Survivor China is the ninth-most expensive show on television
Survivor China is the ninth-most expensive show on television right now, tying ABC’s new Private Practice by charging $208,000 for a 30-second ad, Advertising Age reports. It’s also the only reality show in the top 10 right now, although American Idol will surely join it and top the list like it usually does.
As to ratings, Survivor China was the 14th most-popular show, according to Nielsen, as it had 14.1 million viewers. Dancing with the Stars’s three editions were the only reality shows in the top 10, and besides that, only Extreme Makeover: Home Edition beat Survivor (by 200,000 viewers). That makes Survivor one of the three most-popular reality shows right now, which is impressive, at least until Idol rolls around and stomps all over every other show’s ass.
