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. 6).
The six-part series Mars (debuting Nov. 14 on National Geographic) took the No. 1 spot in our ranking last time after its promo racked up 263.5 million TV ad impressions in just seven days. Now it’s not only No. 1 again, but by adding another 364.6 million impressions over the subsequent seven days, it’s far outpaced our No. 2 finisher, the 2016 Country Music Awards (ABC).
Pure Genius (CBS) repeats, holding steady at No. 3, while at No. 4 MSNBC offers a promo for itself (starring Chris Matthews), and new series People Magazine Investigates (Investigation Discovery) snags fifth place.
