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 TV’s most-promoted programming ranked by ad impressions. Our data covers the seven-day period through November 27.

Fox’s FIFA World Cup Qatar is No. 1. The network also takes second place to hype upcoming celebrity reality competition Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test and fourth for College Football.

Rounding out the ranking are two cable networks: Hallmark Channel, which promotes A Holiday Spectacular in third, and Paramount Network, which gives some love to the fifth season of Yellowstone in fifth place.

Notably, Yellowstone scores the highest iSpot Attention Index (134) in the ranking, meaning viewers were on average highly likely to watch its promos all the way through (vs. interrupting viewing by changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
