SHOCKER: Only 9 Million Viewers Tuned in to Empire Midseason Break

Skye and Jamal Lyon

Fox TV’s soap opera musical “Empire” hit rock bottom in the ratings last night. According to TVbytheNumbers, only 9.1 million viewers tuned in to watch the midseason break on Wednesday night. That’s a drop of over 2 million viewers in one week!

Empire saw its biggest drop in the all-important adult 18-49 ratings point per household (3.2). Last week’s ratings point was 4.4!

Last week’s debut of Vivica A. Fox as Cookie Lyon’s sister Candace gave the series a much-needed boost in ratings. But Vivica did not appear in Wednesday’s midseason break.

The series dropped below 10 million viewers for the first time since the first episode of season 1!

Viewers blame Empire‘s grandiose co-creator, Lee Daniels, for the inconsistent storyline that focuses mainly on openly gay actor Jussie Smollet who plays boring Jamal Lyon.

Cookie and Lucious Lyon

The series will continue to lose viewers in droves until Daniels puts the focus back on the stars who brought him to the dance, Taraji P. Henson (Cookie) and Terrence Howard (Lucious Lyon).

Watch the full episode below, courtesy of Ddotomen.com.

  • Angela

    It’s going to lose a whole lot more viewers being the fact it’s on hiatus until March. Dumb move.

  • MzApple

    so Jamal not ghey no more? him and lesbun keys an item on the show now?

    ^^^^^^^^^
    I agree.

  • CaliYoruba

  • harley_quinn2.0

    A lot of shows have winter break and come back with new episodes in Jan or Feb

  • CaliYoruba

    LOL

  • Angela

    I know that but they don’t stay gone for almost 3 months.

  • Angela

    Look at how many viewers they lost between the season finale in March of this year and September? 6 months was waaaay to long to expect people to hold their interest. Now the show hasn’t been no where near hot as fish grease since its been back and they expect viewers to wait 3 more long months just to see Andre bug out because psycho Anika pushed his wife down some stairs?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    A lot of people on my FB page were talking about how good it was. Some girl said it should have lasted 2 hours but she’s slow…even though she graduated from my college.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile Game of Thrones take even longer breaks …. ugh …. heck you be done forgot what the heck the show is about smh

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Is that from my show? The show about the cheerleaders?

  • cpatterson_22

    He needs to give Porsha more airtime, her one lil scene was the best part of the whole show

  • Blaque Mahogany

    But Game of Thrones is good. It basically keeps getting better.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    My sister said it was good last night …. Ion watch this so I got nothing

  • MookieFly

    I just don’t understand the Jamal and Skye thing. He spent the whole 2 seasons screaming he gay and yall gone get used to it and now he all up on this girl.

  • Too Many Colors

    Power was gone for almost a year.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    True but hell I always have to go back and and rewatch the old episodes just to remember what the heck happened …. I think Game of thrones comes back this summer …. I think it’s expensive to film so maybe that’s why it takes so long Ion know …. hell I’m tired of them making me wait for walking dead too …. they make me sick with these breaks nah

  • Too Many Colors

    Im still confused

  • Too Many Colors

    Me too

  • Angela

    Wow. I don’t watch Power if I did I would have lost interest.

  • MookieFly

    Keys has always been a probable oyster connoisseur which makes their scenes together even more confusing

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    yep …. but I stopped watching power

  • MzApple

    why is drake on his head lmaoooooo

  • Tammie Reed

    Sandra has a point, I lost interest a few episodes ago and Taraji overacts to me on this show and I’m tired of the ghetto character Cookie and her loud mouth. I’d rather watch Black-ish.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    That is network tv for you. Cable shows will give all the episodes for that season and won’t come back for a year with the next season.

  • Too Many Colors

    That is the norm for cable shows. The long hiatus. If you watch it and follow it you wait for it. That is the way it is. Hell Big Love went off for damn near TWO YEARS. 17 months.

