B&C has partnered with attention 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 March 26).

On the strength of 107.5 million TV ad impressions for promos leading up to its third-season premiere (April 19), Fargo is No. 1. FX’s promos play up the quirk of the Emmy-winning comedic crime drama, which is getting plenty of buzz thanks to the all-new star-studded cast (Ewan McGregor, Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, David Thewlis, Jim Gaffigan) lined up for the latest edition of the anthology-format show.

Crime actually dominates our ranking, with Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery (Investigation Discovery) taking second place and Prison Break (Fox) taking fifth. Reprieve comes in the form of comedy, ABC’s Jenna Elfman vehicle Imaginary Mary, at No. 3, and country music with the 52nd Annual ACM Awards at No. 4.
