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 April 9).
On the strength of 210.8 million TV ad impressions for promos leading up to its Sunday premiere, Investigation Discovery's three-part special Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery is No. 1. The tense promos promise "the untold story" about "a tragic case."
FX's Fargo is behind it (151.9 TV ad impressions) at No. 2 — the biggest promo blitz for a returning series (season 3, April 19). And the rest of our ranking is also filled out by cable shows — Cooper's Treasure (Investigation Discovery), Flip or Flop Vegas (HGTV) and Better Call Saul (AMC) — crowding broadcast nets out of the top 5.
