To be fair, it's not as if most tv shows during the rest of the year in Australia is worth watching either. The majority of prime-time for almost all channels are filled with brainless comedy series bought from the States or cheap reality shows or contests year-round. Right now I watch less than 3 hours of tv a week, mostly for the news.
For me, it's somewhat of the opposite. During Christmas and holiday period the usual half-baked tv series take a break for news, documentaries and the occasional historical recount. While old and certainly reruns, they are at least worth the time invested in watching, as opposed to the usual stuff.
