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 Oct. 3.

An NBC promo for La Brea is No. 1 for a second week in a row. ABC dominates the chart overall, though, grabbing second place for Big Sky, third for Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 (a joint promo for a “crossover premiere event”), and fourth for The Wonder Years reboot.

CBS takes fifth place to hype the new season of The Equalizer, which means that traditional linear broadcasters have now swept the Promo Mojo top five for three weeks in a row.

Notably, the Big Sky spot has this week’s highest iSpot Attention Index (109), 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).
