Cbs Sells All Super Bowl Advertising Slots

02.01.10 | FL News Team

CBS has sold out every advertising slot for Sunday's Super Bowl.  The network drew sharp criticism in recent weeks for approving a Christian anti-abortion ad while barring an ad featuring a dating website for homosexual men.  A 30-second spot runs for about three-million dollars.

The Super Bowl is the largest advertising event of the year and draws in an average of 95-million viewers.  A recent Nielsen study shows more Americans enjoy the ads over the actually football game.  Last year's advertising revenue earned NBC a record 206-million despite the recession, which kept General Motors and FedEx from running ads.
