Hefty Price Tag Attached To Ad Time During Oprah Winfrey Show Finale

| Filed under: Oprah WinfreyBusiness Blitz


It's not the highest we've every heard (Friends demanded twice as much), but its certainly asking a lot, especially considering this is daytime TV.

If you are looking to run a 30-second spot during the finale of The Oprah Winfrey Show, you better have $1 million. That's how much the network is asking for ad time during the hour and supposedly, that number shoots up depending on the ad's placement within the show.

In theory, it sounds like it would be worth it, with millions the housewives and longtime fans bound to tune in to see Oprah say farewell. However, considering that Seinfeld asked for a comparable amount ($1.42 million) when it signed off in 1998 and it was watch by 76.3 million people in primetime, it might be reaching.

But with May 25th rapidly approaching, advertisers better make up their minds quick and decide it is worth it to them before there is no space left to pay too much for!

    what a waste of dollar$!..the usual big corporations will foot the bill..why more Coca Cola ads. when it is a staple drink..are ppl going to consume just bcoz i was reminded during Oprah's commercial break?..Oprah should use her own pockets as a buffer since she's holier than thou

    I'm surprised she hasn't bought them all to advertise her OWN network.

    I'm just glad that she is done. Maybe we won't hear to much from her after that. Hope so.
