New Annoying TiVo Ads

Do marketers sit around their house looking for things to put ads on? A reader writes in with a tip about TiVo:

    When I finished watching this weeks episode of Scrubs, I was prompted by a rather annoying TiVo message. “Are you done with this program?” But this was not the regular TiVo deletion prompt. I am usually given two options, “Delete now” or “Keep this recording”, this time I was given a third, “Get your BK Xbox games today!” followed by the Burger King logo.

Um, this is annoying and lame. —MEGHANN MARCO
