1. Generate “buzz” / positive “word of mouth” with U2 fans (who spread it to casual and non fans) by showing it earlier in the month on TV in other countries and having special North American theater previews. The power of the internet !
2. Use heavy “sweeps month” advertising and “Thanksgiving Holiday special programs “ campaign to promote it. One example is expect to see a lot of Slane commercials during the CBS Thanksgiving football game and the College football games on Friday. How about a primetime commercial with “During your homecoming this holiday tune into U2’s own triumphant homecoming in Ireland during their Elevation Tour” ?
3. Show it on a Friday night rather than the dead TV night – Saturday (which was unfortunately used for the ABC POP special). The Friday after Thanksgiving is considered the official start of Christmas shopping season and one of the biggest shopping days of year. People come home from a long day of shopping exhausted – collapse in front of the TV – and watch the Slane special !
4. The Slane special is a great success and makes up for the POP special !

If CBS shows the nearly two year old Slane Concert on a Friday night at 10 pm, it would surely challenge the record held by the Popmart special as the lowest rated non news show in primetime network history.

Imagine if U2 had the 2 lowest rated show in prime time network history?

Yeesh.

Actually that special was shown on a Friday night as well.
