B&C has partnered with always-on TV ad measurement and attribution company iSpot.tv to bring you a weekly chart we call Promo Mojo: exclusive data showing the top five TV promos ranked by ad impressions. Our data covers the seven-day period through Oct. 24.

A promo for ABC’s new musical drama Queens tops the chart, marking the third week in a row at No 1.

And CBS once again takes second place to promote The Equalizer — as well as third place for Ghosts

(CBS snagged third place the previous week, too, but it was to promote CSI: Vegas.)

The one cable network in the mix, HGTV, hypes the new (16th) season of Love It or List It in fourth place, while ABC gives some love to The Bachelorette in fifth.

Notably, The Equalizer spot has the week’s highest iSpot Attention Index (127), meaning viewers were on average highly likely to watch it all the way through (vs. interrupting it by changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
