|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|
In television, an episode is a single event of a series. The time varies depending on the nature of the series, but most are between fifteen and fifty minutes long (excluding commercial breaks). Episodes can be both self-contained (a completed story from beginning to end) or serial (a continuation of a previous or future story). There is some confusion when programs run episodes for an unusual length of time; for example by airing a two-hour episode of a show that is normally only one hour. Some people consider this to be two separate (though linked) episodes while others consider it to be a single episode.
