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 Jan. 24.

On the strength of 317.6 million TV ad impressions, a TNT promo for Snowpiercer takes first place. Cable networks have the edge in our ranking this time, with TNT joined by MTV, which hypes Teen Mom OG in second place, and CNN, which promotes Lincoln: Divided We Stand in fourth.

Rounding out the ranking are traditional broadcasters CBS, which gives some love to Clarice in third, and Fox, which drums up interest in the new season of Prodigal Son in fifth.

Notably, the Prodigal Son spot has the highest iSpot Attention Index (148) 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).
