Brand names are almost never mentioned in US TV shows, but almost always in commercials. That would be a good indicator that a
CC was in a commercial if it had a brand name in it. I would not expect that a list of brand names would be difficult to assemble.

Even product placements usually only show the product, not talk about it.

The only way for advertisers to defeat this method would be to pay to have their brands mentioned in the shows.

Might need to special case "Sponsered by" occurrences since that show up a bit in sports.
