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?

maurbug says: I think the shows over this non rating period are absolutely appalling, most of them at night are second and third repeats of Big Bang Theory or one of the many shows sent over from USA, yes they can be comical, but come on, we have seen them so many times that we can practically predict what is going to be said next. I dont mind the sports shows such as cricket or tennis, but even the morning shows are all repeats, I basicallly leave the tv on whilst I am doing things on the computer but still in all, surely they could dig up something different. The Christmas movies werent too bad, but again just repeats.
