As if any of you still needed to know that. But as for me, I had not marveled at recorded television since my aunt used to record "Days of Our Lives" on VCR. I have finally joined the 21st century. I have Tivo. (insert funny tympani error noise here.)
I've never been much of a TV girl. I tend to watch two ends of a snob's spectrum that starts with "educational" and ends with "absurdist humor". PBS, the Daily Show, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sifl and Olly, MST3K, and the occasional stupefying indulgence of a Sex and the City marathon or Metal Day on Vh1. I couldn't tell you a thing about when what regular, popular shows are on. I have never watched American Idol or America's Next Top Anorexic or any of that hoo-ha. Point is? I just don't watch TV that much, and Tivo hasn't really changed that. And I would blather on about “this is the way you’re supposed to watch TV” and “advertisements are soooo yesterday” but instead I will just say this.
Jon Stewart, my dear, how I’ve missed you!
