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?

tonylovesotis says: OMG, TV programming has been just woeful over the past month or so. We don't watch free to air TV (other than ABC and SBS), but we are avid Pay TV watchers and their programming was just repeat after repeat after repeat. There has been literally nothing new to watch since late November on Pay TV. The only channel that changes is The Weather Channel!

What I don't understand is why does Pay TV also have a ratings period? Isn't one of the reasons we pay for subscription TV so that there will always be something worth watching? hmmmm obviously not.
