Old Navy Outdoes Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Gift Giving: See the Newest Ads on TV

Plus, the Five Most Engaging Spots on the Air

Published on .

Every weekday, we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new and trending TV commercials tracked by iSpot.tv, a company that catalogs, tags and measures activity around TV ads in real time. The New Releases here ran on TV for the first time yesterday. The Most Engaging ads are showing sustained social heat, ranked by SpotShare scores reflecting the percent of digital activity associated with each one over the past week. See the methodology here.

Among the new releases, Scrubbing Bubbles has the fix for a manscaping mess, while Anthony Anderson and Melissa Joan Hart push Walmart's Lego selection in the latest of an impressive number of Walmart holiday ads. And Old Navy serves up another spot featuring Amy Poehler successor Julia Louis-Dreyfus -- this time she fails to impress her niece and nephew with the pony she bought them for Christmas, because they're too excited about their gifts from Old Navy.
