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 7-day period through June 20.

On the strength of 246.3 million TV ad impressions, an HGTV spot for Renovation Island takes first place. The network also grabs fifth place to promote Celebrity IOU.

Meanwhile, Food Network serves up a taste of BBQ Brawl in third and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries hypes To Catch a Spy in fourth.

ABC, the sole traditional broadcaster in our ranking, grabs second place to hype Holey Moley.

Notably, the BBQ Brawl spot has this week’s highest iSpot Attention Index (111), 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).
