Tv over christmas and january

Did you know that over Xmas and in January, the TV networks take little interest in how many people watch their shows? So you might have noticed that the type of programs that are on change from the usual ones during this time, until the ratings war starts again in February. During this holiday time programming, what did you think of the quality of TV content? Did you even care what was showing as you were on holiday? Or did you use this time to relax in front of the 'box' and flick between channels? Perhaps it was convenient for you to keep your kids entertained? Maybe you have Pay TV and didn't even watch the 'mainstream' channels? Did you find it 'Christmassy' enough or do you think the networks just don't bother with that these days? Was there one channel you felt outdid the others with its programing?

DEBOCO says: I was extremely disappointed with the viewing over the Christmas period. There were none of the traditional movies on, except for The Santa Clause & 2. Christmas holidays, whether you're at home or away, is a time for relaxing and re-charging your batteries, and watching TV is a great way to do that. TV stations should put blockbusters on during this period, so people can enjoy watching a great movie at night and not worry about having to get up for work or school the next day. Being able to watch great movies can be a whole family activity and a lot cheaper than having to pay for movie tickets at the cinema. Isn't that what Christmas is all about - spending time with your love ones and spending time together?
