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?

smokie says: Christmas always brings re-runs. What is disappointing is that they advertise new release shows and then it turns out to be a repeat. They don't even bother to run new movies.
I have pay tv but couldn't be bothered, they didn't really run new programs or movies until end of January. So still all repeats. Did manage to find one new show that I liked, but it only started last week. By the time I remember it's on, it's now up against a return to new episods of my other favourites. Can't keep taping things I never get around to watching.
Very disappointing
