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?

Growler says: Very true that we are left on free to air with repeats and also shows that have failed to rate well overseas and thus our local networks pick them up for a cheaper price. Sometimes, there can be a hidden gem that starts in summer (rates well) and then continues on during the ratings period. Gilmour Girls springs to mind.

For me personally, I am not too fussed as I tend to watch Foxtel and in particular the feast of sport that is available from the Cricket 20/20 Bigbash to the soccer A-League. Enough to keep me entertained! :)
