    Brad Garrett made a joke recently on Hollywood Squares about women needing their husbands to program the TiVo.

    The word Tivo was used on David Letterman twice in a row so far, we'll see if it's three tonight. First on Tuesday 04/23/02 by a guest, don't know his real name, Scott Evil. He told us to TiVo his new shows because there were many different times and dates. Then also on Wednesday 04/24/02, TiVo was used in one of Dave's opening jokes about while the Cardinals were in Rome, they were tivoing The Osbournes. If I hadn't already deleted these shows, I would have given you the exact quotes. This thread just goes to show you how often TiVo is used as a verb. I will assume they all own TiVos.

    TiVo is mentioned in Fantastic Four #55, to be released next week. You can see a scan of the page over at comics continuum .

    I think there were two other people. One was a director (whose name I don't remember) and the other was Tom Hanks.

    In the comic book "Ultimate Spider Man" #22, Norman Osborn (aka The Green Goblin) tells Peter Parker (aka Spider Man) "I've watched this clip so many times this weekend, I thought I was going to burn a hole in my Tivo."

    Morning radio hosts Sarah & Vinnie on Alice Radio in San Francisco both have TiVos. They used to talk about it all the time. Of course, Vinnie doesn't talk at all any more, but that's another story... Oh, and I think the traffic gal Cathy got one too after they raved about it repeatedly.

    This week's "Car Talk" mentioned TiVo, but I can't find it in the online version. It was at one of the breaks away from the show, which had Tommy (I think) saying something like "And even though the space station astronauts fast-forward their TiVo whenever we say it, this is National Public Radio". I am sure I don't have the quote just right, and am annoyed I can't find it in the online version, but my son corroborates the "spotting".

    David Letterman again on 04/29/02 during an interview with Charlie Sheen. Charlie asked if he watched his show and Dave says I taped it, I tivoed it.

    Conan O'Brien mentioned TiVo last night ... sorry I don't have any specifics - I'm currently on the road, Tivo-less, or I would have backed it up a few seconds to catch it.

    I don't know how I'm getting by without the trusty TiVo. :eek:

    The guest, Christa Miller of "The Drew Carey Show," was talking about the mutual lists she and her husband have of other people they're allowed to sleep with without consequences, and in particular, who was on her husband's list. At one point in the (very detailed) conversation, Conan said something like, "I hope your husband's watching. Better yet, I hope you have TiVo and you can save this forever."

    I'm a big fan of the Tony Bruno Extravaganza (sports talk show) on Fox affiliates. His regular guest is Pat O'Brien of Access Hollywood. Well, Pat O' mentions "TIVO'ing" shows often enough that it is no longer discussed as to what it means.

    Tonight's Will & Grace mentioned TIVO. Grace said something to the effect that she has a life.... she has a TIVO. Will chimed in that he has almost learned how to use it.

    Nice to hear about TIVO in prime time.

    There was a small Tivo spot during tonights Will and Grace. It mad me laugh, so I figured I would share.


    Photographer: I mean don't you have lives?
    Grace: Yes, we have lives. I Just got Tivo
    Will: I am this close to learning how to use it.

    Saw this, too; but in the beginning of the episode Grace is watching a show when Jack comes in; Grace complains about missing her show -- but if she had TiVo she would't have been missing it. Maybe this is what prompted her to buy it! (or maybe she was just trying to appear cool)

    Or maybe the TiVo is on the TV in her bedroom, and not in the living room. In that case they should get DirecTV with DTiVo so they can mirror the TiVo service across receivers. Or are we overthinking this?
