by Brief Staff  |  11.23.2016

Daily Brief by PromaxBDA has partnered with B&C and iSpot.tv on weekly chart Promo Mojo, which offers data revealing 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. 20.

Mars, the six-part miniseries that debuted Nov. 14, continues to get a huge promo push from National Geographic. The 244.7 million TV ad impressions it racked up during the seven days measured was enough to rank it in the top spot again, though the total’s way down from its record-breaking 1 billion in last week’s ranking.
