FOX aren’t just onto a hit with their new show ‘Empire’, they’re onto a certified smash!
Because, for the seventh consecutive week, the Lee Daniels series has delivered its highest ratings.
The show’s eighth episode aired last night and registered a series high rating of 5.3 among adults 18-49.
As for total viewership, the Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson title leaped to 13.75 million viewers — rendering it the most watched telecast of the night.
Impressive on many a front, The Hollywood Reporter crucially notes that ‘Empire’s growth – up 39 percent from its premiere – means it has now grown more than any other broadcast drama since ‘House M.D’. a decade ago.
Needless to say, it’ll be intriguing to see if the music drama can keep hitting such high notes as it struts towards its two-hour season finale on March 18th. Whatever the case, its status as a major must-see series is cemented!
