ABC’s Queens tops the Promo Mojo ranker for the week ended Oct. 17, marking the second week in a row the new musical drama is number one. Queens premiered Tuesday, Oct. 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
CBS once again makes a strong showing, taking second place to promote Queen Latfiah-starrer The Equalizer, up from third last time, and third place for limited-series CSI: Vegas, up from fifth.
New to the ranking this week: in fourth place, USA Network’s America’s Big Deal.
NBC’s sinkhole series La Brea closes out the chart, sagging into fifth place. Notably, the La Breaspot has the week’s highest iSpot Attention Index (129), meaning viewers were on average highly likely to watch it all the way through (vs. interrupting it by changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
