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?

I would start watching something then realize I had seen it,I must have said this at least 50 times during the 'holiday's'. We just turned off and enjoyed the warmer nights outside going for walks and watching a DVD(can borrow from the library these days). We also played board games which the kid's love. As for 'christmassy' things I think they are very boring,some of the shows were just extended adverts to buy more 'stuff' that won't be recycled but filling up land fill. The only channel that I could give a mention is ABC but even they had repeats. Try the new Indigenous TV some interesting watching there,very different.
