    Here's some inside dope on this, from a friend who works for a network who visited with my family during the holidays. It was an 80-hour TiVo, and the note that Ray and the exec producer sent with it said something along the lines of, "Here's a TiVo with enough space to record every episode of 'Everybody Loves Raymond' and still have an hour and a half left over for porn!"

    Conan O' Brien mentioned it a dozen times during a recent show. I don't remember which one, I basically watch 3 shows in one hour.

    It was Conan's Friday episode. At the end of the monologue, when he was promoting the musical guest, he said something to the effect of, "So be sure you stay up, or use TiVo...don't use TiVo."

    And then, later in the show, when he was promoting his appearance on Sunday's "Andy Richter Controls the Universe," he ended with, "Don't TiVo it."

    Both of those were fairly obviously winking "ha ha" kind of warnings. At least, I hope they were, since I basically got my TiVo to record Conan every night, and if he says I can't use it anymore, well, I don't know what I'm going to do. :D

    TiVo was mentioned on Good Day New York this morning (01-08-03) on WNYW Fox 5. They were talking about reality shows, and one of them said that she's in bed by that time, then the other one said "well I record them on my TiVo".

    Less than 30 minutes ago on Wednesday, January 8, 2003: On NBC's "Ed" Warren Cheswick's chubby friend, Mark (?), says "Who else do you know that TiVo's the Food Network?"...

    I was listening to the 91x radio station in San Diego this morning. They are looking for groups to be part of the audience for No Doubt during the Super Bowl half time show. They said you won't be able to watch the first half of the super bowl, so you will have to record it. Then they jokingly said the super bowl half time show, brought to you by TiVo.

    The local radio station (in San Diego) was interviewing Ryan Seacrest (of American Idol) and he said he doesn't know what he'd do without his TiVo, and the DJ said I know aren't they great. Ryan said he couldn't figure it out at first, but blamed it on himself not on how complicated it was to setup and use. He also said he had SPs for everything.

    In the latest issue of Esquire Magazine (the one with Catherine-Zeta Jones in the cover) they have a feature about "Doing *stuff* faster", and the advice they gave when it came to "Watch TV faster", guess who was mentioned?

    TiVo. Their tip was: turn the closed captioning on and zoom thru whatever you're watching by hitting the ff button once.

    You're able to watch a 30min show in 11.

    The full quote is:

    "...Don't forget to watch The West Wing on Wednesday nights. It's on opposite very good ABC shows, but you can use TiVo."

    Allison Janney, I believe, actually laughed out loud upon hearing her suggestion.

    Regardless of your political views, Rush Limbaugh mentioned that he has upgraded his TiVo to over 200 hours this past weekend. And, finally got the second tuner connected.

    Was just watching last night's Buffy and, in addition to a Dragonball Z reference, came across a cute little TiVo mention.

    Buffy was showing the potential slayers around the demon bar when they bumped into Clem, that sort of giant puppy dog-looking creature.

    They were talking about how they haven't seen each other for a bit and he tells her, "I saw this great show on the history channel the other night that I knew you would love and then something went all flooey with my TiVo." :D

    Here's a column that appeared in Wednesday's Los Angeles Times:

    TiVo, the Ultimate Script Doctor

    The summary is that, since TiVo lets you zip through shows very quickly, it makes them much more tolerable. Best quote: "As much as I enjoy ('Alias'), I became impatient with expository scenes in which Jennifer Garner's agent Sydney Bristow discusses her feelings with friends, anxious to see the next fight, plot twist or skimpy costume."

    I heard an interview on the radio a couple of week ago where Arsinio Hall raved about how great Tivo was.

    2 Nights in a row now for Letterman - Tivo was mentioned. Last night he was talking about how cold and windy it was in NYC and wanted to show viewers what he had caught on his Tivo on The Weather Channel - then they showed a clip from The Weather Channel where some of the graphics blew right off the screen, obviously a mock up - but he said did say he had caught the clip from Tivo.

    Then again tonight with Ellen Degenerse on - She mentioned Tivo. I've already deleted the show - I forget the context.

    But two nights in a row for Late Night - Dave must like it. Maybe he'll start posting here. He talks about that www thing some too ! LOL
