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 impressions. These are the shows networks have been promoting most heavily to drive tune-in (our data covers the 7-day period through Aug. 7).

No surprise that an NBC promo for the Summer Olympics continues to hold the No. 1 spot in our ranking, but NBC also takes over second and third place with two new entrants: Timeless, a sci-fi time travel drama starring Goran Višnjić set to debut on Oct. 3, gets a tense minute-long promo centered around the Hindenburg disaster. It’s already racked up just over 176 million impressions. And This Is Us, a new drama from Crazy, Stupid, Love screenwriter Dan Fogelman (Sept. 20), pulls heartstrings with scenes of childbirth, new love and an adult child reconnecting with the father who abandoned him. The promo's rung up 133.6 million impressions.
