DVR users: Tonight only: New Names for Daily Show and Colbert Report


Any DVR users reading this. If you have set a TiVo Season Pass or Moxi Series to record the Daily Show and Colbert Report... you may not get tonight's episodes. Because strictly speaking, they are not on the schedule for tonight.

Instead, the two shows are combining for a Midterm Midtacular. If you want to see it, you'll have to ask for it by name. You'll need to go in and set a one-time recording event for Midterm Midtacular.

Most of the time, DVR software that knows to record a show by title rather than schedule is a big help. But when the network changes the title of the show, the DVR won't get it.

Mickeleh's Take: Set your DVR to record Midterm Midtacular.
