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 seven-day period through Feb. 28.

On the strength of nearly 315 million TV ad impressions, an NBC promo for new sci-fi drama Debris takes first place. The network also lands second place with its 2021 Golden Globe Awards promo. MTV, the sole cable network in our ranking, grabs third to hype Floribama Shore, while CBS and ABC take fourth and fifth to promote, respectively, Clarice and Soul of a Nation.

Notably, the Debris spot has the highest iSpot Attention Index (115) in our ranking, 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).
