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. This is the programming the networks have been promoting most heavily to drive tune-in (our data covers the seven-day period through May 24).

On the strength of 293.6 million TV ad impressions, a promo for TNT’s The Match: Champions for Charity is No. 1 (the golf special was also simulcast on TBS, TruTV and HLN). Cable networks dominate our top 5, with TNT joined by Nickelodeon, which hypes its Wild About Movies family film night in second place, and National Geographic and Discovery, which promote, respectively, Barkskins and All on the Line in fourth and fifth.

Meanwhile, NBC, the sole traditional broadcaster in our mix, grabs third place for The Titan Games

Notably, the Nickelodeon promo has the highest iSpot Attention Index (146) in our ranking, getting 46% fewer interruptions than the average promo (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
