Grrr. TIVO

Ok, TIVO. Get a little smarter.

Yes, it recorded two hours of the season finale of American Idol.

IT MISSED THE LAST TWO MINUTES!!!! WTF? I had to go to freaking cnn.com to find out who won.

I think everyone missed the last 2 min of it. Our Dish Network DVR is set to record either one or two extra min. There was 2 hours and 4 min recorded.. and it still missed the last bit.

I blame Lost.

It's a live event...Fox probably ran over.

If it were me, I'd have padded the recording.

I'm tempted to say that your tivo has more taste than you - it knew you shouldn't be watching that drivel in the first place. Then I remember. First, I tivoed the 2 hr finale of Dancing with the Stars, making a conscious decision to choose that over House (it seems House wasn't on last night anyway, but I didn't know that when I selected the priorities). Second, and far more damning, when I heard on the radio news that Blake and Jordan were the AI finalists, I immediately had to call a friend who avidly watches, even though I'd only watched AI once with her. They were our two picks, and I wanted to gloat over our missed A&R careers.

So, what I really have to do is commiserate, advise you to pad the recording, as suggested by cfred, which is a choice when taping live shows, and chide the pretentious twits who decided that 2 1/2 hrs was insufficient to announce ONE winner between TWO contestants. DwtS managed to pick among THREE couples and do it in slightly less time.

And, wow, I think this post is longer than both of the shows combined. *eye roll*

So who won? Who were the last two? I have no clue.

The last two were Jordin Sparks (the 17 year old girl) and Blake Lewis (the Beatboxer). Jordin won. She had the better voice, even though Blake was the better overall entertainer.

Right before yours, there is an entry by someone else with the exact same content.

It proves that TIVO is evil and prejudiced against AI.
