Jussie Smollett star continues to rise in Hollywood thanks to his well-received role in ‘Empire.’
Alas, his role has done little to stop the show from sliding to new lows on a ratings front.
Bad news below…
Last Wednesday’s episode is now the lowest-rated episode since its Thanksgiving midseason finale last November.
Empire, ratings drop 12 percent to it’s lowest numbers since Thanksgiving’s mid-season finale, which is not a good sign for the once record breaking TV series. However, the show still was able to draw in 11.3 million viewers and 4.2 in the key demographic.
News of the show’s decline comes despite an intense campaign launched by Naomi Campbell to promote her role in the series on several platforms and game-changing storylines thrown into its mix by its writers.
