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?

Multismudge says: the hours over Christmas and New Year was quite "interesting", that we people of Australia are treated to inane, mundane crap.
I do love the old tv shows - but when thay have been aired over 100 times - gets a bit boring.
When you know that there have been lots and lots of "new" shows over 1,5, 10, years. Just cannot understand why we keep getting repeat after repeat.
Is it laziness on the part of the programmer, is it to do with licensing of particular program or the cost of ads at any time. What is the drama?
When tv channels keep showing the same piece of film from the news you tend to not want to see it. They have to keep updating to keep your interest or we turn it off. The floods, earthquakes, shootings, fires (and so much more) they just keep using same footage. EVEN channel ABC 24 .. most disappointed!
WE WANT UPDATED NEWS.. not rehash! from all channels of communication , radio, tv, newspapers, internet.
on that cheery note :
HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY ..... every-one.
