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?

Sadieinoz says: No I don't think it is as "Christmassy" as it once was except on the kids channels. We have pay TV so have a bit more choice but there is nothing really riveting on which is maybe just as well as you can go out and know you won't miss much. I do enjoy watching the cricket on free to air TV but apart from the news that's about it. Oh and old episodes of Countdown on Rage as they seem to do every year at this time. And Doctor Who, thanks ABC for not making us wait.
