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?

gp says: Yes, definitely noticed the change in the type of programs that the TV networks were programming. Complete rubbish! Also Pay TV (Foxtel) decided to cut some of the channels on offer (mostly movie channels) without notifying subscriber & yet the monthly fee remains the same. I think it's time to say goodbye to Foxtel & start flicking through the new channels. I found better movies on the new Go channel than Foxtel. They may not be the latest but hiring DVD's will be much cheaper than what I am paying per month..
I didn't think the networks got into the Xmas spirit as in past years.
The one channel that I enjoyed watching during this period was Go channel.