    For network shows it used to be that shows had a season. One season. Not no mid season BS etc. It was on from the fall to the spring and that was it. Re-runs in the summer. This wasnt even that long ago either. Bout a decade. Early to mid 2000’s is when it stopped. It had something to do with the TV show writers strike that happened, and then they started the current BS with this mid-season mess

  • MangoMama

    Its filmed on 3 different continents and has is the most expensive show HBo has ever produced. But still, the breaks are too long ?

  • E Love

    He’s confused… :) The show is confused! Lol…

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Yup and we waiting another 6 months for season 3 ?

  • CaliYoruba

    lol, Yes.

  • MookieFly

    It’s like watching Da Brat and Prince make out. I mean…yall COULD technically kiss each other, but that don’t make it believable

  • Too Many Colors

    I just said this! If you watch it you will wait on it. Its not even unheard of anymore.

  • E Love

    I do remember that…

  • MzApple

    omg i thought I was the only one over the loud talking and hood antics

  • CaliYoruba

    I have the 2nd season on bootleg..havent watched it yet…why did you stop?

  • Tammie Reed

    Irks my a** and now Taraji will be forever known for this ratchet character…poor baby. Folks already think all black women act like Cookie too, smh! I hate her wardrobe on the show too and those smedium dresses, Horrid!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I agree …. me and my mom was talking about that …. I am glad they do the marathons when they are about to air a new season …. cause the kid would be lost …… I do think I will read the books …… that may be what I get myself for Christmas….. I’m hearing they are literally sticking to the storyline in the books …. the walking dead not so much …. <<< which is a good thing because the comics is way too much off the chains …. whew

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Lee Daniels wants kids to believe being gay is fluid. This is the same group that screams homosexuality is not a choice.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    And I will be there ???

  • Too Many Colors

    Im glad Lee gave Mariah Carey twins REAL dad…Da Brat a role. So she can pay more than $40 on her 29 million dollar debt she owe that woman for busting her in the head with that bolla.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Why? Lol… I just… lol.

  • Cricket404

    I have the audio book on my phone, listen to it in Atlanta traffic.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ADHD was kicking in when I was watching …. kept getting distracted …. so I just said the heck with it …. I will try again one day …..

  • Too Many Colors

    I knew as a Mariah fan…Lee was gonna find her baby father a job. I just KNEW IT.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Oh wow … I have never did the audio book …… how is that … is someone reading to you….. I like to read myself …… I don’t even like reading on my tablet …. I like to have the actual book in hand …. but I do plan on purchasing

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    +1

  • B Cooper

    Like the show “Hit the Floor”. I use to catch it every so often but I thought it was canceled. It has been on hiatus since August 2014. I think it is due back next month but I don’t care!

  • Too Many Colors

    I wish they would bring back the old format of one season. No damn hiatus break in between.

  • MissHarlem

    Don’t talk about my boo like that ? she works on radio too. Every morning

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I don’t think it was Anika. Lee Daniels is too inconsistent and bipolar. He would have shown Anika’s face since we already know she’s crazy.

  • Too Many Colors

    I had forgot about that. So she done paid $700 towards her 39 million? *snorts* I love Shawntae too. Her ass need an Unsung. Ghetto Love with her and TBoz just was on my Pandora the other day. Dub10 had it on TLC station.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Got that right ….. show bout 6 episodes …. then (break) type of shyt is that ….. makes me damn sick with that mess ….

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Ok so this is what she was alluding to on the radio this morning. Because 50 cent said on IG he never gonna pay Ross baby mama and she pretty much co-sign ?

  • Too Many Colors

    What the hell happened to THAT show?

  • SummerBaby

    She dead azz wrong & need to run that lady her money.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Empire lost viewers because the plots lines moved slow as hell this season and it just took too long to get focused. But last night was a good episode. Boo Boo Kitty got me on the edge of my seat with her crazy azz! Naomi Campbell came through with that good wig. (Take note Viv!) Yesss, bish!!! They got it together well enough that I’m looking forward to March to see where it goes.

  • SummerBaby

    It comes back on in January finally.

  • Luv Pitties

    It was her I could tell by that little head of hers. Who else would have a reason to that besides her spiteful tail?

