NBC of the US whose prime time rating has been pretty disappointing in recent years {has raked in tons of dollars} by covering Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.

Can you suggest another idiom expressing the same idea as that shown in the curly brackets?

@fansy,
Before I did that, I would correct the faulty grammar by inserting a definite article ("the") before the word Beiing, and the punctuation by inserting commas after "US" and "years".

@fansy,
NBC of the US, whose prime time rating has been pretty disappointing in recent years,

{has cashed in heavily}
{has made a pretty penny}
{has made a bundle}
{has made a killing}
{has hit pay dirt}
{has struck it rich}
{brough home the bacon}

by covering the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.

These are just a few examples. You can find more by searching for money idioms with a search engine.
