My TiVo right now is recording the pilot of a new show, Jack & Bobby because I told it to automatically record suggestions. There are some other shows it’s recorded as suggestions, namely Reno 911!, Chappelle’s Show and Good Eats. Those two I understand, because I have given them both two thumbs up. I just don’t understand why it’s giving me Jack & Bobby.
I went into the extended info page (go to the Program page where you can play or delete a show then hit Info on your remote) and looked for Similar Programs. None there, but some shows in my Suggestions list didn’t have Similar Programs either.
This may be just another case of My TiVo Thinks I’m Gay without the anthropomorphizing. What strikes me as odd about this suggestion is the fact that the show is so new (the first season just started), the fact that I’m getting a rerun of the pilot episode and the fact that WB already used unconventional promotions for the series.
So do you tell your TiVo to record suggestions and, if so, did it record the pilot of Jack & Bobby?
