Targeted Review Campaign - People haven't watched the show.

I noticed on Twitter that a certain fandom has created a campaign to give 10 star ratings to a show that 36 hours ago only had roughly 13 ratings. It now has over 700 on the show title and multiple reviews for each episode. It seems to me this is false advertising, especially since it's impossible to determine if people rating the show actually watched it. It seems this type of rating campaign is harmful to the integrity of IMDB's review/rating system. Please review the included image indicating proof of the campaign. 

The show is Roadfood: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt16401516/?ref_=tt_urv

@Michelle​ I just wanted to provide some new information. It appears the false reviews on this show have now led the host of the show to believe it's doing better than it actually is. It's disheartening to believe that someone so involved in the show could be fooled by these false ratings. 

In addition, the official RoadFood Twitter account just requested rating reviews without asking users to watch the show. 
Please take this additional information into consideration, and if possible, provide an update on the ticket. 
Thank you for your consideration,
Goob
