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. 4).
Discovery tops our chart by racking up more than 176 million TV ad impressions for Harley and the Davidsons, a “3-Night Event” that kicked off on Labor Day. But the rest of our ranking is packed with promos for fall programming, including Better Things, created by Louis C.K. and series star Pamela Adlon, and Donald Glover’s Atlanta (both shows are on FX), as well as Speechless (ABC).
Meanwhile, Ion wants everyone to know that it’ll start serving up episodes of Law & Order: SVU mornings starting Sept. 25.
