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, Bud Light premieres a teaser for its Super Bowl ad featuring Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen, Diet Dr Pepper continues the Lil' Sweet campaign with an ad featuring American Idol alum Justin Guarini, while Subway shows us that its chefs have a lot of time on their hands.

Finally, an interesting coincidence last night: T-Mobile and Sprint both aired new spots mocking Verizon's ad that compares the competition using colorful balls.
