      Hey!  To set the record straight, *I* didn't record Access Hollywood.  My TiVo recorded those things as Suggestions.  That's what the (S) appended to the tweet means.  I have little to no control over it.  Tongue Out

       

      Feel free to make fun of the non-(S) recordings though.  There are plenty of crappy shows I actually DO watch.

      Ok, since the "S"s are off limits, how about...

      Cheaters: "Husband has another woman"

      Cheaters: "Boyfriend has found someone new"

      Cheaters: "Wife gives her love to someone new"

       

      Hmm...

      LOL, Isn't it worse that your Tivo has decided based on your TV tastes that you would like shows like Access Hollywood?!

      It's not based solely on taste.  For a while, it thought I loved Univision and Spanish television.  Though, El Sabado Gigante is pretty great.

      Twittering Tivo is the latest result of more disk space. I am glad that in the future I will be able to show the public how much I love to watch TMZ make fun of people.
