The TV programming over Xmas and January has been absolutely awful. The TV Channels seem to think that everyone goes away on holidays somewhere or partying every day and night, and so they don't want to watch TV. Either that, or they only want to watch the cricket and the tennis. Don't get me wrong - I like both cricket and the tennis - but not everyone does. In actual fact, though, most people are still at home, doing the things they always do, and still wanting to watch TV as usual. So, what do they give us? Nothing but repeat after repeat of our favourite shows, or movies we have seen every Christmas (or Easter, etc) for the last 5-10 years. I wish everyone would write to every TV station, telling them how they feel about the way they are being treated, and asking them to gives us the respect we deserve as loyal viewers. The real answer to the problem would be if the ratings were done 24/7/365, then they might be willing to show us some decent TV programs over the holiday season. Also, it would be nice if we could see some movies which reflect the true meaning of Christmas instead of the ridiculous, so-called comedies and Santa Claus movies that are repeated every year ad nauseum.
