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?

elaine joseph says: TV over the xmas, January was awful...all the really good series tend to end by the second week of December, and are replaced with movies. This sounds good except its the same movies that I watched as a child and now going on for 40+ I'm sort of over them now. Naturally, its school holidays so every old favourite that you may have had when you had your childrent going through the school phase have also now discoloured.

Can the TV magnets not come up with some innovate, new ideas. TV seems to now be either Crime & Investigation, Comedies (no problem some are really good) but a variety would be great. Or reality t.v.

Some forms of reality t.v. should really have stopped in the writing stage.

Well here's hoping new tv series and movies will be received shortly.

Have a great day everyone:-)
