CNN still charging a ton of money for an ad during debate

Even though the network expects “significantly smaller” ratings for tonight’s Democratic debate, CNN is still charging around $100,000 for an ad slot, according to an executive Variety spoke with. A normal primetime ad on CNN would go for about $4,000-$6,000.

For the GOP debate, CNN sold ad slots for a reported $150,000 to $200,000, mainly cashing in on the Donald Trump effect.

But, even without Trump, and even with the expectation for significantly lower ratings, CNN is still charging a lot of money for an ad slot.
