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?

Ziah says: Spent Halloween at Disneyland, Christmas at Disney World and New Year's at Universal Florida - and for ten weeks we didn't turn a tv on - so I can't comment or complain about what was on tv anywhere, let alone in Australia. I know that overall the US tv offerings are ten times better than the rubbish we get here (except the good US shows).

But in previous years, we've always resorted to shows we've DVR'd or store bought movies on DVD/Blu Ray or more game playing because the rubbish that is shown across all tv channels is pathetic. And that includes PayTV.
