Nat Geo Gives ‘Earth Live’ Promos a Quarter Billion Ad Impressions

And more from Promo Mojo, our exclusive weekly ranking of the shows networks are promoting most heavily

B&C has partnered with attention and conversion analytics company iSpot.tv to bring you a weekly chart we call Promo Mojo: Exclusive data showing the top five TV promos ranked by TV ad impressions. These are the shows networks have been promoting most heavily to drive tune-in (our data covers the 7-day period through July 9).

On the strength of just over a quarter billion TV ad impressions for promos leading up to its July 9 premiere, Earth Live, the Jane Lynch-hosted National Geographic wildlife “global event,” again takes our No. 1 spot.

Our top three held steady week-over-week, with FX crime drama Snowfall returning at No. 2 and HGTV’s Flip or Flop Atlanta again taking No. 3. That leaves fourth and fifth place to, respectively, two newcomers to our ranking: TNT’s Shakespeare drama Will and TLC’s OutDaughtered, a reality show about a family with all-girl quintuplets.
