Why is the very first episode of a show always called a pilot?
What Girls Said 2
usually it because it's a test run, shown to a certain group of audience to see if it will be liked, and therefore worth producing.
Its the pilot the being of the show... its the direction of where its heading...

So we can know how, well, where the show is heading plot wise, maybe?
Because the first episode is the pilot. The amount of viewers during the pilot of a tv series indicates how much faith the producers and the other people who invested money into the show should have. And it mostly indicates if the show will fail or not.
A pilot episode is essentially a way of testing the waters before a full series is made. Usually if the pilot episode is a success then it will lead to a series. If not the series is binned and no further episodes are made.
Just the industry standard, the broadcaster will decide to purchase a season based on the pilot
Because it's ready for take off
Because as an adjective pilot means something done as an experiment. So the first episode is a pilot episode. And now it's also used as a noun
Because it my fly in the ratings... or come crashing down in the ratings...
