Nobel TiVo

I’m sure more that a few of you watch The Daily Show. If you don’t, I don’t care why not so don’t tell me. In case you missed it, Monday’s show had Jimmy Carter (yes, that Jimmy Carter). At one point he mentioned he had TiVo, and used it to record The Daily Show to watch during the day. I’m not sure what I found more fascinating, that an 80 year old would have TiVo and know how to use it, or that an ex-President would have TiVo and know how to use it. I don’t care what your politics are, that is just cool.

Now the real question is, why don’t more people have TiVo (or some other PVR)? I guess it’s a good thing that most people don’t. According to the networks and content providers, if people started fast forwarding through commercials fire and brimstone would come down from the skies, rivers and seas would boil, forty years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanoes, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together - mass hysteria. Or something.

I love the daily show! I should get a tivo so I could watch it without staying up that late, but more monthly subscriptions on top of a $60 a month cable bill is too much for me. I know you could get the one time charge for tivo, but do I really want to spend more time watching network television and less time watching dvds? I think I will just stay up a half hour later and watch tv the old fashioned way. Live

Trust me, once you get used to never having to watch commercials and not being tied to TV schedules, the $10 a month will be the easiest money you

Someone, I think it might have been Wes Phillips or Jon Iverson, coined the phrase "Tivotees." Geoff is right. Once you go Tivo, there's no looking back.
