Whatever the commercial meant, its scary to think if it was actually true. Not that people's brains turn to mush, but that someone or some group of intelligent people, human or not, could brainwash or cognitively affect humanity. The stupid average American already watches too much TV, instead of trying to find the cure for cancer or doing something productive. People who watch TV on a regular basis miss out on actual human interaction and life in general. They live sad lives of quiet desperation and false human contact until sh*t hits the fan.

As much as I love the conspiracy angle of this subject, the rational side of me thinks that it has a lot more to do with advertising dollars than it has to do with mind control.
In all reality, it could probably argued that it is a combination of the two. In the end though, I think it still comes down to the (formerly)all mighty dollar.
