The Super Bowl is two and a half weeks away, but we already know who big winner will be – 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.
Bailing out banks is proving to be a money-maker for U.S. taxpayers. Whether or not you agree with the politics of the bailout, there’s no denying the Troubled Asset Relief Program has paid off for the U.S. Treasury.
Most of the money has been repaid, although a handful of banks have yet to pay us back for keeping them alive.
“Of the $205 billion the Treasury doled out to 707 banks, $137 billion has been repaid. From the 61 banks that have fully repaid, the Treasury has earned a tidy $13 billion profit,” Forbes.com reports.
