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?

mumtime says: No kidding??? It seems to be the same old repeats every year. There were not even alot of Christmas movies or cartoons on for the children this year. Is this because TV stations are afraid they will insult some religion that does not believe in Christmas?? I thought we lived in Australia?? These days we go to the shops in late November, early December and stock up on all the DVD's we have been looking forward to watching all year. Make our own TV :) Free to air and Foxtel TV are both as bad as each other.
If I have to watch one more 'sneak peak' of an up and coming show I think I will scream....they just make you NOT want to watch the show and half the time they have sneak peaked all the good bits anyway.
