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?

Other than that the kids movies weren't great... or didn't start at good times for kids. Evening movies for grown-ups were pretty poor too.

I did watch some catch-up tv on the laptop as I missed some episodes of things and away from home and far from my pvr.

Generally I watched any channel but could have done with more Xmassy stuff, yes!