  • Luv Pitties

    Lucious killed me when he had tears in his eyes stating, “She fixed you.”

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Chile, I honestly forgot about it. Glad to hear its coming back though.

  • VeyoncèSupreme

    The thrill is gone lol I never watched this show too watered down for white ppl and gays. If white ppl were going to choose to watch “an urban ghetto black show” this is it. Power is it to me.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Oh I’m over the breaks too…I’m just really glad that Jon Snow is not DEAD!

    P.S. On demand usually has a special episode where they will catch you up on everything that happened the previous season.

  • Luv Pitties

    I saw her in the prison with Cookie but that was a half sentence, I missed the first few minutes what did she do?

  • SummerBaby

    I’m gonna need a marathon to get caught back up. I think after that dude killed him & his girl while FaceTime Floyd it was too much.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    All I remember is she Lil Mo’d someone at a club. But i don’t know out remember why she did it.

  • Luv Pitties

    According to Charlemange and his arched eyebrows Jamal is doing it for convenience.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Wait!? What?! Did I miss something. Smh. Let me see if it’s on demand.

  • SummerBaby

    I don’t remember why either, but the lady worked there so it’s really no good reason why. She was trippin

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Isn’t he truly Targarian ? Chile I’m so ready for that show to come back chile

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Are you saying you didn’t like the Dorothy Dandrige inspired wig?

  • Too Many Colors

    I think she admitted she was drunk

  • MissHarlem

    ?? hate you. I still wish she would give up that hairstyle. She on Rickey Smiley reality TV show on tvone too

  • SummerBaby

    No one of the background dancers got killed in real life

  • Luv Pitties

    I agree about her wardrobe, looks like she raided the props closet from Lil Kim’s Crush on You video.

  • Just Keya

    Can I say that I was HOT when Cookie spit in her face. And not because it was just nasty. But because I was SOOOOOO ready for Cookie to go to WERK on Naomi. UGH.

  • Tammie Reed

    LOL #Dead

  • SummerBaby

    Whale she should never drink again if that’s the case. I bet she had been drinking Gin ?

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Guuuurrrlll, that ole dusty highlighted mess!!!

  • Luv Pitties

    Walking Dead returns in March too, oh the agony!

  • Too Many Colors

    I never really watched it. Episode or 2. But that was Dub20 and her homegirl SHOW. Lord have mercy. Reminded me of when 90210 was on and me and my homies would watch it on 3 way. NOBODY would say ish until the damn commercial break.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I saw her on there conducting interviews. Had the nerve to try to hide her gay azz under the table when that lady was flirting with her.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Not 29 mill

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I just KNEW Cookie was getting ready to 2 piece that broad! Yeah, I was hot about that, too.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    what ya say Gin make ya sin ….. bawhahaha

  • Too Many Colors

    Why in the HAIL I dont fux with white likka to this DAY. White will make you fight. Tequila will get you pregnit. Brown makes you have to pee and makes you sleepy.

  • Luv Pitties

    Lol, they are going to make Cookie more ratchet before its all over with and that’s unfortunate. I would like to know what her drug addict sister did behind Cookie’s back though.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    Not true, The Walking Dead (and some others) comes and goes throughout the year.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I still love the show. It just leveled off which is normal and it is still the highest rating show.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Fawkas …. make me sick with that crap

  • Hill Candy

    Opening credits I knew I saw “Da Brat” name. Did I miss something I never saw her.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Don’t do zombies, but I have a friend who was a season long extra, so glad it’s doing well, so he can keep a job!

  • SummerBaby

    You already know! ?

  • Luv Pitties

    The show that comes on after that Into the Badlands is much better no zombies just martial arts.

  • imright

    im pissed i gta wait til March!?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    My mom said the same thang chile ….. now she an loves that show ….. me and her be playing phone tags on commercial breaks lololol

  • Just Keya

    YES!!!!! Hakkem’s stupid self. Cookie should of whooped that trick. Period.

  • imright

    she played Cookies homey from jail…she had abt 3 mins of shine

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Ok. Yeah, I do remember that. Sad. Smh.

