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 Sept. 19.

An NBC promo for new fall drama Ordinary Joe is No. 1.

The rest of our top five is dominated by Fox, which for the second week in a row occupies three positions: second place for new musical comedy-drama The Big Leap, fourth for the return of first-responder drama 9-1-1, and fifth for new family drama ​​Our Kind of People.

ABC rounds out the ranking with a spot promoting its reboot of The Wonder Years in third place.

Notably, The Big Leap spot has this week’s highest iSpot Attention Index (127), 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).
