How much money did CBS lose on their own ads?

How much money did CBS lose promoting their own crap shows that everybody knows about? I would argue that they don't pick up any viewership based on their stupid ass super bowl promos. But yet, they took up paying spots with that crap.

Maybe they didn't have enough commercials to fill the spots. Still, if that were the case, I would still postulate that if they lowered the rates and took more commercials in, they'd make a ****load more money than the potential increased viewership of their cruddy shows that everybody knows about anyway.

So what say you? How much revenue would they gain by toning down their self-ads?

DaFace....This one is for you buddy.

I don't think they lost money on that. They're probably advertising their own product so that the biggest audience of the year by far is exposed to their products. If the shows they advertised get higher ratings, they will make up that lost revenue you mention and get way more on top of it over time.

They get the opportunity to pimp their shows in front of a bazillion people... they'd be crazy to waste that opportunity.

I'm pretty sure everyone on this forum knows what Coca-Cola is, yet they advertise during the Super Bowl every year. Same for Budweiser.

Can't vouch for yesterday but generally speaking there is usually a promo before they go back to whatever program.

Hey CBS can do whatever they want there were 115,000,000 people watching yesterday.

What better way to promote their programs and gain more viewers thereby increasing their advertising revenue?

He isn't saying before the game started. He is saying that the ads always happen right as they are coming back from break. Something anyone that has a DVR uses as the marker that the show is coming back. I really don't see why you think its bad for CBS to use the biggest stage in TV to market its shows.

Well I wasn't aware that statement about quality vs approval from Zach & I only applied to TV shows. You didn't specify.

I used to think all of CBS's shows sucked, too. Then I started watching NCIS reruns last year on USA, was able to see the series in its entirety from the start, and was surprised to discover it was actually a good show. Now I watch that and Vegas on Tuesday, and Person of Interest and Elementary on Thursday. Their comedies all suck balls though. Lowest common denominator laugh track garbage. Thank god Community is back Thursday so I have something funny to watch.
