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 7-day period through June 13.

On the strength of 227.1 million TV ad impressions, an ABC spot for The Celebrity Dating Game takes first place. The previous week’s ranking was topped by an America’s Got Talent promo, but this week it drops to fourth.

Meanwhile, TBS hypes new game show The Cube in second, and a CMT promo for the CMT Music Awards takes third.

Closing out the ranking, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries gives some love to Aurora Teagarden Mysteries in fifth.

Notably, the America’s Got Talent spot has this week’s highest iSpot Attention Index (107), 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).
