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 Jan. 15).
Is O.J. Innocent? The Missing Evidence,Investigation Discovery's provocatively titled docuseries, has appeared in our ranking twice before (once at No. 2 in December and then at No. 5 earlier this month), but vaults to No. 1 this time on the strength of just under a quarter billion TV ad impressions for promos leading up to its Jan. 15 premiere.
Meanwhile, following a week in which cable networks swept our top 5, Big Four broadcaster Foxreturns to our ranking twice with major promo love for 24: Legacy at No. 2 and APB at No. 5, while its cable sibling FX plugs the return of Zach Galifianakis vehicle Baskets at No. 3 and History hypes its new SEAL Team Six drama Six at No. 4.
