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 Sept. 5.
An MTV promo for the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards — set to air Sunday, Sept. 12 — is No. 1. This marks the second week in a row in the top spot for the venerable tentpole show.
The rest of our top five is evenly split between cable networks and traditional broadcasters. HGTV builds excitement for Help! I Wrecked My House in second place, and FX hypes American Crime Story: Impeachment in third. Meanwhile, Fox dials up excitement for the season premiere of 9-1-1 in fourth, and ABC previews its reboot of The Wonder Years, featuring narration by Don Cheadle, in fifth.
Notably, the 9-1-1 spot has this week’s highest iSpot Attention Index (114), 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).
