I've been a bit confused about what is the standard number of episodes a
series has per season.  Babylon 5 had 22.  I believe Star Trek: The Next
Generation had 26.  Other shows have 20 or 24.  Is there any set standard to
decide what constitutes a season?  With the discrepancy between Star Trek
and B5, it doesn't sound like syndication or genre plays a factor.  My guess
is it has to do with how much money the studio is willing to shell out each

Any help in understanding this would be appreciated.
