He knew he didn't have anything scheduled, and we can assume (wrongly, perhaps), that he has suggestions disabled.
This is the only aspect of this whole topic that I can even understand. I'm not saying the gold-star haters are wrong, just that I can't understand getting worked up over something like that. But the interruption of live TV (especially during prime time, as it was in the UK) I can at least understand.
Having said that, I'd never be in the situation, because I absolutely don't watch anything live. Anything. Everything I watch, I schedule to record. I might watch it 15-minutes behind live, but if I catch up, I look for something else in Now Playing to watch.
But I do understand that some people watch live TV, and can appreciate that it can be annoying to be interrupted. Maybe what we need (it's been suggested before) is a "lock tuner" option. Basically, it would behave as if it were recording the program, but wouldn't actually record it (some people don't have the space to spare, audio channels can't be recorded on a DTiVo, etc.)
