The Rock is the world’s most famous male celebrity at this point, and a show dedicated to his younger years is naturally going to draw interest. Few realized exactly how well a show like that would do.

The pilot episode of Young Rock brought in 5.034 million viewers to NBC for its 8:00 PM debut this week. It won the night by far.

The show brought in a huge .9 rating in the 18-49 demographic as well. This is a great start for the new show which meshes pro wrestling history with the past of the most electrifying sports entertainer to ever live.

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
