If prime-time promotion and Stefano's return can't do it, I don't know what can.

I don't know why anyone thought Stefano returning would raise the ratings. The ratings and demos fell last year too for week of his "big return". I think the first day of his much-hyped return last year was on a Wednesday; the week started on that Monday with a 2.3 and by Friday it was at 1.9
I had tuned out before they brought him back last time since so much of what I was seeing at that point was lousy IMO! I thought the WAY they brought the "Phoenix" back this time was great as far as the family interaction and John's plans to dispatch his half-sibling! Since I missed the prime-time promos, I had no idea just how disappointing the ratings would be in combination with the old school location filming and Stefano's return! I thought the return was much more "gothic" this time than Sci-fi/ Reillyesque crap which could have been what many viewers were expecting when they heard the name "Stefano"! Then again, the show was doing pretty well for a lot of the Reilly stuff! :shrug:
