I personally think an online database of the viewing habits of 
myth-users would be nice, stricly anonymous of course..

something to the effects of "people that watched this show also watched 
this show" "would you like to record it?"

and just typical stats of most watched show etc.. no learning involved 
in the procedure just the social aspect.
