What's up with so many shows putting out tiny little min-seasons of 10 episodes? We used to call 10 hours of TV a mini-series - not a season! It's not just the shows coming from little networks that don't have the money to make a standard length season - even some of the fairly good sized networks are doing it. It doesn't affect me much because there's only one current show that I follow - Yellowstone - although they do it too and they're on Paramount. With that name you'd they they've got some decent money behind them to where they could out together full length seasons. So is the problem work ethic? Are people just getting too lazy to put together a full season? Running a series from fall to spring can't be that hard - just look at how many shows have done it. They all used to do it until recently. I hope the trend goes away because it's really not enjoyable to wait 9 or 10 months of a new season. I bet a lot of the viewers of these new shows don't even remember what was going on in the show after that much time goes by in between seasons. Maybe it's the small audiences these shows have. How may of these shows with the min-seasons these days get a Nielsen rating of 20? or even 10? Still, even though it may be a niche audience, if a show is doing better than breaking even, if it earns X amount of money per episode, then they'd earn twice as much with 20 episodes instead of 10. It's like any other product someone sells for a profit - it's desirable to sell more of them rather than less.
