A one minute commercial ad for Dark Shadows in February of 1967 was $3,600. Which was quite a bargain considering that the Bob Hope Special commanded $85,000 and Bonanza received $55,000 for the same segment of time. I'm guessing that drastically changed shortly thereafter with the arrival of Barnabas Collins in March of the same year.
