RBR-TVBR observation: When it comes to increasing alcohol ads, the numbers don’t lie when it comes to cable. According to a recent report, from 2004 (the first full calendar year after the industry implemented its 30% standard) to 2009, youth exposure to distilled spirits ads on cable television doubled. In that same period, exposure to beer ads on cable TV grew by nearly a third.
