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?

EthelGumnut says: I only watch ABC and SBS channels in the normal way of things. They were possibly mildly better than the commercial channels during the christmas period, but only slightly. Over the holiday period, we normal catch up on watching DVDs we've acquired during the year, and on programs we've recorded onto the hard drive, but haven't yet watched.

I concur with your other respondents that most channels do show a lot of rubbish, particularly at that time of year.
