B&C has partnered with 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 Oct. 30).

In our last ranking, the six-part series Mars (National Geographic Channel) squeaked into our top 5 at fifth place with 151.9 million TV ad impressions. This week it surges past the quarter-billion mark to take the No. 1 spot as its launch date (Nov. 14) nears. There’s only one other repeat on our chart: Pure Genius (CBS), which moves up one spot to No. 3, driven by an increase from 174.4 to 218 million TV ad impressions. The rest of our list is all about sports and event television, courtesy of NFL Network, ABC and Fox.
