Yeah, this is one of the (many) reasons I've stopped watching Bones. So awful. I think it's even worse in movies. I paid $15 to see this pile of crepe. Step. OFF!
I keep hoping if I quit watching shows that do this and boycott products that do this, eventually they'll all stop... [/delusional]
I do think that Psych manages to pull it off on occasion. I think it's a combo of good choices for sponsors (snack foods! appropriate for both Shawn & Gus) and good writing. I hope they can continue to Not Suck at it.

Heeeee. "Why am I here??" "Because you're easily distracted." "No I'm not!" *holds out snickers bar* "Oooooh! Thanks man. I was starved."
Cute, and in character. That I can live with. They had a similar one, I can't remember the episode it's from now, but they're searching somebody's locker and Lassiter asks what the suspect had, and Shawn pulls out a bag of Snyder's pretzels and says "... the hungries?" Also cute.
I love that show...
