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?

Every channel was repeats, they give you all these extra channels and they are full of rubbish. I don't know how we thought some of those shows were funny back in the day, I look at them now and wonder how I ever watched them.
I can't wait till Febuary to get some decent TV, and have all my favourite shows return, the only problem then will be they will have them all on at the same time. You just can't win. Thank god for the Internet.
