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?

Skylark says: Commerical TV doesn't broadcast, it merely vomits rubbish. If it wasn't for SBS & ABC, I'd happily disconnect the aerial. We have more free to air channels and less to watch. As for the "Christmyth" programmes, thats just an excuse to air more tired old shows. Years ago, I'd start recording shows in October to last over
Christmyth. Now? I just hook the laptop to the TV and watch what I want, when I want. Screw the commerical networks, they have treated the viewers with contempt for too long, and its about to hurt them big time. Already, we watch more progamming via the 'net than commerical TV. Ch 7,9 &10 as we know them will be gone in 10 years.
