How much do network TV shows pay for music?

    I am thinking about releasing some royalty free music similar to what FreshMusic.com does. I would sell perhaps 10 songs on CD for $50.00 (or something like that) for use in 1 production, provided that the music is not used for a show on MTV, Discovery Channel, History Channel, or other show that is not indie. But how much do these shows pay for music?

    I know that the vast majority of indie movie productions have a tiny budget and they never make money. So I want to be accessible to them, but I don't want to sell myself short to big budget shows.
