THEME:   adding an S to a phrase changes its meaning
   
GOOD ONES:    
All theme entries are clever, but I like these best:   
Comment about paparazzi?   LOOK WHOS STALKING   
Alpine fabric sample?   SWISS SWATCH [and Swatch is a brand name]   
Forgetful night watchman?   KEYLESS SENTRY   
Stonewaller?   MASON   
Sites for mice   PADS [computer mice]   
Passing remarks?   OBIT   
Bid word   ADIEU ["bid adieu"]   
Short reply?   ANS   
Jazz group   NBA [Utah b.ball team]   
LCD component   LEAST [Lowest Common Denominator, not the TV screen]   
Photo finish   MATTE [oldie but goodie]   
You can see right through it   IRIS   
   
BTW:   
MIO is not used in English   
   
Live-income filler   ON ONE [Sorry but I don't get it]   
   
RATING: ;D ;D ;D   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

If a family has a stay at home mom or dad, they have to live ON ONE income.

Thanks, rbe---

As a hyphenated term, live-in makes no sense with filler, but "live ON ONE income" makes sense.  The way I should have read the clue was "What can fill the space between live and in?"  For space fillers, I would prefer an underscore [___] rather than a hyphen [-] --- unless confusion is the intent.
