It’s no secret that Claire and I have been hooked on American Idol this season. This is the first season that we’ve watched (for real!), and I got totally sucked in.
I was having TiVO record the finale last night but then, I couldn’t wait, so I started watching. I was *almost* caught up to live TV when they announced the winner.
Ryan Seacrest had literally just said the Winner David’s last name and that’s when TiVO decided to stop recording! We didn’t get his reaction! We didn’t get to celebrate with him! We didn’t get to hear him sing the last song!
THANKFULLY, TiVO didn’t cut off ONE SECOND earlier, or we would have been left in suspense!!
Certain disaster averted.
But still…that was close!
Normally, you can flip to Live TV and then rewind half an hour, but that only works if one of the two receivers is actually on the channel you want to see.
I was only six minutes off, but it was enough to miss the entire ending.
So, I waited until this morning to search on Youtube, and I found the part I missed!!

For those of you keeping track at home, our TiVO cut off right at minute 2:55 of the above video. See? That was CLOSE.
And, for the record…Claire and I were VERY excited to see that “our contestant” was named the winner. Her prediction was right!
