broadcaster NBC Universal.

Last year’s Super Bowl had record viewership and brought in $228 million in advertising for Fox.

“It’s likely this year’s audience will be of a comparable size, adding to the cumulative $1.72 billion that advertisers have spent on Super Bowls over the past 10 years,” according to report on MarketWatch.

Many advertisers are being tight with their money these days, but the Super Bowl continues to attract big money.

MarketWatch offers an interesting look at which companies have spent the most on Super Bowl spots and why. NBC is bringing in an average of $3.5 million for a 30-second ad on the Feb. 5 broadcast.
