Youths watched one-quarter of alcohol ads last year that were intended for adults, according to a report from Georgetown University's Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth.

Comedy Central, Black Entertainment Television and VH1 were singled out for overexposing kids to booze ads.

"Youths saw more commercials for beer than for juice, gum, chips, sneakers or jeans," the group said.
