    Where do Game shows get all that money from?

    There are a lot of TV Game shows that pay out substantial sums of money to contestants every week. Where on earth does the money come from?

    Advertising - that's the name of the game!

    The advertisers pay a big chunk of change to have their ads placed on the game show and the game show turns around and pays the contestants a part of that money plus a profit for themselves - of course!

    Here in the U.K. the t.v. companies ask people to phone in which act they think is best-for instance Susan Boyle on the puke inducing X-factor.These are known as premium rate lines-or were going to screw you for lots of cash lines.There is also the trash they advertise-hope I answered your question.

    I am certain that they get their money from Sponsors and such. The Sponsors pay the game show x-amount of money for a commercial spot during their show etc...
