How do networks such as MTV and FOX make profit if they don't charge people to watch their shows??

Shows like Wild N' Out and 24 cost money to film, but where do they get that money from?? Last time I checked, the TV doesn't ask me for any money when i turn it on.

    Well, MTV is a cable channel and you have to pay for cable.

    But the real answer is this, advertisement. Companies pay BIG BIG bucks to have their ads played on these channels. That is where all the money is coming from. During the Superbowl, many companies will dish out millions of dollars for airtime during this time. They make a killing just on that one day!

    Hope that helps ya
