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?

Suegle says: The programming on TV is disasterous at the best of times. I have just gone through major surgery and recovering now so TV is pretty much all the brain can handle and there is absolutely nothing of any value at any time. If a movie is shown it is usually something like "Police Academy" or "Sleepless in Seattle" etc, where you basically know the whole script off by heart anyway. They are outdated and a hopeless waste of time. As for other programming it is just a billionth repeat of the same sitcom. "Friends, Mc Gyver", "Love Boat" where no one is really watching these shows and they just keep repeating them over and over and over again. All these digital channels were SUPPOSED to provide us with more entertainment in digital quality. Half the shows that are run on these channels are still in Black and White. TV stations don't care what they put on at any time of the year and the programmers just hit the replay button without a care in the world. In a word, TV "SUCKS"!!!
