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?

jasia says: I think the quality of free to air is poor at the best of times - so don't watch much of it at all - I guess that puts me in the 'don't care' bracket....we are fortunate to have pay TV so have a huge choice...and then there is always IQ which I have when there is really nothing else I want to see....
But I do agree that the mainstream channels have little regard for the viewing public.
