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?

Bobbert87 says: Way too much sport over the holiday's, and not enough movies especially more in the evenings when winding down the kids. Not that I have any. But have had family and friends mention this.

I don't watch much TV during this period time of the year. More rent out movies or watch from DVD collection.

I didn't actually find a lot of Christmas stuff being show. This would have been awesome to show a christmas movie each night of the week with a couple on the weekends per say.

Didn't find it at all Christmas / Christmas Season.
As for most of us it's when we are full-time and work with only having public holidays off.

So my opinions is that this time of year there is totally a load of rubbish on our screens.
