I miss the days when 22 out of 52 weeks was expected, doable and successful, with no major hiatuses.........even for the highest quality shows. If you go farther back in time, wasn't the norm once 38 or 39 out of 52?

God bless GAME OF THRONES and OZ, but their normal yearly output is or was ten or eight per year.
Game of Thrones also has way more location shooting and effects work and serialization in storytelling than those shots that shot 38-39 episodes per year. They can't just buy a bunch of scripts from freelancers, shove the actors in a soundstage, shoot, and be done with it like in the old days.
