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?

de1 says: I am rather allergic to TV, particularly over holidays when I;d rather spend time actually communicating with my family, so we tend to watch news programmes, documentaries - and cricket and tennis! (This probably has something to d with the fact that my husband is a radio/TV journalist, so please blame him!!) I'm well aware that the programmes aired over holiday periods tend to be reruns of old ones - and mostly American ones, at that, and it seems a terrific reason to stay away from the TV!!
