Aly Raisman’s parents are officially internet-famous. Joining the ranks of Laughing Baby, and Double Rainbow guy, their adorably intense reaction to one of Aly’s Olympic gymnastics routines is making the rounds online – sweeping up YouTube views and hitting sports news sections from the LA Times to USA Today. The clip shows Aly’s parents rocking and rolling along to their daughter’s uneven bars routine as if they were flying through the air themselves. The made-for-TV-moment didn’t just steal hearts online – Aly’s parent’s hilarious reaction was the number one top-watched Continue Reading

Swimming finals dominated the most-watched moments during day 3 of the London Olympic Games, followed by men’s gymnastics. John Orozco’s pommel horse woes were perhaps the lowest moment for the USA Men’s Gymnastics Team and landed Orozco in the day’s TiVo Top Moments. Another disappointment for Team USA was Ryan Lochte’s fourth-place finish in the 200m freestyle, missing the podium by a tenth of a second. However, not all TiVo Top Moments from day 3 were low points for Team USA: Missy Franklin’s performance in the women’s 100m backstroke – less Continue Reading

The USA Women’s Gymnastics team dominated Sunday night’s TiVo Top Moments. Teammates Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas attracted the most attention on the Vault and Uneven Bars.  USA’s McKayla Maroney, with a broken toe, performed her marquee event, the Vault.   The USA Swim Team finished a dissappointing second place in the 4×100 Freestyle Relay as they fell to a dramatic come-from-behind surge by the French team.  France, whose team finished second in this event four years ago, provided some entertaining drama in the pool following their win.   TiVo’s Continue Reading

Lochte 1 – Phelps 0. The biggest rivalry in the pool becomes the top watched moment on the first full day of games at the XXX London Olympiad. The swimming showdown was followed closely by Team USA’s Gymnastics performance.  From Jonathan Horton’s dismount during the middle of his routine to John Orozco’s final landing on the Pommel Horse event, Men’s Gymnastics was a highlight of the evening. Closing out the top moments was Michael Phelps’s interview about his loss in the 4x100m Individual Medley that resulted in his first non-medal Continue Reading

Last week we shared with you 90s shows you should be watching – well the list isn’t over yet! Be sure to add these three shows to your 90s roundup to make your flashback complete! The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (TBS & ABC Family)  The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air helped as an excellent transition into the 1990s and marked the on-screen start of rapper turned superstar Will Smith. The sitcom followed a formula similar to “The Cosby Show” where everything would eventually circle back to the family in each episode. Continue Reading

During the past few months there have been a host of new series debuting on cable.  From the TNT remake of Dallas to the much ballyhooed return of, coincidentally, the king of Bally’s, Charlie Sheen, in Anger Management.  I tally twenty new series in all. Of course, that total does not include every new cable series.  Let me apologize upfront to some niche cable networks: you debut series more often than American Idol announces judges.  For the purposes of this analysis, I’ve limited my scope to the top rated new Continue Reading
