    Fox has sold 70% of its ad inventory for its Super Bowl XXXVI broadcast, which it claims is "about even" with CBS' pace last year. With the tight marketplace, some advertisers are holding out for last minute bargains from Fox' rate of about $2M per 30-second spot, while others feel NBC's Winter Olympics are a better buy. Traditional advertisers like A-B are back on board, but there is a chance that no dot-coms will buy time this year. Meanwhile, U2 will add sizzle with a live performance during the game's halftime show.
