I don't know if you are onto something or not but wasn't there subliminals in a Australian music awards show a year or two ago? I vaguely remember KFC and McDonalds ads thrown in there, something like that.
Why Oz and not here? Or are they too slick here to get noticed? I haven't seen anything like this from America but that doesn't mean it isn't happening.

I dont want to be rude or anything friend, but this has been going on for years. Simply put its poor editing on the TV stations behalf, since they have launched all the digital services (at government pressure so they can release the analogue band licenses to other carriers), there has been additional stations (7Two, Gem, Go etc and so forth), however the TV stations have not put on additional staff (in the numbers required). This means multiple problems are occurring.
The main problem you are witnessing is for repeats of shows (the full 60 minute production including ads), what they do is cut the live feed to an "ad robot" (Term used loosely), which overlays the new ads. This saves them money by not having to employ further editing staff to edit out the old ads, and replace them with a black pause (which you see in the "newer" shows).
This show you have recorded (bone collector) is a repeat, what you are actually seeing (in the first video) is the former intro to what is called "Brand power" (i cant recall the name right now).
The second one i didnt quite get, however it just looks like an old ad.
Definitely no conspiracy here, just bad video editing, and short staffing
