  Television program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A television series that is intended to air a finite number of episodes is usually called a miniseries.

Common TV program periods include regular broadcasts (like TV news), TV series (usually seasonal and ongoing with a duration of only a few episodes to many seasons), or TV miniseries which is an extended film, usually with a small pre-determined number of episodes and a set plot and timeline.
