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?

Jeollie says: You can pretty well tell that it's obvious there's no channel that's after ratings in the months/time you mention... The viewing is appalling for any age bracket, young and older! The lead up to Christmas this year didn't feel "Christmassy" at all, only the odd business advertisement sending seasons greetings, nothing like it used to be and little or NONE Yuletide viewing type shows/movies... As a child you knew Christmas was coming just from the tv, but not anymore... The viewing after Christmas/new year has been dismal and if you don't like sport, ie cricket and tennis then you must be have even fewer options of finding something to watch (on free to air tv) I guess those with pay tv have more options, but even with poor free to air tv, I won't be getting it..
