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?

geromam says: No PayTV for me. Usually too busy at other times of the year, so I have more time to actually watch TV at this time of year while I am on holidays.
I have really enjoyed some of the docos presented on SBS and SBS2. Particularly Louis Theroux (I used to think he was a bit silly but the doco on dementia during the week, was indeed very special). Sunday Best top 10 has also been great. So SBS gets my vote.
