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?

Fireflyz says: I never seemed to watch much tv over the festive season, but I do recall flicking through at some point seeing that there were so many ancient repeats of american tv series and sitcoms. It seems to be the norm every Christmas, so was expecting it. I do think there may not have been so many kids and family Christmas movies shown like there have been in the past, which is a shame for my kids. We watched a few videos, lucky Santa thinks ahead and buys a few as gifts for us.
