How was HBO's "In Treatment" filmed/produced?

I am very much enjoying HBO's In Treatment. I was amazed by the number of episodes in each season and then learned it was originally broadcast daily on week nights. How was this managed in terms of filming, cast availability etc.? Was it filmed entirely ahead of broadcast, as I understand HBO series tend to be? it seems unmanageable and risky otherwise.

There's more TV options than channels...

All I want is a TV... why are there so many choices? I'm moving to a studio in a week (YAY!) and don't own a TV.