  • MissHarlem

    I found that funny. Like girl please. In her defense it was the wrong time to flirt. Brat ain’t never come out and you on an interview. Flirt with her off the camera DUH ?

  • Luv Pitties

    And you know Naomi is just using that boy for her own benefit, she is going to toss him aside like yesterday’s trash.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Cookie spat on someone? Taraji should have put her foot down on that.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Why does his eyebrows look like that?

  • MookieFly

    When Charlemagne admits he bleaching is when I’ll start listening. Went from charcoal to Sammy Sosa lite

  • Luv Pitties

    I think they are plucked.

  • Too Many Colors

    Ummm Shawntae fine as all outdoors she put some real clothes on and yes. Lose that ‘do.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Y’all make it sound good on here with all the recaps, but nah…I’m Scary Mary and I know. Y’all not gon have me out for sleeping with the light on!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Curls were crunchy

  • Luv Pitties

    True, he isn’t attractive now but then a light skinned version, just no.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    In that screenshot, Alicia looks really pretty to me. Taraji looks like my aunt in her screenshot. My aunt is like 55.

  • Afiya

    Why folks so adament to see this show fail? #crabsinabarrel #goodshow

  • Luv Pitties

    Yea it was disgusting.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I HATE Hakeem and his weak azz! He ain’t happy unless some older woman is running him! Did you see him hop up on the table like my 3 year old jumps on her bed? I can’t stand him.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Just because you don’t like the show or you think it can be better it doesn’t mean you want it to fail…and it certainly doesn’t make you a crab.

  • imright

    like Da Brat & Tyrese n that video! ???

  • LibraGirlonly

    You know we don’t support one another.

  • Luv Pitties

    When Naomi is done using him he is going to run back to his parents with his tail between his legs. He is such a bish.

  • lil goodie

    Power does same thing

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Lol it’s more of a suspense than scary … but I got ya

  • lyn Alexandra

    They’ll pull out all the stops next season, you’ll see trannies more le’ gay scenes , they gone do it big ,mark my words, scandal started off good, now it’s just ridiculous with the agenda, I can’t! Still not interested in watching this mess, tv has gone to the dumps!

  • SummerBaby

    Didn’t Da Brat used to crush on A.I. back in the day?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Agreed

  • lyn Alexandra

    Her eyes, they age her! Alcoholic eyes…

  • nucynu25

    I don’t think I will ever love electronics that much, idk I just rather hve an actual book.

  • imright

    there was a tranny on the bus during Jamals Pepsi commercial….black w a blonde wig quite naturally.??

  • Blaque Mahogany

    You know what? You may be on to something. My aunt is an alcoholic too.

  • lil goodie

    Funny thing about it..they make you wait for a scripted show for months but will have some hot azz mess of a reality show up and running every three weeks….

  • imright

    prolly admired his braids

  • lyn Alexandra

    I don’t watch so you’re probably right, it’s too predictable !

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Brat showed us she could be sexy when she did that song with Tyrese. Brat had a banging body!

  • Just Keya

    He never had a mother. So the older women did that for him, but he needs to get his life together. Super stupid. He can’t see the bigger picture EVER. Young and fuggin dumb.

  • lyn Alexandra

    Wow, the eyes tell it all…

  • lil goodie

    Can’t wait until January!!!!!!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Naomi is going to chew him up and spit him out. Then Lucious is going to stomp his azz to dust!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Good Point. Clearly he has mommy issues!

  • lil goodie

    Did you hear that 50 will have a new shore on the Fox network next year as well…he taking empire down…

  • Just Keya

    I would of spit on her too. (in the show) Wasted 17 damn years of my life so my kids could have and here this bish come trying to take everything away from everyone just because she mad. Bish You don’t even belong. WTF you doing with this young ass boy anyway? Old hoe.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Shonda Rhimes, Lee Daniels, and Ryan Murphy are the agenda darlings.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Go ahead and drag the black woman. Can’t you guys find something positive about her?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I’m with ya there …. messed around and ordered my text book electronically ….. had it on my tablet …. that was the wrong move …. trying to be cheap …. I rather have a book too where I can flip the pages …..

