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 May 7).
On the strength of 237.8 million TV ad impressions for promos leading up to the big show, the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards makes its debut in our ranking at No. 1.
Our previous chart-topper, National Geographic’s Genius, slips to No. 3, while HGTV’s Flip or Flop Vegas holds steady at No. 2.Rounding out our chart are two new entrants: Animal Kingdom, TNT’s hit crime drama (returning for its second season on May 30) and Beat Shazam, Fox’s name-that-tune game show hosted by Jamie Foxx (premiering May 25).
