The average cost for a primetime spot declined by 0.7 percent to $132.970 in the 2006-07 season from the previous year, according to figures from NetCosts, which uses real media buying data from national advertisers that spend a combined $12 billion per year.
According to the NetCosts data, NBC, which suffered a steep ratings drop during the season, also saw its ad prices slide 16.2 percent. Fox, which won the ratings race among adults 18 to 49, saw its ad units jump in prices by 25.8 percent. ABC’s spots rose 3.8 percent, while CBS’s spots were down 3.7 percent.

  1. Awesome site…

  2. I would like to start my own blog one day. This was a really nice blog that you made here. Keep up the success 😛

  3. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  4. Hey I like the post , good information, Can we fix the RSS feeder. . .? or is it my browser. I certainly appreciate the new stuff.
