…and the winner of the “Father’s Day Face-Off” is… Mr. Phil Dunphy! We had an inkling when he blew all the other comedy Dads out of the water in the first round of the Father’s Day Face-Off, but who could predict that Mr. Dunphy would also leave cutthroat (literally) competitors Dexter Morgan and Eddard Stark in the dust to become the ultimate TV Dad! Dunphy claimed nearly double the number of fan votes than second runner-up Dexter Morgan received, while Homer Simpson and Eddard Stark were far less successful Continue Reading

During the past year TiVo has been studying box office performances in relation to the fast-forward rates of movie spots – and the correlation between the two is undeniable. Fast-forward rate is simply the percent a spot is skipped during live plus seven days of time-shifted viewing. On average the fast-forward rates for movie spots, which are traditionally some of the most popular commercials on television, range from 12-17%. We first took notice of this correlation in September of 2011 when the latest “can’t miss” Sarah Jessica Parker film I Continue Reading
