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?

I also pick up a few cheap DVDs and TV shows at the sales and watch these. I'm lucky in that I have a huge DVD collection and usually just select a few of my favourite movies to add to the mix. I also tend to spend more time on the computer at night during this silly season. I was disappointed with the ABC morning show in that they made no attempt with Christmas decorations. You would have had no idea it was the festive season on the ABC Morning News show. ABC and SBS had consistently reasonable programs and also some new ones to boot in this period. And if you are a sports fan there's always tennis, cricket and golf to fall back on!!
