Yea, Network TV in the US does pump out more episodes per year, then British TV (Though US Cable, many shows are only 10-13 episodes per year).

I wonder if that's dow to the budget? Is it maybe because a bigger US budget allows for a larger crew, and so things can be done quicker, because there are more people to do them?
In the UK we traditionally produce shorter seasons and don't have the large writing teams common in the U.S. - we can do more though. We have a couple of primetime medical dramas that run all year round, 50 plus one hour episodes.
