Published on .

Every weekday we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new TV commercials tracked by iSpot.tv, the real-time TV ad measurement company with attention and conversion analytics from more than eight million smart TVs. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time yesterday.

A few highlights: In a cross-promotion with Universal Pictures, the animated star of "The Grinch" (in theaters Nov. 9) learns a bit about himself thanks to a 23andMe DNA-testing kit. The Isley Brothers' "Shout" serves as the soundtrack of an exuberant Walmart ad set on Christmas morning. And Starbucks wants you to "sip a cup of magic" by trying its seasonal peppermint mocha.
