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 am totally sick of re-runs and old stuff, occasionally it is OK but the consistent old rubbish that we had this year was possibly the worst I have ever endured!! Why should we have to rent DVD's or get Foxtel when we have free to air, many pensioners cannot afford these and have to put up with what is on. Also the number of ads seems to have increased over the holidays, what's going on guys? And while I am at it , what is wrong with one channel (7 dig) showing sport (i.e. Tennis) and leaving all the other fta channel 7's to show decent programs, etc etc? The programmers need to re educate themselves on what people want to watch as more of us are staying home as drink driving is not advisable these days.
