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?

chance says: Well they certainly didn't give any thought to the elderly, or anyone else whose only link with the outside world was tv. Over christmas and new year, everything seems to close down (all clubs and social networks for the elderly, and lonely) so tv is all they have to occupy their days. What a load of garbage ... everything was a repeat, was a repeat, was a repeat.. Years of repeats - cooking programmes, dancing with the stars, and sad old hasbeen shows. Come on you guys, every year you get big complaints over your lack of thought and insight in to what screens. It's time tvnz started to listen.
