From personal experience I have seen the trend of Cable's On Demand not allowing the fast forward option to operate during viewings so I have to painfully sit there to watch the advertisements. Every opportunity to fast forward a previously recorded show is taken in my household.

T.V is where the advertising dollars are spent most. TV advertising sector will pass the $200b revenue mark in the next five years yet drop from a flourishing 73% to just fewer than 70% attributable to free-to-air terrestrial channels (Global Entertainment & Media Marketing Leader). There are certain events on TV that will be viewed by so many, that the commercials played are a big deal. That is another reason why I don't think it has lost its advertising power, obviously it is still working with the amount of money businesses are willing to pay to get air time.
