American TV and endless advertising

Just how much does advertising infringe on television in the states? Well, check this shit out (from the new google video search thang):

0 seconds - promo for new series of family guy

30 seconds - the credits for the simpsons

1 minute - end of credits, cut to... a ford advert!

then some more adverts, then another, and so on and so forth. No wonder America is so fucked up. I'm amazed they even remember to bathe themselves with all that marketing crap floating around their heads.
