What are television seasons?
Unlike the irregular television timetable in India the US has a defined season structure. Series premiere in either September or December/ January with a pilot. If it gets decent ratings a series continues its season till May when season finales air. A break is taken in summer when the hoiday season is. If renewed for the next year a series begins its second season in September / October again.
The season system also has what are called sweeps periods (in February, November). These are times when the ratings determine the advertising rates for a particular series/ network so networks go all out to attract viewers including getting guest stars and airing their best episodes.
The US has a network system...what in India could be called all India channels. The main networks in the US are NBC (the peacock network), ABC, CBS and Fox (which airs the X Files). Other networks are Warner Bros and UPN.
