    Why do Americans

    have so many adverts on t.v? I was watching scrubs on ABC1 and the adverts came on after 4 minutes! We have 4 an hour and you guys have like 6. Why?

    Why?
    Because we (Americans) want to have the latest "cool" whatever! And how will we know what that is from our couch vantage point without COMMERCIALS?!?!?!

    Cuz many lazy and fat americans have phones right next to them so they can order whatever it is they want right from their seat... and we just like to spend money, so people take advantage of that.

    I suspect it is because we have less government control of television programming than you do in the U.K., e.g., none of our channels are government run.

    exactly. Since the TV programming isn't supported by government funding (with the exception of PBS), it is supported by advertising, hence more ads.
