The New Releases ran on TV for the first time over the weekend. 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, Taco Bell brings its Ronald McDonalds back (Maureen Morrison previewed the spot and offered background on Taco Bell's breakfast strategy last Thursday), while Bud Light continues to plug its Whatever, USA, stunt (E.J. Schultz reported on the start of the quirky campaign in June). And Best Buy reminds you that it is "America's back-to-school techfitter."
