    Today on the Fox News Channel's Bulls & Bears stock talk show, they mentioned TiVo while talking about Western Digital and how HD's are showing up in all sorts of devices. When they mentioned TiVo it was in the TiVo-like devices. I guess TiVo is taking on the same generic meaning as Kleenex is to facial tissues.

    Newsweek magazine, interview with Aaron Sorkin, writer of West Wing and Sports Night.

    Interview was about the ratings drop of WW.
    He was asked if he has ever seen the Bachelor. He responded that he watches the Bachelor, he TiVo's West Wing.

    Kiefer Sutherland was on The Daily Show last night, and he mentioned TiVo. He did state that the reason he didn't have one was because it is too complicated!! Aargh!

    Jon Stewart mentions TiVo a lot. He did it again one night this week. I don't remember which night since we got behind on watching them and watched two or three of them last night. It was the show with the Democrat Rep from TN.

    Anyway, the guest is explaining something, Jon says something like, "I'm not a stupid man, I mean I figured out how to hook up my TiVo."

    On Tuesday's The Screen Savers on TechTV, with Martin Sargent and Steve Wozniak hosting, they mentioned the plans of SoapCity.com to begin offering commercial-free soap operas over the Net for a monthly fee. Martin commented by saying "Why don't people just get a TiVo?"

    Been mentioned in another thread, but wanted to add it here too ....

    TiVo was voted #1 holiday gift of the year by TechTV in their special "Top 20 Holiday Gifts" show. Leo Laporte mentioned that TiVo was something that "would change your life".

    Here's a link to the other thread going about it:

    Wanda Sykes mentions Tivo in her comedy piece at the end of this weeks Inside the NFL as she's going over things she's thankful about for Thanksgiving. She says she's thankful that Tivo won't have anything to do with the 1-10 Cincinnati Bengals just on principal.

    I wish TiVo implemented true "Regular Expressions". That would be so cool! Then again my TiVo's already pretty slow. :D

    During an recent radio interview with QB Tom Brady, he was asked about why he appeared to look lost on the sidelines recently. He said that his family was saying the same thing as well after the loss to the Jets, so he mentioned that he had a TiVo and that he watched the NE-NY game before he got to see the game films. His response when he saw himself was something like 'OMG, I looked like THAT??' :eek:. He said he thought he has the same enthusiasm as always, but seeing himself made him think differently. Supposedly he tried to keep himself pumped up for the Dolphins game.

    The Mind of the Married Man (HBO) reference was that Mickey's TiVo had started recording things like Will and Grace, and Queer as Folk (Showtime?) and he was setting it up to record things like Girls Gone Wild and MTV Spring Break. Donna walks in and asks him what he's doing and he says that he is "counter programming.. the TiVo thinks I'm gay".

    From This Week's People Magazine - which I think hits newsstands Nationally on Jan 3rd.

    "A few folks working on hit TV shows didn't mind spreading a little wealth around for the holidays. Ray Romano and executive producer Phil Rosenthal gave the 100-plus cast and crew of "Everybody Loves Raymond" a TiVo, the digital video recorder, with a lifetime subscription service contract -- a $600 value. "

    From this weeks TVGuide article on Michael Chiklis (The Shield) on his success over the last 12 months.

    "I wish I had a TiVo player for my life...so I could put it on freeze frame"
