B&C has partnered with attention analytics company iSpot.tv to bring you a weekly chart we call Promo Mojo: Exclusive data showing the top five TV promos ranked by TV ad impressions. These are the shows networks have been promoting most heavily to drive tune-in (our data covers the 7-day period through Jan. 29).
On the strength of 119.4 million TV ad impressions, Fox’s 24 spin-off 24: Legacy holds onto first place for the second week in a row in the run-up to its big premiere (as the lead-out program of the Super Bowl).
Meanwhile, newcomers to our chart help shake up the ranking, including The Magicians (Syfy) and HGTV's promotion for its latest Dream Home Giveaway, which integrates into programming across the network. Another novelty in our top 5: ABC's TGIT (Thank God It’s Thursday) ad, which promotes three shows — Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder — in 30 seconds.
