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 June 6.

On the strength of 299.2 million TV ad impressions, NBC’s promo for the summer return of America’s Got Talent takes first place — the second week in a row the show tops our chart.

Meanwhile, in second place, CMT hypes the 2021 CMT Music Awards, airing Wednesday (June 9); ABC gives some love to, well, love — The Bachelorette version of love, at least — in third; and new TBS game show The Cube (premiering June 10) gets a dramatic promo in fourth place.

Rounding out the ranking is a spot for Hallmark Channel’s new TV movie You Had Me at Aloha.

Notably, the CMT Music Awards spot has this week’s highest iSpot Attention Index (108), 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).
