Cbs Charging Less For Some Super Bowl Commercials

01.12.10 | FL News Team

Super Bowl ads are still selling like hot cakes, but the price has dropped from last year's record levels. The New York "Daily News" reports the cost for a 30-second spot during the February 7th game reached a record three-million-dollars last year, making it the most expensive advertising on television. But this year, according to TNS Media Intelligence, CBS has sold all except four 30-second slots for between two-point-five and two-point-eight-million-dollars each.

 About 30 companies will run ads during Super Bowl 44, but no car companies will be part of the action. In addition, for the first time in 23 years, Pepsi won't have a Super Bowl commercial. The game's 2009 broadcast on NBC included a record 45 minutes and five seconds of ads, a stat that has gone up steadily almost every year since 2000.
