Kacie McDonnell Steps Out, Samantha Busch Reels In A Monster Tuna & Johnny Football Taking Ass Shots

Here’s a story people love every year

How much is a 30-second Super Bowl ad this year? I don’t know what it is, but people LOVE to talk about how expensive SB ad slots are. Last year, I think it was somewhere in the $4 million range for 30 seconds. This year, if you can believe it, the price went up yet again:

NY Post:

Dan Lovinger, executive VP of ad sales for NBC Sports Group, said the record proceeds would be driven by the $5 million price tag for a 30-second ad β€” and strong ad demand for lead-out program β€œThis Is Us.”

The day’s take is expected to be around $500 million, Lovinger said during a conference call on Thursday.

Yep, that will be a record for ad sales in one day. And next year, I’m guessing that record will get broken again.

Numbers from:

Here's the math on the net payout for the 20-year-old winner of the Mega Millions.

Original Prize: $451,000,000

Approximate Taxes:
$104,000,000

$177,874,999
