How many "live" episodes do they do per year?

Six? eight? seems like they do far less live shows per season now...and they rerun shows they just had on a month ago...what crap, Comedy Central's recent marathon of older episodes really exposes how shitty the writing has become for that show...a real disappointment. I wish they'd get away from satirizing pop culture tv shows so much and get back to more absurdist sketches...
