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?

Holdengirl says: The choice and quality of TV programs is pretty bad at the moment, especially if you are not into tennis or cricket! Anything else is repeats that have been on 10+ times before or if it's a new show it's from overseas and usually not at all interesting to me.
I don't remember any really Christmassy shows being on so if they were shown they mustn't have interested me.
The only channel I can praise is ABC2, my kids watch this some days, especially when it's 35 degrees + so they are locked inside in the aircon. ABC2 had some good Christmas episodes in the kids favourite shows. Giggle and Hoot comes to mind as being new and seasonal all the time so at least the kids got some festive spirit on their shows.
