The success of ‘Empire’ is no fluke.
Last night saw the music drama return for its much anticipated second season — and it did not disappoint in the ratings.
The Hollywood Reporter confirms the network’s golden goose delivered dinosaur sized numbers with yesterday’s episode.
Lee Daniels’ hit easily outperformed everything else on TV last night (and this week) -excluding football — with an average 6.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 16 million total viewers. When compared to previous episodes, that’s only eclipsed by the March finale as the highest-rated ever.
Yes, yes, and yes! Especially, as ‘Empire’ easily passes the sophomore the test.
Naturally, all eyes were on whether it would still be as compelling, as funny, and as outlandish as its initial run – and it was.
The punchlines hit like Mayweather and there were many a moment to muse over on social media (i.e. Boo Boo Kitty’s stiff twerk). What’s more, the long list of cameos didn’t take away from the show and instead highlighted how big it’s become in Pop culture.
All in all, huge congrats to all!
