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?

It apears that all broadcasters in Australia take a holiday and don't care for their consumers.
At least in the UK there used to be a proliferation of Christmas specials.
Nowadays it is only Doctor Who. Not that I am complaining about that programme. I have watched Doctor Who since it first started with William Hartnell starring.
The re-runs being shown are out of order and no consistency.
There is also a tendency to change the timing of the programmes so one needs to be vigilant when trying to record the programme to watch at a later date
