These are the shows networks have been promoting most heavily to drive tune-in (our data covers the 7-day period through Dec. 18).
Beyond, the Freeform drama set to premiere on Jan. 2, was No. 4 on our chart last week, but surges to No. 1 this time on the strength of 166.4 million TV ad impressions for its promos, just edging out The Mick (Fox), which racked up 159.9 million TV ad impressions.
Two new entrants this week: Gold Rush (Discovery Channel) and the College Football Playoffs (ESPN). Meanwhile, Mars (National Geographic), which repeatedly took the No. 1 spot on our chart, slips to No. 4. The miniseries aired its sixth and final episode on Dec. 19.
