No, "Screw ou" is not a new primetime FOX TV series, it's actually what TiVo recently said to their loyal customers when releasing OS 7.2. Seems certain shows now get red flags next to their name when it doesn't want to be stored for more than a certain date. Yikes. Could it be that this rash of spam ("Do you like Br/\Dy Bunch? Get full season on DVD!") is scaring the TV industry? Do we care? The new OS also will block transfers of some shows to TiVo to go and turns the DRM-knob up to 11. Rumors are that this all might be a glitch but a lot of people aren't convinced yet.
