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?

But it would have been nice to have christmas ...y episodes of the kids programmes on the 25th as I think that because of the day of the week christmas fell on? There wasn't much avail. We'd have recorded them & saved them for another day (we did this last year) so when it's raining outside or we all needed quiet time, we call just blob infront of the telly & watch nice christmasy stuff. The kids LOVE christmas episodes of any of the cartoons.
