How long does it typically take to film a season of a television show?

Question by Sparkle: How long does it typically take to film a season of a television show?
I know that not every show is the same and it takes different amounts of times to film different shows. But on average how long would it typically take to film a, lets say, a season of about 22, 1-hour episodes? LIke how long would it take to film each episode, generally, and how long in between filming each episode. How long would there be of rehearsals, etc. And of course how long would the overall process (just the filming, not the editing) take? Thank you in advance =)

An typical episode is filmed in about a week because they use two or more units to film scenes at the same time. So typically a show consisting about 22 episodes films half by the fall holidays. They take time off to celebrate the holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas) and then return to film the second half.
