    Golly, that  average U.S. media CPM of $73.14, seems a tad on the high side. Assuming that the CPM is an audience- weighted average of all ad units and platforms, it is way above the comparable stat for TV. We did an analysis recently for a 50/50 mix of "15s" and "30s" for all forms  of TV---linear and streaming--- for all "viewers" aged 2+  and all dayparts and came up with a CPM of about $17. If our estimate is correct---and we think that it's close to the mark---then radio, primt media, OOH and digital video/display ad sellers are really raking in huge CPMs---like well over $100 and maybe as much as $200. Or, perhaps, some clarification by WARC is needed.
