by Brief Staff  |  03.08.2017

Daily Brief by PromaxBDA has partnered with B&C and attention analytics company iSpot.tv on the weekly Promo Mojo chart, 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 seven-day period through March 5.

On the strength of 226.2 million TV ad impressions for promos leading up to its series premiere, ABC’s Time After Time takes the week’s top spot. The Kevin Williamson-developed drama is based on a 1979 sci-fi novel by Karl Alexander that was made into a movie of the same name that also came out that year.

The rest of our ranking is equally divided between broadcast and cable shows, with FX’s star-studded Feud: Bette and Joan in second place, and Making History, from sister network Fox, in fourth. Meanwhile, NBCUniversal siblings E! and NBC take the third and fifth spots with, respectively, The Arrangement and Shades of Blue.
