Every weekday, we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new and trending TV commercials tracked by, 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, Kohl's is extending its holiday hours for the second year in a row -- it will be open 24 hours every day from Friday, Dec. 19, through Christmas Eve -- while Dish Network's Hopper means you'll never have to miss a game, even if you're visiting an eccentric aunt who talks to the moon. And toys come to life, sending kids into space, in a Toys R Us commercial for its sale this Friday and Saturday.
