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?

annette robson says: I thought the programmes shown were nothing but full of repeats and Christmas day viewing was pathetic,not that I am interested or have time to watch tv during this time,I did however feel for those that are housebound and rely on tv to entertain them.I have pay tv (sky) and even that was full of repeats which really annoyed me as we pay to have this luxury so deserve better movies etc.I feel the length of time is slack for new programmes to start up,it should only be 2 weeks at the most.
