    The April 6-12 issue of TVGuide has a small section by Regis Philbin talking about TiVoing Seinfeld to catch the Larry David episodes.

    On The Screen Savers last night there was a demo of a baseball game available from the EA website (www.ea.com), I think the game was It's Outta Here. In the background, flanking the scoreboard are a pair of TiVo guys.

    I'm assuming that this is paid advertising, but it is kindof unique.

    Filling in for Regis this morning, Andy Richter was talking with Kelly Ripa about the fact that "Andy Richter Controls the Universe" and "The Osbournes" both air on Tuesdays, but Andy was confused about whether they were on at the same time or not.

    Andy said, "I have TiVo, so I don't know what time anything's on."

    Yesterday, Rosie told Sharon Ozborne she has every episode of The Osbornes on TiVo and watches them all in order again before watching a new episode.

    Yesterday, Garry Meier mentioned TiVo on his afternoon drive-time show on Chicago's WLS 890 AM. He was discussing "Trading Spaces", and Garry said that he had never watched the show, so he recently TiVo'd it so he could watch it.

    This is not the first time Garry has bragged on his TiVo-ing abilities on the show, but the references have been far fewer lately since Dish networks is advertising quite heavily on WLS lately, and of course they're touting their Dishplayer....

    A blurb in ESPN the Magazine mentions Tivo. Page 24: Under 80% Big Number: 'So if Carr is house-hunting in Houston, we'll likely be TiVoing past Fear Factor reruns'

    TiVo Rocks!

    During recent ESPN tennis, the announcer (Luke Jensen) was promoting the French Open - he said "Set your VCR's and TiVo's to record French Open Tennis..." I know he did 'cause I hit the back button! :)

    I was watching the local WB affiliate KTLA on Friday during their morning show. They had a segment on a home tour in Pasadena that was recently made over by a number of interior designers. During the segment I was watching, they toured the entertainment room. The center piece was a 16x9 TV (either plasma or rear projection). The reporter asked the tour guide to show the audiance the works behind the doors. When the doors were opened, there was a SONY T-60 sitting there amongst all of the other high-end a/v equipment.

    I could kick myself for leaving it on an airplane after a recent trip, but in an April, 2002 (don't recall the exact date) New Yorker magazine, the "Talk of the Town" column mentioned TiVo, specifically in the context of recording the Academy Awards, which ran hellaciously long. The main point was, even though TiVo-savvy Hollywood users used TiVo's impressive capabilities and capacity to try to catch all of the (ridiculously long) awards show, they came up short. It poked fun at the misfortune of the Hollywood types, but in no way blamed TiVo for their pain.

    By the way, if anyone has this New Yorker, please PM me or send a note to bmr2@georgetown.edu. I'd like to get a copy of the article on Peter Bogdanavich to show my wife. Thanks!

    Today on Rosie O'Donnels show the cast of FOX’s "That 70’s Show" talked about how they loved TiVo. The entire cast has a TiVo except Mila Kunis (known as Jackie on the show). Rosie asked them what their favorite TiVo season pass was, and the majority of them just said Basketball, Laura Prepon (Donna) said hers was Six Feet Under. I’ll try to get the whole transcript to add to my post in the “Official TiVo spotting thread”. Good exposure indeed! :)

    -The Simpsons :) :D :cool: :eek: :p

    Several weeks ago (might be a couple of months now) David Letterman had Martin Short on.

    Martin Short told a rather gross comical story about how he, Steve Martin, and some other comic actor of about the same age (I've forgotten who this third one was) were all scheduled to have colon examinations on the same day, so they decided to spend the evening together sharing the experience of drinking barium solution and "purging" their digestive tracts in preparation for the procedure.

    Dave asked, "So what did you guys do all evening, apart from the obvious."

    Martin Short rattled off a list of inane and unlikely activities for three middle-aged men to be doing, the last item on the list was, "...and Steve had TiVoed about 6 hours of 'Moesha' so we had a great time!"

    :D
