Published on .

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 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 spots, athletes Russell Westbrook, Mike Trout and Justin Tuck help Subway celebrate what it calls "Avocado Season"; Kohl's celebrates its "Lowest Prices of the Season" sale; and two Lipton Iced Tea delivery guys celebrate "the taste of peachiosity" with a R&B-style slow jam (awwww yeah). Ad Age's Natalie Zmuda has the backstory on Carl and Stu.
