I have skip on the Ancient Aliens I'm watching from Sunday April 5. This is on History channel.
I may be misremembering but I swear we talked about that in the thread a few weeks ago

Missed SM on Tommy (CBS). A Late Show, The Tonight Show and TDS were good.
Nothing on Vagrant Queen or Nightline.
...and both got Skip since my last post.
Though most all my recorded shows lately have the SKIP icon, for the past 2 or 3 weeks SKIP has not been working on them.
Mostly shows on ABC, prime time. ie Grey's Anatomy, Station 19, For Life and the sitcoms.
If you are OTA, it could be that your ABC signal had issues during your recording and affected the closed captioning (which is used to set the skip marks) at some point during those shows.
Are you watching on the TiVo itself, or a Mini?
The Tivo, itself.
Okay, I had a theory, but that shoots it down.
Yes, it's definitely a prevailing theory around here but SM issues have been rampant for some time now. I wouldn't be surprised if the surge in shows without SM was due to staff being unable to perform their jobs in recent weeks.
That being said, I had SM on nearly every show on Thursday. No SM on Shahs of Sunset, 3/10 though.
SNL didnt have it (the new one....the rerun at 9 CDT did have SM)
Yes for Motherland; no (at least so far) for What We Do in the Shadows.
No Skipmode on Bravo 4/16 on:
Real Housewives of NYC
No Skipmode on Charmed, 4/17
60 minutes the last two weeks has not had SM
It's MScottC's fault.
Missing on S.W.A.T. but there was bad metadata. Also see: S.W.A.T. 4/23/2020 "Vice"
It's really been hit and miss lately. I've also had some bizarre skip experiences lately.
One show I was watching last week that had skip was dramatically 'off'. I was in about minute 15 when it was time to skip and one skip took me to minute 54. Each commercial segment it did that - always all the way to almost the end of the show.
Yes, TiVo let their sole Skip man go due to COVID. Sorry...I’m going to request a monthly service credit until TiVo can reliably provide the service they promote. If everyone would do the same, we might get this fixed.
