Mid-Season Finales, A Good Thing or Bad Thing?

A lot of shows, like Supernatural and the Walking Dead, have been taking a break over the holiday seasons. Some breaks last a few weeks, while some shows go on a 2 month hiatus. In some respects, I think itís a great idea since shows can build up suspense for two separate events in a single season, however, it comes at a cost of viewers getting fewer shows each year. What do you prefer?

I think this is a bit of a ripoff as I typically watch a series all at once rather than watching while it's being aired on TV. I also hate the obligatory "Christmas" episode, especially when I end up watching it in mid July :)
I don't mind one way or the other to be honest. I have found that with American sows, the first episode gets aired in the US a month or two before the UK, but then in December the US has a about a 2 month break, and the UK stops for about two weeks and carries on. This gives us a chance to catch up with the US and means we don't have to wait as long to find out what happens at the cliff hanger.
It's a useful lesson in delaying gratification....
Not really noticed - I assume the season finishes at Christmas time, to be honest....(Australian Christmas time), we get Xmas shows in June/July.Sometimes March.
This is a bit of give and take and I'm not sure which I prefer. I like the writing style change away from the normal formula of 20 to 23 episodes with a build up to one large season finally, but I also feel a little ripped off when when suddenly a season is cut to 14 or 16 episodes. I understand the break, but if the break is too long, it's just not worth it.
