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?

Redda says: Christmas TV is like the present you don't want. It is something you've already seen and found bland. There is also a tendency to saturate the screen with programs featuring policing, breath testing and tired repeats of long gone quiz shows. The preponderance of unsolicited threats and warnings about drink as distinct from drunk driving are insulting. How anyone can be educated by or enjoy watching programs that threaten or harass the viewer during the festive season is beyond intelligence and reason. TV is for entertainment and information not brainwashing, sensationalism and overstatement.
