It depends on the type of show or movie; and don’t forget that there are different phases of making the TV show or film. Pre-production, where the script is written, the roles are cast, and the sets are built; production, when the actual footage is shot; and post-production, when the film or show is edited down to a final product.
For a TV show, you have to keep in mind that at any given time, they’re working on multiple episodes–e.g. on a given day a few are in the process of being written, one is being shot, and one or two are being edited.
For a typical network sitcom like “How I Met Your Mother,” the script takes a few weeks to write. The actors get their scripts on Monday (guest stars are cast a week or two beforehand); they do a “table read” where all the actors read their lines to see how the show flows, what jokes work, and what parts of the script may need tweaking. Rehearsals continue on Tuesday, and the show films on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (shows that have a studio audience, like “Two and a Half Men,” film on Thursday or Friday, doing the exact same show twice so that in the editing process, they can choose the better version of each scene from the two takes).
Then the show is edited, a process that usually takes a week or two. Then the show is ready for air–but of course when it actually gets aired depends on the network’s schedule; sometimes it’s as early as a few days after it’s done editing, sometimes it’s a few weeks.
So basically, on a sitcom, they shoot a new episode every week, but pre-production and post-production take additional time. A show like HIMYM shoots from August to March, taking sizable breaks for holidays.
Hourlong dramas usually take 7 to 10 working days to rehearse and shoot, but essentially the process is the same.
With movies, again there’s a wide range of projects, differing in scope, budget, and genre, and each take different lengths of time. A low-budget film that’s mostly drama and has very little in the way of special effects can take just a couple of weeks to shoot and several weeks to edit, while a big-budget special effects movie like Avatar or The Dark Knight Rises could take years from shooting to release (the new Superman movie was done filming months ago, but won’t be in theaters until Summer 2013).
And when it comes to movies that aren’t surefire blockbuster hits, even when they’re complete the studio can take its time to release the movie at an appropriate time, taking into consideration the time of year (e.g., horror movies around Halloween time, holiday movies around Christmas, romantic movies around Valentine’s day; big-budget blockbusters around the holidays and early summer) as well as possible competition (you don’t necessarily want to release your movie on the same weekend that a big movie that everyone wants to see is coming out).

Question by jackieblue: Why does it take some movies forever to be released on DVD?
I pre-ordered a movie back in October because at first it said it would be released on DVD on November 4th. Then they changed it to December 30th, and then again on January 20th. Why can’t the studios make up their minds on when they will release the movies on DVD at a certain date?
Answer by Jeffy.
January the 20th is not forever. DVD releases are not as important as the films theatrical premier. Sometimes DVD’s get delayed. It’s not the end of the world.

Unable to come to terms with Jessica Biel over how much it’s really worth to get Jessica Biel in a movie, Fox has quickly moved on to finding someone cheaper to look good in The Wolverine.
Their choice? Svetlana Khodchenkova, a Russian actress who most will likely only remember from Tomas Alfredson’s tight spy thriller, Tinker Tailor Gary Oldman. According to Twitch, she’s moving quickly toward a deal to play Viper, the same character Biel was to play–a villain with a complex, at-times romantic relationship with Wolverine, who she once blackmailed into marriage. In other words: this could finally be the Wolverine movie where Hugh Jackman comically gulps at the camera.

In preparation for it’s theatrical premiere in June, a new trailer has been released for Sarah Polley’s film, “Take This Waltz”.
The drama, which stars Seth Rogen and Michelle Williams, focuses on the relationship between 28 year-old Margot (Williams) and her happy marriage with cookbook author, Lou (Rogen) – that is, until Margot meets her neighbor Daniel (Luke Kirby) and they begin to have an undeniable mutual attraction to one another.
Per IMDB, the movie is “a funny, bittersweet and heart-wrenching story about a woman struggling to choose between two different types of love.”
The motion picture originally premiered last fall at the Toronto International Film Festival, and also stars Sarah Silverman and Luke Kirby.
The movie will reportedly make its way into theaters June 29, but you check out the new trailer below!
