B&C has partnered with attention and conversion 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 June 25).
On the strength of 162.8 million TV ad impressions for promos leading up to its July 5 premiere, Snowfall, FX’s new crime drama, takes our No. 1 spot. It deposes previous chart-topper Wrecked, TBS’s Lost parody, which slips to second place.
For four weeks in a row, broadcast nets have been shut out of our ranking as summer cable heats up. Rounding out the top five this time: HGTV’s mother-daughter home reno show Good Bones, Ava DuVernay’s OWN drama Queen Sugar and AMC’s comic book adaptation Preacher.
