Rated SPG Commercials?

Do you think TV ads should be also regulated by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB)? Why did I say this?  Here is the scenario:

The other night, Mommy is crocheting while watching TV then Matt approached. To her surprise, she was slapped by Matt and said: “Walang sa’yo Nicole! Akin lang ang asawa ko!”

 Then we realized that the commercial of the ABS-CBN’s latest soap, “The Legal Wife”, was shown. 
Matt got the scene here

I know parents should guide their kids in watching TV shows especially the rated Parental Guidance (PG) and Strict Parental Guidance (SPG) by the MTRCB. But what if the current program is rated G (General Audience) and suddenly such kind of TV ad was shown? Should they also regulate such TV ads?

Parents, what are your comments and ideas regarding this?
