    House, Season 4 premeire.

    I won't spoil it, since I'm sure that it's still in a bunch of folks now playing list.

    The only thing that was missing was Wilson saying "But I have a "recently deleted folder, you fool!"...

    I haven't seen this one posted yet, and I actually snapped a pic of it for all to see. I was going to host the pic, but fearing copyright laws :eek: (seriously) I did a quick search to see if it was hosted by CL himself. Anyway...

    I paused at the end of The Big Bang Theory, and found out that TiVo was actually the brainchild of Chuck Lorre :eek:

    Ha! Good stuff...and funny! :up:

    Noted that Jon Stewart mentioned TiVo on Monday's Daily Show. It's not the first time of course. In fact it's almost in passing now...as if everyone knows what TiVo is and obviously has one. I can imagine how many Comcast DVR couples look at one another and smile...knowing that they have "TiVo"...just as the recording stops in the middle of the program. ;)

    Colbert Report tonight in "The Word" segment--

    Colbert is ranting on advertising, including NBC's new NBC Direct Download--free shows including commercials you can't fast forward through. Colbert says "NBC's new plan has only one flaw"
    and on the screen appear the words: "Doesn't De-invent TiVo". lol!

    Watched this new HBO series. The program is loaded with Tivo. In fact the one husband receives a new Tivo from his wife for their anniversary. Wow, she is a great wife!

    I agree with ya - actually i was thinking "old batteries" as i have that problem when my batteries are about ready to die! I was a bit upset that they didnt use the TiVo sounds as it's one of the easiest ways to recognize our favorite toy :)

    Lots of TiVo mentions in tonight's episode of "'Til Death" including actual sound effects and an argument over a deleted show. Guess they didn't have the Recently Deleted folder yet. :)

    Two and A Half men this week (what night is it on? I have no idea when TV shows air anymore :)) Mr. Waffles episode.

    Charlie drags Allen and Jake out of bed to watch an infomercial for a CD by Charlie's alter ego, child song writer/star Mr. Waffles, at 5 a.m. After a bleary-eyed look at it Jake asks if this isn't something Charlie could have "TiVoed".

    Honorable mention.

    That would not have helped because the space was needed to record another show.

    It's not a show I watch, but I had to watch it because of your message. :)

    On tonight's Simpson's Homer goes to buy batteries but ends up buying a TiVo (with 2 year contract) since the batteries came free with it. :)

    They then go on and on about how wonderful it is to skip commercials until Keith Olbermann convinces her that skipping commercials is evil so she ends up watching all commercials which then leads them into the main story line (that has nothing to do with TiVo).

    I saw that giant TiVo commercial opening up The Simpsons tonight. I had to watch it more than once. It was really, really good, as if it was a paid product placement. Was this a brand new episode? I think it was because it had Happy Thanksgiving in it.

    I wonder, was it? I mean, they had the orange TiVo box, the peanut remote (except it was white), etc. That was the biggest/longest TiVo mention I have seen in a while (that wasn't actually an ad).

    When Marge is FF'ing through the commercials, use slo mo ... there's a lot of good caps from old episodes in there. :)

    Do you happen to know the name of the episode? We missed it and I took a look, but can't determine which episode it is.

    Thanks for the tip! :up:
