Hit or Miss

What was with the TiVo visibility on primetime this week? On Friends, there were several closeup shots with Monica and Chandler’s Sony brand TiVo in the background. And on Ellen, the TiVo was featured heavily in the plot (though it didn’t look like Ellen was actually holding a TiVo remote, nor did her TV make those fun little noises us TiVo customers have come to love).
