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?

gnome says: It is typical of the Television networks to play the old repeats of shows that they have done for the last thirty years, over and over again. The end of year seems to be the period that the networks allow holidays for their staff which is understandable, but do they think that because it if the festive season we are all away or not watching television. Not everyone can afford Pay TV to be able to have a choice of that many programmes, but with an average of three channels each they would have something decent to watch.
