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?

Evie says: Too many repeats and very poor content all round! It's rather insulting to the general public to put such terrible shows on and it certainly demonstrates the power of the dollar in this industry. The television stations have very little interest in their viewers. Their programming is purely based around 'ratings' and they feel they can throw a repeat in the middle of a series or do any last minute changes they like. Unfortunately, unless everybody turns off their favorite shows, the stations will continue to treat the viewing public in this way. Actually, I'm not sure I'm willing to go without my weekly dose of NCIS quite yet either,
