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 17).

On the strength of 446.2 million TV ad impressions, a promo for TNT’s original series Snowpiercer is number one for the second week in a row.

Also for the second week in a row, traditional broadcasters are absent from our top five, with TNT joined by Discovery, which hypes All on the Line and Bering Sea Gold; Nickelodeon, which serves up a Team Umizoomi-themed promo for sister brand Noggin; and Fox News, which promotes its continuing coverage of the coronavirus pandemic.

Notably, the Nick/Noggin promo earns the highest iSpot Attention Index (148) in our ranking, getting 48% fewer interruptions than the average promo (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
