How long should a 30 minute television script be?

I am writing a script for a television pilot and I’m having a hard time getting a concept of its length. I looked at scripts from shows like Seinfeld and Friends, but those scripts range anywhere from 13 pages to 25 (when copied and pasted into Final Draft).

Does anyone have any experience with this topic that can give me a better idea about how long a script should be?
