I was watching an animated movie on TV one night (close to midnight), and when it finished a commercial break, but before it returned to the movie, it would air a parental advisory. So we know it's definitely not for children, but the commercials are obviously meant for children (advertisements for toys, etc.).
Can anyone provide insight into why a network would run commercials meant for children late at night during what is supposed to be a mature rated movie?
My assumption is that when a company buys commercial space, the network promises to run the commercial a set number of times, so the network just sets it up in a loop.
