How much would you pay for American Idol?

I am back from Chicago and a long weekend of interviewing for my department's positions. However, I caught up with all of the people I wanted to (save two), which is always fun.

As I plug back into the world (it is sometimes considerably easier to be unplugged), I come across this AdAge Daily report considering American Idol:
Are you ready for "Idol" chocolate bars, "Idol" ice cream and "Idol" Monopoly games? What about an "Idol" theme-park attraction and a "Sims"-style virtual "Idol" that will give contestants makeovers before letting them stroll down a red carpet in front of the paparazzi and sing?
The first four episodes are always fun/painful and the winner is, by definition, very likely to sell a lot of records. A great concept that is worth a couple of billion (and likely more)...
