    In this country, it starts in late November and doesn't end until mid-February. It's when the networks dig out the stuff that flopped and run it in prime time, and all the beginner presenters get their chance in front of a camera. Those of us without decent internet streaming options can either drag out all the stuff we recorded off-air during the year, or forget TV altogether and find other things to do, which is not so difficult in summer.

    I watch almost no TV 'live' when the programmes are broadcast. Nearly everything I watch is stuff I've downloaded. I have pretty much complete control over what I see. I might watch episode 1 of something lame from time to time. I have thus eradicated such phenomena as the "TV silly season" from my life.

    Same here I use Sky+ extensively to create my own channel.

    My wife watches lots of "as its broadcast" stuff, such as bake-offs, model-offs, dance-offs, jungle-offs, pottery-offs and a variety of other toe-curling pap which I tolerate because she is awesome.
