Sounds like you played around with the "Commercial Flagger command" setting
in mythtv-setup and broke it.  You probably put in the full path to the
mythcommflag program or something else.  Clear out that field and all should
be good.  

If you put anything in that field, you have to put the proper arguments
to call the flagger with, otherwise it will run in its default mode which is
to try to flag all unflagged programs (which is what seems to be happening
based on your description).
