Whether you watch them on TV or stream them online, there’s something uniquely satisfying about watching your favorite TV shows and becoming completely engrossed in their fictional worlds. But what really makes a show good or bad? How can you know if you’ll enjoy it based on its rating or the premise alone? This guide will explain how to analyze and classify your favorite TV shows, giving you the tools to know what type of show it is and whether or not you’ll like it before even tuning in!

What is a TV show?

TV shows are typically film in front of a live audience with a studio audience comprising an integral part of many productions. Most US commercial television series have 22-26 episodes per season (half-hour shows typically being 22 or 24, while hour-long Reel Craze shows usually have 26). This is generally broke down into three 8 episode arcs. Some shows run for only one season, but those that are successful are often continued by their networks. Conversely, networks will cull series after their initial season if it appears unpopular. 

All new television series are announce via press releases from their respective network; there is usually no other way to find out about upcoming programs until they air except through internet hype sites such as Wikipedia or IMDb, both of which can be inaccurate. Most new U.S. series debut in September or October, though some start earlier or later depending on production schedules. For example, ABC’s Lost debuted on September 22nd, 2004, and aired its last episode on May 23rd, 2010 – almost six years later! 

The most common day for new shows to premiere is Thursday, followed by Monday and Tuesday. Very few new scripted series debut on Sunday nights anymore due to increased competition from sports broadcasts.

Different types of TV shows

One of the first things you’ll want to know when analyzing your favorite TV shows is

what type of show it is. There are many different genres out there, and while they may all be entertaining,

they often have their own set of criteria that make them unique. Listed below are some types of TV shows: 

Soap Opera: These programs use a continuing storyline for dramatic effect in multiple episodes per week. Due to their highly serialized nature, these programs can last for several years with over a thousand episodes produced over a run. 

Sitcoms: Sitcoms (short for situation comedies) focus on sitcom families like The Simpsons or The Big Bang Theory. Some of these shows feature laugh tracks, but most do not. 

Episodic Comedy: This genre focuses on standalone comedy scenes rather than a continuous storyline.  Most episodic comedy series do not have laugh tracks, but those that do tend to be more family-friendly. 

Drama Series: This genre focuses on dramatic storylines which usually involve crime and/or medical emergencies. Because of their high production costs, dramas tend to air fewer episodes per season than other genres;  however, they often air at least twice as many seasons as other types of series due to their popularity among viewers. 

Reality Television: This genre involves real people being film without scripts

or pre-determine outcomes in situations such as Survivor or The Amazing Race.
