PIGSKIN POWER: ADWEEK's Anthony Crupi examined how much shows on the fall TV schedule charge for 30-second ads, and reported Fox' roster of eight late-window national NFL games "fetches a jaw-dropping $595,000" per spot. NBC's "SNF" is second with a cost of "around $570,000 a throw," while the net's "Football Night In America" draws $135,780 per ad. The cost of ads on Fox' "The OT" and its Saturday primetime sports window, as well as ABC's Saturday night college football game, were not disclosed. CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" is the highest-charging non-sports program, as it "commands a staggering $326,260 per 30-second spot" (ADWEEK.com, 10/13).
