low Rsquared values

Good afternoon!

I am running OLS regressions in Eviews with a very large number of observations and get very low Rsquared values because of that. I was wondering if there is anyway for me to increase the R-squared values while still keeping my large sample.
If it is not possible, what is the most reliable criterion in order to assess a regression with large samples?

I will appreciate your feedback a lot. Thank you very much :)
