  1. How much will it cost to make a commercial after Extremem Makeover: Home Edition show between the time of 1:00pm – 5:00pm on ABC?

  2. Well all the talking about commercials being 100,000 dollars and more is all fake, only if you hire a production crew working on a monthly consuming time commercial.

    One 30 Second commercial will be between 18-60 dollars for one commercial, if you want to show a commercial all day long you will want to show the commercial about 10 times, making it between 200-500 dollars. its cheaper then you think.
