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?

Ermar says: I agree with Richard. I have pay TV and they also tend to use repeats at this time too. Maybe it is something to do with ratings. They do not want to put on new programmes that will have low ratings due to people being outdoors and not watching TV on holiday.
We hardly ever put on the TV over Christmas. We watched DVD's or played board games such as Scrabble and Monopoly. We had forgotten what fun they can be and you have more interaction than TV.
