If you look forward to the TiVo Tips and recommendations included in the TiVo newsletter, you’ll love this: We’ve gone a step further by bringing you a short, weekly video show!

The Badoop Badoop Show,” affectionately named after TiVo’s unmistakable soundmark, is your fun, fast-paced weekly guide to what’s hot, what’s quirky, and what’s unexpected in the world of entertainment. All topped with great TiVo Tips at the end of each episode.

But I have to warn you, this is not your average entertainment news show. (ET’s got that market down.) Filmed in my real San Francisco living room, we’ll feature some interesting guests and topics, random pop trivia, and kitschy-cool tidbits from around the world of TV.

In fact, you won’t believe who entered my living room first: Check out these two, strapping men in white… (I bet you’ll recognize them.)

So tune in each week by going to http://www.youtube.com/tivo. Make sure to subscribe so you know when a new episode is posted. You can also find us on www.myspace.com/tivo, Facebook, My TiVo, iTunes, or Get a Season Pass right on your TV?learn how further down.

But most importantly, keep your feedback and suggestions coming our way!

Love to the TiVo Family!

TiVo Tip: Scare Up Halloween Programs with a Guru Guide

If you’re sweet on October 31st, we’ve got some ghoulishly good Guru Guides to keep you—and your little goblins—in the spirit of Halloween all month long. And have no fear if you don’t see “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” just yet: TiVo will scare it up as soon as it enters the 14-day guide window.

Classic: From Dracula and the Wolfman to Norman Bates and Damien, these classic horror movies make you lock the doors and close the blinds. Schedule time with Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, and the Thorn family via this list of classic horror tales.

Slasher: What’s scarier: A knife-wielding psychopath sporting a William Shatner mask inside-out or the long, razor-sharp claws of a man who can kill you in your dreams? You’ll meet both and more in this list of slasher flicks to scare you silly this Halloween. And whatever you do… “Don’t fall asleep!”

Thriller: Whether you’re running from a convicted killer to the safety of your houseboat or slowly realizing that you’re a superhero, this list of thriller favorites promises to be hair-raising. But if you plan to laugh, please extinguish your cigar first.

Kids: Need something for the little ghouls and goblins to watch while they’re carving pumpkins? This list of Halloween shows is approved for monsters of all ages.

Bruce Campbell: It’s true: We love Bruce Campbell. Whether he’s playing “Ash” in the “Evil Dead” movies or the king of rock-and-roll himself, Bruce Campbell is everything that’s great about B-movies.

Bonus Tip: Want to find more shows to go bump on your DVR in the middle of the night? Try a keyword WishList search for MONSTER, WEREWOLF, ZOMBIE, HALLOWEEN, NIGHTMARE, etc. Or select Category: Movies, Sub-category: Horror.

If you’re broadband-connected, you’ll find TiVo Guru Guides under Find Programs & Downloads > KidZone Recommendations & Guru Guides. Or, under Find TV on tivo.com.
