Winter holiday ads are heating up the season

Who’s on Top? – November 6-12, 2017

Advertisers pulled back a bit on new national TV ad spending during the week of November 6. Spend for new ads reached $142 million – a decrease of 15 percent from the previous week. NFL programming continues to be the most popular destination for new ad placements. Indeed, professional football games accounted for approximately one-third of all new spend for the week.

However as soon as gifts begin to appear, everyone comes together in excitement and a woman ensures the crowd that “Everyone wins. Presents for them Kohl’s cash for you.”


The remainder of Kohl’s new ad spending for the week went to general holiday sales commercials, announcing deals and savings on products like homewares, clothing and toys.
