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?

Chris says: To me the programs during the Christmas break and in January have been very dismal. I really can't say that one channel stood out. They were all bad and to me had no intention of pleasing their viewing public. Some of the shows have been repeated on a regular basis. I can't understand why we can't have ratings all year. That would improve the shows that were being shown. Maybe if some of the people that run the programs had to sit through a few they might change what they put on the tv.
