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?

Commerical TV can get (insert naughty potty word here!) The ads are louder & more intrusive, the pop ups get bigger & bigger, the content worse and worse.
The internet, Netflix, etc will kill commerical TV in the next decade. And I can't wait. Networks have treated the viewer with contempt for decades. Now that chicken is comming home to roost.And bite them hard.
Already we're watching more programes via youtube than we watch on free to air.
