The Gains add where everyone is sniffing everyone's clothes don't ask me why? I wonder sometimes about myself too.

and then there is that ad for Sprint where the guy and girl meet while on vacation, she is heading home, he is still going to be traveling in Europe and he sends her photos of himself in front of landmarks, until she is at home by the lake and he sends her his latest photo and it is him standing close by.....I think the song has lyrics about falling in love. I tried to find on YouTube right now, and the only commerical up for sprint is that weird one where the girls are talking about falling in love with their phone as if it was a man and the movie phone guy is narrating.

I love the Geico ones, especially the one where the Pillsbury Doughboy has to go through airport security.

I made this banner of Mads Mikkelsen in the latest Carlsberg advert.

Current Tv Commercial

Does anyone pay attention to the TV commercial. Seen on I think from Cox Communications. A hand or finger with a face on it. Kids liked it. And anyone identify that one for me.

The number of commercial breaks in one episode

Hi.
As someone fascinated by television writing, I often pay attention to how many commercial breaks (and how many acts) an episode has.
The big networks used to have 4 breaks in one episode (usually a teaser followed by 4 acts), but they started to switch to 5 breaks around 2004, and it is now the norm for network and basic cable shows. I find it interesting because it had a significant impact on the writing (more scenes or more mini cliffhangers, and a faster pace). To my knowledge, a very small number of channels still has 4 breaks (CBS, AMC, FX... correct me if I'm mistaken).

My question is: is there a list of somewhere that indicates how many commercial breaks there are (by tv shows or by channels)? And where can I see the evolution over the years?
I did find a few shooting scripts of some shows, where you can see how many acts they have, but I'd love to have a real overview.

Thank you.
