In 1952, when most TV was live, production space was a premium. A  
May, 1952 "Architectural Forum" article about the construction of CBS  
Television City has this gem:

One TV executive explained: "The reason you see so much murder on TV  
is that murder is all we have studio space for. All you need is a  
victim and a murderer, maybe a rope and a dark corner. Give us room  
and maybe we'll be able to afford something else."
