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?

Litaq says: It hasn't changed over the years, the programs on TV over christmas and January are just some repeats and boring stuff. I was away for 3 weeks overseas after Christmas so it didn't bother me much. Leading to Christmas there weren't much on Free-to-air TV, nor did they put on Christmassy movies. Luckily we have Pay TV and there many more programs to choose but most of all Foxtel also have Christmas movie marathons leading to Christmas everyday so that was awesome.
Now I just got back and starting to watch some of Foxtel's regular programs that I like.
