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 5 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 Oct. 15).

Discovery’s Gold Rush tops our chart, displacing our previous No. 1, Fox’s The Gifted, which shifts to fifth place. Promos for the eighth season of the reality show about gold miners racked up 221.9 million TV ad impressions, outpacing our No. 2 show, the TNT drama Good Behavior, which kicked off its second season on Sunday. Notably, Good Behavior promos have the highest iSpot Attention Index (116) in our ranking, getting 16% fewer interruptions than the average promo (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).

Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, ABC’s fantasy comedy-drama starring Jason Ritter, holds steady at No. 3, while National Geographic’s The Long Road Home, based on the Martha Raddatz best-seller about the war in Iraq, debuts on our chart at No. 4. Nat Geo’s “global miniseries event” kicks off on Nov. 7 and helps tilt our top 5 toward cable shows after several weeks in which fall premieres from broadcast networks dominated.
