Out of interest I generated 50,000 3x3 scrambles using TNoodle. The average scramble length was 19.33 moves. There were 3 scrambles of 14 moves, 34 of 15 moves, 216 of 16 moves, 1244 of 17 moves, 6250 of 18 moves, 19,199 of 19 moves, 20,038 of 20 moves, and 3016 of 21 moves.

Here are the most common moves from highest to lowest:


MoveCount
R275,996
L275,158
F274,670
B273,506
U273,048
D270,093
U'46,363
U46,145
F'44,343
D'44,336
D44,135
F43,767
R'43,280
R42,912
B'42,711
B42,565
L'41,350
L41,345

I did the same for the 2x2 and all the scrambles were 11 moves. Here are the most common moves:
MoveCount
U'101,695
R'79,586
R77,804
U275,246
F67,736
R253,380

I wasn't really surprised with the 3x3 results (except that there were more F's than D/D's), but the 2x2 results seem really weird. Is there any explanation for this?
The 3x3 ones make sense to me. It's just the way the scramble program solves the cube.
