Advertisers are willing to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for ad spots during our favorite shows such as "The Walking Dead," "The Big Bang Theory" and more. Because of their immense popularity and primetime spot (which is usually 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sometimes on Sundays, primetime starts at 7 p.m.), ad spots can cost big bucks.
