Philo Farnsworth on the moon

Soonafter Philo Farnsworth invented TV, he saw the mostly trivial purposes we were using it for and recommended to his children that they not invest much time watching it.

However, he did become happy along with his kids when they first watched the Apollo astronauts land on the moon, via his powerful invention.

I wonder what Mr. Farnsworth would think of TIVO, considering how it insidiously hooks watchers in, sometimes for long unhealthy spells.
