A Japanese English teacher is asking me about this, and I can't explain "why". Can anyone help me.

The american tv shows are in English, as are the philippine made shows.


why isn't it :

the american tv shows are in english, as the philippine made shows are.

I said, because that's how it is, he isn't satisfied.

I think the second sounds stange, we never put the are at the end. the "as are" should be together.
