    Maybe she got the TiVo between the first part of the ep and the conclusion. After all, they did have to wait after each photo session to get their proof in the mail.

    Or are we overthinking this, WinBear?

    Any mention is always better than no mention but the quotes above came as a response to "Get a life!" Still was a good plug.

    Tivo made it to the supreme court tonight. It was on 'First Monday'. While in the 'robing room' getting ready to take their seats on the bench, the justices are talking about a document that most of them had read to prepare for the case. One justice mentioned that the document was boring. Another justice mentioned that if he thought that was boring, he had a Tivo installation manual that he could read. :)

    Or something to that effect. :)

    It really has been all over the place, lately, hasn't it?

    From recent memory (I've got a TVEyes keyword setup. Makes TiVo-spotting trivial).

    The Price Is Right*
    Hollywood Squares*
    The Early Show
    Late Night

    *these I'm pretty sure are compensated mentions -- they were prizes on those shows.


    Of course, the only problem with TVEyes is that it can be a spoiler. I think the Will & Grace mention might have been funnier if I didn't expect it.

    IIRC, the quote was to the opposite effect. The reference was to a well-written document like the Tivo manual.

    This week or last, Time magazine had a book review by Lev Grossman on Jean Auel's fourth sequel to Cave of the Bear. It's called The Shelters of Stone. The five novels are Neolithic sagas inspired by her visit to the painted caves at Lascaux about 25 years ago.

    it was ACTUALLY something to the effect of

    " I don't know, I thought it was kind of interesting reading" (the document in question).

    "Well if you liked that, I have a TiVo manual for you that should get a pulitzer"

    1. Rosie or one of her guests mentioned Tivo in 3 episodes last week. On one, she signed a Tivo Series 2 for Tivo to auction for charity. (Didn't give one to each member of her audience, however)

    2. Letterman mentioned it last night, although he was using it in an excuse for not watching Survivor. Vecepia asked him if he'd seen any of the shows and he said "I Tivoed them."

    Today on the Boers and Bernstein show on WMVP (670), Terry Boers was talking about how stupid the Fridge Perry Celebrity Boxing match was last night, and Dan Bernstein said, “That’s what you get for watching something that stupid, you got what you deserved.” Terry replied, “I didn’t watch it, I TiVoed it.” Dan replied, “What a waste of disk space!”

    TiVO was the part of the grand prize package on "Beat the Geeks" last week. Probably a bit old, but new to me.