  • lil goodie

    Catch it on demand…..it’s a good watch when doing the laundry

  • Just Keya

    I would of already stomped the shyt outta him. If I was Cookie I would of been on his ass. If she is such a good person for you, WHY has she yet to do anything to make you better? So you think she gonna be a old ass step momma to your used to be step moms new baby? FOH

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Exactly …. the shyt I don’t watch smh

  • Just Keya

    Hey girl!!!

  • imright

    lee daniels gay agenda game is strong?? but i do watch,weekly.

  • lyn Alexandra

    That’s what I thought, smh, I really loved scandal but I can’t watch it or most TV shows for that matter without picking it apart and seeing the agenda…

  • SummerBaby

    Dead ?

  • Hill Candy

    Oh ok, I must had blink and miss her.

  • lil goodie

    It was a woman tho..you could tell by the small framed hands of the gloves…

  • side_i

    This season just wasn’t well written…it was just all over the place, someone would make a comment or say something & you’d just be like what the hell?? Or a scene would happen that just made no sense but they didn’t want to delete it. This season just wasn’t cohesive & Lee making an appearance in that one episode showing is his true queendom….such a narcissist

  • lyn Alexandra

    Not dragging her, just having a discussion like most folks on this forum hun! No ones hating !

  • lyn Alexandra

    Lol…

  • SummerBaby

    I only watched 2.5 episodes this season. I been sew busy. I did see last nights episode tho!

  • lil goodie

    Da Brat little part was good..they were talking about it on Ricky smiley morning show…she was happy to be working…

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Those three play the role. Ain’t no half steppin with them.

  • Just Keya

    Last night kind of did that though. Now we have to see what Lucious and Cookie are going to do with losing everything. It will have to focus on them

  • lil goodie

    They need to stay off until March…gives then more than enough time to work on a better story line….

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I actually liked it last night.

  • lyn Alexandra

    Got it!

  • lil goodie

    It was better last night than it has been in past couple of weeks

  • Too Many Colors

    Nobody is dragging her @Chits.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    she was happy to be working…
    ………..
    This part tickled me lol. They threw the brat tat tat tat a bone ?.

  • Yoni

    Did you hear/see that she was rushed to the hospilah? I thought about you when I heard the story.

  • Noirluv45

    Last night was the best episode this season. I hope that Daniels will stick to one or two story lines and stop jumping all over the place.

  • VV

    This mess was all over the place last night. The Jamal & Alicia story is just lame. Like why?! In real life ain’t no dang concert happening in Prison especially after your arse was there 17yrs LMAO. Lee Daniels needs to stop it already. Only thing I did like was Hakeem’s “I”!

  • stav

    Last nights show was surprisingly decent, I think they are going back to the drawing board to get back the viewers they lost with that terrible writing they were doing. I felt last nights episode was really good , it reminded me of the first season when the show was good.

  • Yoni

    Has @Bootcamp been in today? I want to know if she got her dress yet.

  • lil goodie

    They need to start from scratch

  • stanley

    Yea I agree. The main focus should be on Terrance and Taraji. And They need better writers.

  • lil goodie

    Except for that fake azz gun shooting…

  • OSHH

    Taraji makes this show and has from day one.

  • lil goodie

    Off topic: but does anyone know why Kim hotrashin has not given birth yet..she has been pregnant since January????

  • SummerBaby

    They do actually have concerts & comedians entertain at some prisons. I do agree most folks ain’t stepping foot back inside after doing a bid that long to put on a show. I don’t think most wardens would allow them in especially if they’re still on papers

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Absolutely I even posted on Facebook about it which I haven’t done since episode 1.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    It’s been on but I only tuned in to laugh with the Roses lol. Last night I paid attention.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    yep and it was the reason they had me hooked during Season 1 but Leah is trying to make it about Jamal and I have 0 phucks to give :coffee: I still don’t know why they got rid of the original writers :shrug:

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    ????Me and Slanted Eyes AINT WATCH *bam*

    ???

