B&C has partnered with iSpot.tv to bring you a weekly chart we call Promo Mojo: exclusive data showing the top five TV show promos ranked by impressions. These are the shows networks have been promoting most heavily to drive tune-in (our data covers the 7-day period through July 24).
NBC has a major presence at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this week, but the network is already looking ahead to its next tentpole: next month’s Summer Olympics in Rio. Though promos from Food Network for Cooks vs. Cons and USA Network for its Emmy-nominatedMr. Robot take the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in our ranking based on their ad impressions (146.0 and 142.9 million, respectively), a high-spirited Summer Olympics promo from NBC, in third place with just under 125 million impressions, is tops in terms of estimated in-network value, thanks to high-profile placements in pricier time slots.
