B+C has partnered with always-on TV ad measurement and attribution company iSpot.tv to bring you a weekly chart we call Promo Mojo: exclusive data showing the top five TV promos ranked by ad impressions. Our data covers the seven-day period through Dec. 5.
Event television dominates the ranking overall, with NBC singing the praises of its Annie Live! musical special in third place and ABC hyping its latest Live in Front of a Studio Audience special (featuring live stagings of episodes of The Facts of Life and Diff’rent Strokes) in fifth.
Notably, the Freeform spot has the week’s highest iSpot Attention Index (131), meaning viewers were on average highly likely to watch it all the way through (vs. interrupting it by changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
