Epic: ‘Empire’ Ratings Rise…Yet Again

Published: Thursday 5th Mar 2015 by Sam


Indeed, that’s the word on the lips of many following the blockbuster debut of FOX‘s new show ‘Empire’.

Each week since its January debut, the Lee Daniels music drama has climbed in the ratings.

And while many were doubtful the trajectory would continue, the Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson title has once again defied the odds.

Details below…

According to TV By The Numbers, the show’s ratings soared to a series high last night, delivering a whopping 5.7 in the all-important 18-49 adult demographic – up six percent from last week.

As for actual viewership, a colossal 14.19 million tuned in, making yesterday’s episode the highest rated for any regularly scheduled broadcast drama since the October 1st 2009 episode of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’.

The slayage is real!

      Lucius is a f****** monster!!
      Hakeem is an idiot, and Hakeem & Jamal are both artists. If he does hand the company over to Cookie and/or Andre I’m gonna flip.

      & seriously, the acting on this show is fantastic! I love how they’re slowly but surely letting all of the cast members shine a little bit more with each episode from Andre to the smaller players like Cookie’s assistant, Gabourney Sidibe, or the s*** head of security, to name a few
