A new phrase entering the  FEB 12 2001

A new phrase entering the lexicon: TiVo bomb - n. When the TiVo records several episodes of the same show in a short period of time, deleting all previous recordings and hampering the owner's ability to record anything else until all those shows are watched or deleted. Sample usage: "No, I didn't watch last week's West Wing; a TiVo bomb got me and deleted it, taping the entire 8-hour Behind the Music marathon instead."
