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 Nov. 14.

A CBS promo for its Adele One Night Only special, which aired Nov. 14, is No. 1.

Another traditional broadcaster, ABC, lands in third place with its promo for the 2021 CMA Awards, which aired Nov. 10.

Cable networks round out the rest of the top five, with Hallmark Channel celebrating its original movie My Christmas Family Tree in second place, HGTV building excitement for the third season of Fixer to Fabulous in fourth, and Food Network promoting the fifth season of Christmas Cookie Challenge in fifth.

Notably, the 2021 CMA Awards spot has the week’s highest iSpot Attention Index (121), 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).
