Typically a one-hour primetime broadcast network program is 42-48 minutes long with station identification and commercials filling the reminder of the hour w/ commercials.

Cable networks used to have more commercials (and they still do during daytime programming), but now the running times of a program tend to be approximately the same for primetime cable and broadcast TV with the occasional show (like Mad Men) with longer running times if up to 45 minutes and therefore only about 15 minutes of commercial time.
Most commercials are 30 seconds in length with the occasional 15 second and 60 second spots showing at times. but there is no standard as to how commercials need to be 30, 15 or 60 seconds in length.
