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 loved the repeats on ABC, but I also watched the documentaries and films on NITV. Congratulations SBS for this new channel.
I can't remember watching 7, 9 or 10 except for GWN7 to catch up with the local news and weather every now and again.
Pay TV must rub their hands with glee over Christmas and the New Year as I'm sure a lot of families get themselves a subscription for Christmas.
I spent more time with my nose in a book than I did watching TV.
