In the UK, they arrive about every 10-15 mins and last about 2-4 mins 
exactly.  You clearly have an ad break at the start and end of the show, 
so the others will be distributed pretty equally (to a high degree of 
accuracy) within the rest of the show.  Typically a 30 min show will 
have one ad break.  An hour show probably has 3.

You can probably do better than this, but I think the problem is easier 
than you suspect if you see what I'm driving at?
