Chicago Tribune's Ryan coming to a Tivo near you

If you’re a Tivo user and are also a fan of Maureen Ryan, then today’s you’re lucky day. The TV critic, via her paper, the Chicago Tribune, has inked a deal with Tivo to automatically push her recommended shows to Tivos across the country who subscribe to the service.

Personally, this sounds rather weird to these ears. The idea of someone else, even if they are an expert, recommending what I should watch — and filling my hard drive with the recommendations — is very odd. But then she’s not going to recommend the stuff I watch, as she’s not much of a Skinemax fan.
