  • 20-25 based on the schedule and the days it falls on. In a calendar year you have 52 weeks. Most New TV seasons start in the fall August/September and run through until April/May. An additional insight it takes 100 shows to make it to syndication, although they might be flexible in this standard practice as well, especially with all the competition for programing these days
  • In the US and Canada there were typically 26 shows produced per season. One show for every week of the year: one original broadcast and one repeat in the second half of the season. Because of production costs, this has fallen to something closer to 20 to 22 shows over the past couple of decades. The average length of the show has also decreased from somewhere around 25 or 26 minutes per half hour of air time to about 22 minutes. In the UK, a typical season may only consist of six or eight episodes. Their approach to production is quite a bit different than in the US market. Shows are typically written by only one or two writers, rather than a team, often with only one director and one producer. Shows on the BBC usually run for about 30 minutes, since there are no commercials. Shows on the commercial networks are also longer than the US norm. A subsequent season may be produced if the show has a high enough viewership and the writers want to pursue the series. Think of the productions as more of a craft product from an individual rather than a product from a large-scale assembly line.
  • In the earlier days of television, and continuing for many years thereafter, a standard season had 39 episodes. Thirteen episodes were rerun during the summer (for most filmed shows).
