I hate non ratings periods, they don’t make sense, if I didn’t download all my television I’d probably appreciate the fact that Nip/Tuck was finally returning to Australian television, but apart from that it doesn’t make sense, its not like we stop watching television!

Anyway, the point I wanted to make was that I love the British tradition of Christmas specials, I first realised it happened when I got into The Office. Its almost like a present from the BBC to enjoy over the break, I can even picture families watching television together.. and all that crap.

This promo from BBC One is a big coming soon to all this years Christmas specials including Little Britain Abroad, The Vicar of Dibley, My Family and The Green Green Grass.

The music is ‘Zat You, Santa Claus?’ by Louis Armstrong.

My family always watches christmas TV together! Doctor Who Christmas specials look like they’ll be a new tradition and there’s always some sort of comedy special on Xmas Day. It’s only ever BBC that’s on in the house. ITV attempts to do a Christmas line-up in their own shitty, pathetic way. Usually a film followed by an hour of Emmerdale, an hour of Coronation Street and finishing off with either a special or a film. Commercial networks don’t really bother spending money on it as there is little advertising revenue on Xmas Day (except the DFS Boxing Day sales!).

There doesn’t seem to be any space left on BBC One this year! If I remember correctly the Green, Green Grass special is on at like 3pm!

Christmas is the one time I watch TV with my family! It’s a fantastic time of year for television.

I always find there’s always one classic TV shows ‘final’ episode every Christmas. I say final like that because Only Fools and Horses and Vicar of Dibley always seem to say “Actually we lied, we’ll be back” every time their ratings are released.
