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. 1).
For the second week in a row, Fox's new sitcom The Mick takes first place, propelled by nearly 272 million TV ad impressions for its promos in just one week, basically holding steady (in the previous 7-day period it had 274 million). Tyler Perry's Too Close to Home debuts in our chart at No. 2 on the strength of 218 million TV ad impressions for its promos, leading up to its second-season premiere on TLC on Jan. 4.
Meanwhile, at No. 3, Freeform continues to put major promo muscle behind Beyond, while FX's hyperdramatic teaser for Taboo, which counts Tom Hardy and Ridley Scott among its executive producers, joins our ranking at No. 4, followed by ESPN's SportsCenter at No. 5.
