B&C has partnered with 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 Nov. 20).
Mars, the six-part miniseries that debuted Nov. 14, continues to get a huge promo push from National Geographic. The 244.7 million TV ad impressions it racked up during the seven days measured was enough to put it in our No. 1 spot again, though the total’s way down from its record-breaking 1 billion in our previous ranking.
Meanwhile, cable shows once again entirely own our top 5, with Search Party (TBS), Good Behavior (TNT) and Shooter (USA) returning, and Sister Wives (TLC) the week’s sole new entry at No. 3 with 148.9 million TV ad impressions.