  • 1/8

    I watched last night’s episode, because there was nothing else on TV worth watching. Half way through the program, I got bored and went to bed.

  • Sleepy One

    Is she still on papers?

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    +1
    And pics!

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    They still got my ratings emm tho I wasn’t paying attention much. He did too much this season.

  • Sleepy One

    No it won’t because everybody wants to at least know #whopushedRhonda

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    they said she had a performance scene that was cut :( Brat can still spit!!!

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Hmmmp prisons get their guest entertainers ?

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Hugs lol

  • SummerBaby

    I don’t know. I’ve only watched 2.5 episodes this season ?

  • OSHH

    I wasn’t all in this season either, but that is because like others have mentioned the writing fell off. This finale looks like a nod in the right direction. I don’t mind the hood factor( which is appropriated worldwide btw) because blackness can and does have many layers.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    ??

  • Hugga Bunch

    Lol

  • Hugga Bunch

    Thank GAWD!

  • Sleepy One

    Yes he is still ghey, Luscious lied to that man and said that Alicia was Jamal girlfriend.

  • Sleepy One

    I just love that messy show too! Its coming back, I just can’t remember when.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Ditto! And I’m sick of the way Cookie treats her. Hopefully that changes one day.

  • lil goodie

    They played it in the Rickey smiley show..it was ok

  • Hugga Bunch

    I wasn’t ready for this comment! Lmao
    ?

  • Sleepy One

    I think they dated

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    @Summer. Chile who didn’t?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I watched Black-ish

  • Hugga Bunch

    I can’t breath! ?????

  • 1/8

    “They do actually have concerts & comedians entertain at some prisons.”

    No wonder so many jailbirds return to the nest… free housing, food, and concerts?!

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    watered down?

  • Sleepy One

    Cookie was in prison for 17 years straight, y’all lucky she adjusted to being on the outside and was able to start her own company within a year. Shoot most ppl come out after that time can’t even get right, still making spreads for dinner and using flip phones.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I thought she was due on the 25th of Dec.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I watched Supernatural. I really do love Dean and Sam Winchester…like for real.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Caught that too.

  • SummerBaby

    I don’t think the entertainment is the reason. Years ago Monique taped a comedy special at a women’s prison

  • Too Many Colors

    How convenient. Kids just born to closest holiday available? Cause lil MultiDirectional suspiciously came on Father’s Day

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    :facepalm:

  • Too Many Colors

    I said it with some chill.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Maybe the break will help. Who knows. I’m praying it helps scandal.

  • 1/8

    The show was really good, but prisoners don’t deserve to be entertained.

  • Just Keya

    Hey! Don’t talk about kids who will be born close to a holiday *poof*

  • Just Keya

    I remember that.

  • SummerBaby

    Bitter Petty Betty says: NOT

    Lee only listens to Lee. He’ll get it eventually…maybe.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Didn’t see it, but I’ll try to catch up. Empire was my loved one’s show we would absolutely watch together no matter what. It’s bittersweet. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why I get in Lee’s arse so much. At least make this show enjoyable as S1. Dayum! Stick to what works!

    I know you like to be shady on purpose but I think you made an honest mistake this time by posting the Thanksgiving ratings. Last night’s ratings were actually 11.5 million viewers.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Hi ma’am! ? Personally, I don’t want the show to fail. I would like for the show to “flow” and make sense. I want to be entertained and not have to break out the cooking sherry and a flowchart. Season 1 was great, but there is a noticeable difference in this season compared to last season. Stick with what works.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Girrrrl ?

  • Noirluv45

    Yeah, maybe he will listen. If viewership keeps decreasing, he might finally get the hint. *shrugging shoulders*

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    One of my friends said the same thing yesterday. She says it’s good and it’s not based on zombies. I’m going to sit over here with @Let Your Soul Glow and let you guys recap.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Now THAT would have been good.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    New baby?!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    It’s a pretty good show

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    You said down to da white meat? Chile…?

    She might as wait in the corner with Rick Ross’s baby mama and 50’s creditors. ?

