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?

Robyn says: The quality of television programming in Australia is dismal at best -- usually this worsens over Christmas and the school holidays throughout the year. Australian Pay TV is also dismal compared to what is available elsewhere in the world. However, improvements will not happen when a person, no longer a citizen or resident of Australia, has such a controlling influence on the media. This person has proven in other countries that he and his organisation are only interested in making money, not the quality of what they produce. Perhaps we should turn the box off more often and read, converse or play games with other family members.
