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?

mapache says: I usually am quite busy before Christmas so don't get to watch a lot, but i get fed up with re-runs of shows. I will often watch a show until the re-runs star then I get bored and don't bother with the new series whenever it starts. there were a couple of shows I was able to watch over the holidays but again don't like the re-runs. Also get weary of sport on TV if I enjoy a spectator sport I need to see it live and can't watch on TV. What I cannot understand is when TV station has multiple channels available why do they show the same thing on all of them. Those are the stations I don't want to watch. SBS has been my preferred channel over the holiday period.
