2. Many television commercials are as well-produced as, if not more so than, some of the most popular shows.

Which of the above sentence is correct?

Thanks.

@tanguatlay,
Number two is correct, however, the comma should come before "than," and not after it:

Many television commercials are as well-produced as, if not more so, than some of the most popular shows.

Alternatively, you could just leave the comma out altogether:

Many television commercials are as well-produced as, if not more so than some of the most popular shows.
