Anyone have the last 15 minutes of tonight's 24 season premiere?

January 15, 2006 @ 8:57am

If you live on the east coast, have TiVo and recorded the two-hour season premiere of 24 tonight, odds are you got screwed out of the last 15 minutes of the show since Fox's football coverage ran 15 minutes over and TiVo doesn't record extra unless you tell it to in advance.

So I called DirecTV, since we have a combination DirecTV/TiVo receiver and told them I wanted to order the west coast feed of Fox for the night. Clever, right? Well, they refuse to sell a channel for other time zones in a time zone that already gets that channel. But what if their TiVo missed the last fifteen minutes of a season premiere? The customer service rep explained that this was not the first call he had received on this subject and that shows are usually repeated later in the season.


I know that tv schedules are packed and that airing the missing 15 minutes for all of the people who missed it tonight is not likely to happen before tomorrow night's next two hours of the show, but someone needs to put this on the Internet: Fox, TiVo, DirecTV, iFilms, someone.

Telling me to wait a few months and catch the show in reruns is moronic.