  • Brice Taylor

    Go back to the same formula they had for the first season and stop bring all those Hispanics on the show.

  • Meme81

    I don’t think Hispanics are the problem. ?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Before I changed my ways ?…?…I found out gin is not your friend.

    BTW, where is Jen Nay? ?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Just a regular connoisseur. ??

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    …and fall out.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Chile…that WHOLE cd is that fur. Whatcha like? A whole lotta. The cut with Millie…smh. They don’t make’em like that anymore.

  • Angela

    I never thought about that…But we won’t find out for sure until June…

  • Carla

    The Anika storyline is so stupid

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Yaaaaasss! I just saw this…AGAIN! Had me CRACKING up!

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    See…?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Whaaa?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I either fold real fast or not at all. Then, I have to rewind or pause because another load needs attention. ?

  • Monday

    I only watched 1 episodes of Power and none of Empire….

    I wonder if I’m the only one

  • Brownie

    I really thought I was alone. smh She goes above and beyond with this hood character.

  • Gal Butler

    That’s not a hiatus, that’s the end of the season. difference.

  • Li

    We still have the overnights to find out how many recorded the show. Fox is using the overnights for ratings.

  • sealsaa

    “Only 9 million”. Hell, I wish that I owned a product that generated the interests of 9 million people…

  • shaybytheway

    I just binged watched all 5 seasons now I feel like what is life about?! :-(

  • shaybytheway

    Scandal does every year. At least this season we get double the episodes.

  • C B

    This site is so negative. 9 million viewers is excellent. Considering the events of what happened in California, I am sure there would have been more viewers. Black people like Sandra Rose are never supportive of anything black. And this site also feeds off the “everybody” is homo. Really? is that the only way you can get traffic to your site? So when Empire is off the air, then Black people will start to complain. Fact: There aren’t that many roles for black people in H-wood. Fact: a lot of people have jobs because of this show: in front and behind the camera.

  • Tea???

    The show is just dumb I’m mad they made Anika crazy over Hakeem ???? they focus too much on Jamal who sounds like a goat when he sings taraji and Terrance are the only good actors it’s just hard to sit through a whole episode and take it seriously. I think Lee focuses so much on Jamal because he’s loosely based off of his own life.

    I enjoy it, its read by an older British man who is actually really good. The book gives more background and details. A whole chapter would be crammed into one scene on TV. Check out the beyond the show details on YouTube.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Thanks I will !

  • Synsyn83

    Look I think he’s setting up the show for longevity , first season was crazy but overkill , it’s a lil more settled down and all these stories are forming …. It’s very entertaining to me , love the show !

  • maleorderside

    Rick and Morty is gone to 2017 and its a damn cartoon

  • maleorderside

    Ryam Murphy sucks. Get off Shonda’s balls. And Lee Daniel needs to FOCUS and get off his high horse.

  • maleorderside

    Yeah, the last three episodes were good. But he just sunk in the earlier episodes.

  • maleorderside

    co-sign. boo boo kitty and getting the empire back should be the focus.

  • maleorderside

    Yeah, it became the Jamal and Hakeem show. Hakeem is a weak actor and Jamal character is evil one ep and good the next -_-

  • maleorderside

    she is my god now.

    Porscha might be the one to get with Cookie if it comes down to it. I need her to stand up to her though.

  • Hugga Bunch

    That episode is classic! Lmao Martin was like, “Where’s the hell is scratch?” ?

  • lilli lilian

    Ha! Y’all are something else. I scanned all the way down trying to read the comments to see how folks felt about Empire and every comment I passed was about winter season hiatus/season breaks being too long and the filming location of game of thrones, LOL!. Not one Empire comment other than the one about the March break. LOL at their March break being more discussion worthy then the show. Welp, I for one am over the show and it’s weird choice to have musicians guest star as a character, why are they not appearing as themselves like how they did on Entourage, better yet how about they don’t appear at all. Lee Daniels is putting all his bucket-list script dreams into this one show

  • Luv Pitties

    I wasn’t ready for his eyebrows! Lol

    I agree. It was a woman with a manly walk.
