TiVo's stupid "Similar shows"

I noticed this recently and started looking at the "similar programs" list more closely and it seems to be a trend. (I'm home sick and extremely bored) Try to find some of the dumbest examples of what TiVo considers to be a "similar program".

Here are a couple that I've come across:

CSI - similar to Everybody Loves Raymond
Auto Racing - similar to Rugrats

I know. Whoever provides that information must not be a addictive TV watcher. Apparantly 'Without A Trace' is similar to 'Everybody loves Ramond' too. What's there obsession?

Anthony LaPaglia and Ray Romano are both Italian?

Dang, I thought I knew my TiVo inside and out. Where the heck is this list? Is it on the TiVo or on the website? I see a reference in the FAQ to "If you like this try..." but no indication of where to find it. Thanks.

TG, if you hit the "Info" button while you're in a show in NP, it will show you various info about that show, like Original Air Date, guest stars, and if you scroll down it will show you what TiVo thinks are similar shows.

The "similar programs" data is generated from Season Pass data. That is, TiVo sees that a lot of people who have a Season Pass for CSI also have a Season Pass for Everybody Loves Raymond.

Well, since the TiVo seems to know what it is doing, let's just let it think that.
