PREVIEW: Super Bowl XLVI 2012 TV commercials build super buzz online
By: Gayle Falkenthal
"For those of you who like to stay ahead of the game, my link this week is a preview of what to expect from the commercials on Super Bowl Sunday. The going rate for 30 seconds of commercial time this year is about $3.5 million ($4.5 million if you want premium placement). That seems like a lot of money to be spending on 30 seconds of air space, but when you consider the fact that over 150 million people in America will be watching, it really isn’t that absurd. From the previews, it looks like car commercials are going to dominate this year. "
