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 5 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 Feb. 4).
For the second week in a row, NBC grabs the top spot on our chart with its promos for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, which racked up 325 million TV ad impression over seven days. And once again, TNT’s The Alienist holds steady at second place while scoring the highest iSpot Attention Index (127) in our ranking, getting 27% fewer interruptions than the average promo (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
HGTV earns two spots in our ranking — third place for Home Town and fifth for Flip or Flop Nashville — while Animal Planet’s bit of Super Bowl counterprogramming, Puppy Bowl XIV, shows up (adorably) at No. 4.
