Curious to know whether the CBS series $#*! My Dad Says is as hilarious as the Twitter feed it’s based upon? Then you might want to double-check your TiVo now. Although network execs thought symbols would be the smartest way to get around the profanity in the comedy’s real title, they probably didn’t take into account DVRs when they came up with the name. Even if viewers could remember the exact way CBS chose to …

Technology Battles Primetime, Networks Don’t Give Up

Thanks to tape recorders, DVR, video on demand, webcasts, and more, statistics have revealed that not only have the 27 series that premiered last year bombed, but nearly 9% of prime time viewers went M.I.A. since last year. Okay, okay, so maybe it’s not completely technology’s fault. After all, studios do allow their episodes to be streamed online, and yeah, there was that little itty-bitty writer’s strike that went on for 100 days. Either way, …

I couldn’t wait to see The Riches because I’m a huge fan of Eddie Izzard, however, I haven’t had …

I found this bit of news particularly interesting because I can relate. Seems Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is getting a large portion of viewership from those who record the show on DVR and watch it later. Count me as one of those viewers. I typically record it because I watch What About Brian during that timeslot. Last season, What About Brian was so great, but this season—eh. Studio 60, on the other hand, …
