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?

Uj says: The silly season is also known to me as the boring season for T.V. We have Foxtel, but it's just as terrible for lack of new fresh stuff. I only watch a few shows a week that I record (allows me to sit and watch them without interruption from the kidlets & not to mention they're 'not G' viewing) and those few shows are all postponed til late January or February. I'm not a telly watcher for the sake of watching and free to air shows don't tend to attract my attention 1 or 2 series aside, so in this boring season we tend to watch our DVD's, Fox has also just changed all it's programming and for the worse I might add. As for it being "Christmassy", I don't really notice what shows are on for that particular reason. I don't tend to dress up our house for the season, tree is up of course, but just because it's Christmas on the 25th, I don't like how everything changes for the month. I don't think I particular favour any channel more than the rest, I tend to pick the bits I like from each and at the end of the day after they're all recorded and when I'm watching them, I can't even remember what channel they're p.s...happy travels for your next venture
