The TV Shows and Apps that Delivered Ad Attention in June 2022

Major Primetime broadcast hits like "This Is Us" wrapped in May leaving open an opportunity for new programming to top the list for Primetime Ad Attention. We see this trend play out every summer as networks replace dramas and sitcoms with less-scripted content.  In June , reality TV,  game shows, and competitions topped our lists of programming where audiences paid attention to ads.  

Ad Attention is a metric that helps advertisers understand the relative value of placements across CTV and Linear. Because advertisers can buy at the program level on linear, but not on CTV, it makes sense to review program attention data for Broadcast and Cable networks, and app-level attention data for ad-supported applications. 

TVision's Ad Attention metric measures how well a program keeps viewers' eyes on the screen during commercial breaks. The average ad attention for linear television is 37% and 31% for CTV.
