In bad economic times, NBC has something to be happy about with Super Bowl XLIII

Folks are losing their jobs left and right, but at least NBC has something to be happy about in this crappy economy. Bloomberg reports that since NBC-TV,sold all its advertising spots at a record $206 million. Apparently they also set a record for pregame ad revenue as well for the NFL from pre- and post-game with $261 million. And that's with the in company GE and Hulu ads, which rumor says that "when NBC agreed to create Hulu with News Corp, it gave the site $50 million worth of advertising time whenever it wanted to use it. Sunday's Super Bowl ad will be the first time Hulu taps that $50 million". Thirty-two different advertisers will be air spots in the 69 slated in-game ad spots.
