Following a week in which traditional broadcast network ABC dominated the Promo Mojo chart by grabbing three out of five slots, cable networks return to list dominance in the week ending April 8.
TLC takes the top spot in our ranking with promos for its Trading Spaces reboot, which racked up 281.5 million TV ad impressions. TBS’s new Tracy Morgan vehicle, The Last O.G., holds steady at number two week-over-week, but the rest of the ranking is made up of fresh additions to the top five. Discovery’s documentary series Deadliest Catch, now in its 14th season, takes third place, while the second season of Food Network’s Iron Chef America reboot, Iron Chef Gauntlet, lands at fourth. Closing out our chart: MTV’s Jersey Shore reboot, Jersey Shore Family Vacation.
Notably, Iron Chef Gauntlet scores the highest iSpot Attention Index (140) in our ranking, getting 40% fewer interruptions than the average promo (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
