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 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 Nov. 27).
After three weeks at the top of our chart, the National Geographic mini-series Mars drops to No. 2, deposed by Fox’s Star, the musical drama starring Queen Latifah that’s set to premiere Dec. 14. Promos for Star racked up just over a quarter billion TV ad impressions in the seven days measured.
People of Earth (TBS) and Sister Wives (TLC) make return appearances in our top 5 and are joined by new entrant Incorporated, Syfy’s buzzy dystopian drama. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are among its executive producers.
