by Brief Staff  |  11.09.2016

Daily Brief by PromaxBDA has partnered with B&C and iSpot.tv to bring you a weekly chart we call Promo Mojo, offering 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. This week’s data covers the 7-day period through Nov. 6

The six-part series Mars, debuting Nov. 14 on National Geographic Channel, took the top spot in our ranking last week after its promo racked up 263.5 million TV ad impressions in just seven days. Now it’s not only first again, but by adding another 364.6 million impressions over the subsequent seven days, it’s far outpaced our second-place finisher, ABC’s 2016 Country Music Awards.

CBS’ Pure Genius repeats on the list, holding steady in third, while at number-four MSNBC offers a promo for itself starring Chris Matthews, and Investigation Discovery’s new series People Magazine Investigates snags fifth place.
