Watch the newest ads on TV from GoDaddy, NerdWallet, Toyota and more
Published on August 15, 2018.
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: James Patterson pops up in an ad from publisher Little, Brown and Company to endorse a new novel ("Texas Ranger") from, yes, James Patterson. NerdWallet wants you to "turn to the nerds" (Ad Age's Adrianne Pasquarelli has the backstory: "Nerds rule in NerdWallet's first campaign from Argonaut"). And GoDaddy says "The average person spends 24 hours a week online"—and that "If you don't have a website, that's zero hours for you."

Data provided by iSpot.tv, Attention and Conversion Analytics for TV Ads
TV Impressions - Total TV ad impressions delivered for the brand or spot.
Est. TV Spend - Amount spent on TV airings for the brand's spots.
Attention Score - Measures the propensity of consumers to interrupt an ad play on TV. The higher the score, the more complete views. Actions that interrupt an ad play include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV.
Attention Index - Represents the Attention of a specific creative or program placement vs the average. The average is represented by a score of 100, and the total index range is from 0 through 200. For example, an attention index of 125 means that there are 25% fewer interrupted ad plays compared to the average.
