    Probably because when movies are made, they talk about how much a movie costs to be made, not the number of people it took to make it. And, they want to know if the movie made more money than it cost to make it. The bottom line is always money. TV shows and movies, on the other hand, are judged by the number of viewers, which helps sell advertisement.
