B+C has partnered with always-on TV ad measurement and attribution company iSpot.tv to bring you a weekly chart called Promo Mojo: exclusive data showing TV’s most-promoted programming ranked by ad impressions. Data covers the seven-day period through May 29.

NBC’s America’s Got Talent, now in its 17th season, is No. 1, while another NBC series, new dance competition Dancing with Myself, takes fifth place.

Alongside NBC in second is fellow traditional broadcaster ABC, hyping the 2022 NBA Finals.

Rounding out the ranking is Food Network, which grabs third place to promote new Guy Fieri vehicle Guy’s All-American Road Trip, and No. 4 for the fourth season of Supermarket Stakeout.

Notably, Guy’s All-American Road Trip scores the week’s highest iSpot Attention Index (119), meaning viewers were on average highly likely to watch its promos all the way through (vs. interrupting viewing by changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
