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?

I am now a single woman living alone in a small town with no transport to even go to the beaches near by so was totally disgusted with the rubbish on tv over the holiday - xmas/nw yr period. As this was my only form of entertainment I thankfully caught up on some pre recorded programs on my dvd recorder hard drive.
A lot of the repeats were so old that u get so sick of them and like, really old series that are re runs over and over again every year...come on TVNZ get it together and give us - the no choice but to be at home folks something more interesting and entertaining to watch - am so sick and tired of the old rubbish you persist in putting on AIR at this time of year.
