B&C has partnered with attention analytics company iSpot.tv to bring you a weekly chart we call Promo Mojo: Exclusive data showing the top five TV promos ranked by TV ad impressions. These are the shows networks have been promoting most heavily to drive tune-in (our data covers the 7-day period through March 12).
On the strength of 170.5 million TV ad impressions for promos leading up to its series premiere last night, NBC's Trial & Error is No. 1. "John Lithgow talks about his new comedy," an announcer enthuses in one promo, setting up the star's explanation of the show's darkly funny take on "real-life crime documentaries."
Crime also factors into two promos for ABC shows, Designated Survivor at No. 4 and The Catch at No. 5, plus an OWN promo for Oprah Winfrey's Greenleaf at No. 3. The one crime-free reprieve in the batch: Nickelodeon's plug for the 2017 Kids' Choice Awards at No. 2.
