I had originally hoped product placement would replace the ~20 minutes of commercial breaks during an hour of network TV. But after a lengthly debate with a friend, I've come to realize that product placement is like a new tax; however unpalatable it may be, once they get the public to accept it and start seeing the additional money roll in, it's there for good.
