SOLD OUT! CBS Sells Last Super Bowl Ad
CBS said the final spot sold Monday morning, six days before kickoff.
That’s a few days ahead of schedule. Last year, NBC still had two 30-second spots remaining two days before the game as the economy was mired in a recession, and announced only on the eve of the game that it sold out a total 69 spots.
CBS said last month it was selling 62 spots, but that grew over time and the final number of spots is “very close” to what NBC sold last year, said spokesman Dana McClintock. The network provided no further details on prices.
