Fox this morning became the first network to wrap its upfront sales. “Fox has concluded our primetime upfront sales at volume and pricing levels consistent with our position as the number one network,” the network said in a statement. Fox’ upfront haul is said to be about $1.8-1.9 billion, up close to 15% from last year, at 8.5-9% CPM increases. Given the solid demand, Fox held back less inventory, selling about 80% of its ad time for next season, up more than 10% from last year.
