Hello

1) Could anyone explain to me when are the "seasons" in US?

2) And when do you have holidays? Like in school

3) Why the TV show "Suits" gets like a pause for several months and then continues but on the same season?

I'm confused over here obviously...

Thanks!
Have a nice day

Independence Day - July 4
Labor Day - September 5
Columbus Day - October 10
Veterans Day - November 11

Christmas - December 25

Suits - never heard of it. But ... I've noticed several TV shows breaking up the season into 2 parts, like The Walking Dead. The first half shown in the fall and the 2nd half shown sometime after the new year. I guess it's becoming more popular.

If you're talking about television, in the US, shows are divided up into seasons. The season starts in September and runs until June. In June, the shows would go into "rerun," where they'd run best episodes from the previous season until September when, if they were lucky, they'd be renewed and start a new season of shows.

It used to be that the show would get a 13 week contract and if the ratings were good, they'd get extended another 26 weeks. These days, it's usually 13 weeks and then another 13 weeks. You have to be really good to get a full year's run.

In the 60's, they toyed with the concept of a "summer show," a short series that would fill the gap if the networks didn't think the show would carry over into reruns. Dean Martin was good for these, when his show stopped for the summer, he produced "Dean Martin Present The Gold Diggers," a musical comedy show that featured a group of leggy dancers. This went one for three years, one year set in the 20's the second year set in the 30's and then the third year they went to London. I also believe the very odd spy/science fiction series "The Prisoner" was a summer series.

Seasons can refer to different things, seasons of the year, weather, season on television (pilot season, new show season February, September, etc., and in entertainment we have season in performance markets. We have a vacation season, typically Memorial Day - Labor Day (see above), we have booking seasons for performance markets like schools, trade shows, holiday parties, wedding season, comedy seasons, Prom season, scouting event season, fair and festival season, etc. And booking season is different than performance seasons. So it really depends on your specific area and type of seasons you speak of. When most mention season, it weather or time of the year-related.

Summer series and summer replacement series still exist and do quite well, such as America's Got Talent, Bachelor In Paradise, etc. that have actually evolved into more of a permanent (returning) summer series time slot. Some so popular, they are two consecutive nights each week.

I loved Des O'Conner's summer show. I thought his accent was so cool.
