Al Manar Prime Time

Weight-loss drinks and diet pill commercials are the rage on Lebanese TV, particularly on Hezbollah-backed Al Manar. 

Following Sec. General Sayed Hassan Nasrallah’s speech tonight, back-to-back ads from “Life Care” filled what must be the most coveted 2 minute spot between the speech and the beginning of Al Manar evening news. 
I wonder how much these prime time Nasrallah slots go for, either during such regular speeches or his more infrequent hours-long interviews. The audience size is definitely marketable.
