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?

Being a poor sleeper, the selection on TV during the night was OK and some of the early morning repeats were actually rather interesting. There would be a large viewing audience very disappointed with the selection, or lack of in all genres. The temptation of paid TV would become more enticing, rather sad really. Personally it was a rather nice break from the channel wars and we all have the option to turn off the "Goggle-Box".
