Current is averaging about 42,000 viewers on a typical night.



That translates into almost ZERO advertising rates. More viewers watch C-SPAN than that.

I'm not sure they even have advertising, when I have watched the only thing I recall seeing are pledge drives and the selling of DVD's of their programs, t-shirts, and other stuff

I think it operates more like a local public TV station.

I'd assume the only real value the network has is its access to some viewers on cable and satellite providers.

eta, on further reflection I am certain that is the case as they make a big deal out of receiving no corporation funding/advertising and claim that they are the people's network free of all bias except thier own.
