Packing a double whammy in the form of ‘Empire’s season 3 return and the series premiere of the Sanaa Lathan-led ‘Shots Fired,’ Wednesday (March 22) proved itself to be a big night for the good folks at FOX.
As the charts above reveal, both series dominated ratings in their respective time slots. ‘Fired,’ though edged out by ‘Survivor’ in overall ratings, came as the highest watched non-reality show series of its hour (and the most watched new program of the evening).
Elsewhere, Cookie, Jamal, Hakeem, Lucious, and the gang not only left their nearest competition (for the hour) in the dust, but were just a few points shy of dominating the entire night’s ratings.
Congratz to both series and here’s hoping to their sustained successes!
