B&C has partnered with iSpot.tv to bring you a weekly chart we call Promo Mojo: exclusive data showing the top five TV promos ranked by impressions. These are the shows networks have been promoting most heavily to drive tune-in (our data covers the 7-day period through Sept. 18).
For the first time since we introduced Promo Mojo, all of the Big Four broadcast networks make our cut, with Fox taking the top spot thanks to its massive promotion (221 million TV ad impressions) for the Damon Wayans vehicle Lethal Weapon. CBS stands out here in that its heaviest promotion isn’t for a new fall show, but for its two-part special The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey. Meanwhile, the one cable network in our top 5, FX, has been putting its money on American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare.
