B+C has partnered with always-on TV ad measurement and attribution company iSpot.tv (opens in new tab) 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 December 11.

Fox’s FIFA World Cup Qatar is No. 1 for the third week in a row.

The rest of the ranking is dominated by seasonal fare and specials: Hallmark Movies & Mysteries celebrates The Gift of Peace in second place and Hallmark Channel promotes Christmas Class Reunion in third, while CBS gives some love to its Ghosts “Ghostmas” special in fourth place and Disney-owned ABC engages in some synergy by promoting Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration in fifth.

Notably, The Gift of Peace scores the highest iSpot Attention Index (111) 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).
