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?

June says: I agree totally with both Jezemeg8 and Chris, I too hate all these reality shows, in fact some of them should be renamed "Unreality" because the people behave so over the top and a lot of the judges are hard to believe. I quite like some christmas type shows but some of the movies are the same ones they show every year. I have to admit that I have been enjoying the tennis over the last 2 or 3 weeks but I am not a cricket fan and find it terribly boring ( apologies to all the cricket fans) Maria Sharapova gets a bit irritating with the constant shrieking, (funny how she does not do it when she is practising hard with someone else.) Looking forward to Downton Abbey now.
