OSCARS STILL CAN'T TOP THE SUPER BOWL: The Oscars last night are the second most expensive regularly scheduled event on network TV after the Super Bowl, which at $1.1M per :30, is "still tops." The Super Bowl delivers "more viewers and is a much more efficient buy in reaching people," and Nielsen estimates for the '94 Super Bowl and Oscars telecasts reveal that the $21.96 cost to "reach every thousand TV households via the Oscars telecast is about a $1 per thousand more expensive than the Super Bowl's CPM of $20.99." The Oscars reach female viewers better, but in order to reach men 18-49, the CPM for the Oscars is more than twice that of past Super Bowls: $74.56/minute vs. $33.88 (Mandeses & Wallenstein, AD AGE, 3/27).
