Promo Mojo: 'Tyrant,' 'Cooks vs. Cons’ Among Top 5 Show Promos

B&C has partnered with to bring you a weekly chart we’re calling Promo Mojo: exclusive data showing the top five TV show promos ranked by impressions. These are the shows networks have been promoting most heavily to drive tune-in (our data covers the 7-day period through July 10).

FX’s Tyrant, No. 3 on our chart last time, jumps to first place thanks to a healthy boost in TV ad impressions (from 134.6 million last time to 157.7 million this time). Our previous No. 1, No Man Left Behind, is still getting major love from National Geographic, though. it hangs on at No. 4. Meanwhile, three new entrants make our ranking: Food Network’s Cooks vs. Cons—which is right up there with Tyrant in terms of estimated out-of-network spend—plus the 2016 ESPYs (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Awards) on ABC (airing Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET.) and HGTV’s Flip or Flop.
