empire ratings

Fox TV’s hip hop soap opera Empire returned with a vengeance on Wednesday night. The gay-themed TV musical easily beat out the competition with 12.2 million viewers and a 4.7 rating among adults ages 18-49.

Criminal Minds (CBS) came in a close 2nd in the 9 p.m. slot with 9.34 million viewers, according to TV By the Numbers.

It was one-two punch for Empire‘s co-creator Lee Daniels, who won a copyright infringement case on Wednesday.

A California judge threw out a lawsuit by Jon Astor-White, who claimed Empire ripped off his script idea.

The judge found no similarities between Astor-White’s script treatment for “King Solomon” and the Empire TV show.

    *jacked Go Whoopi!!! :)

    Whoopi Goldberg is lending her name and financial backing
    to a new line of medical marijuana products designed specifically for
    women.

    Goldberg, who has been public about her own marijuana use, is one of a handful of Hollywood celebrities jumping into the marijuana
    marketplace. Bob Marley’s family has partnered with a cannabis company to produce Marley Natural products, and Snoop Dogg backs Leafs by Snoop. Goldberg said her “Whoopi & Maya” company received financial backing from three friends and family members, and she will serve as chairwoman.

    “I want to go nice and slow with this. I don’t want this to be a joke
    to people. It’s not a joke to women,” Goldberg told USA TODAY.

    The company she’s co-founded offers four products: a balm, a tincture, sipping chocolate, and a bath soak. All are infused with marijuana and aim to reduce the pain and cramps from periods. Pricing has not yet been set.

    The products sold under the “Whoopi & Maya brand” will be available only in California to people with their medical marijuana cards, and they’ll be on shelves in the next several weeks in at least five marijuana dispensaries around the state.

    PURCHASE, New York — Hillary Clinton, minutes after being interrupted by Bernie Sanders supporters here Thursday, slammed the Vermont senator for his response to Donald Trump’s comments on
    abortion.

    While calling Trump out for “outrageous” statements on women facing
    punishments for abortion — which the Republican front-runner has since
    walked back — Clinton notably took the opportunity to hit Sanders for
    suggesting Wednesday in an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that the country should instead have “a serious discussion about the serious issues facing America.”

    Though she acknowledged Sanders first called Trump’s comments
    “shameful,” Clinton argued that women’s reproductive groups like Planned Parenthood Action Fund and the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Law endorsed her instead because she’s “led on this issue.”

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    “We need a president who is passionate about this, seeing it as a top priority because women’s health is under assault,” she said.

    The former secretary of state charged Sanders with calling the frenzy around Trump’s comments a “distraction,” though Sanders never used that word exactly in his interview with Maddow on Wednesday and also made a larger point about the media’s role in covering the bombastic billionaire.

    Clinton similarly knocked Sanders for this in a follow-up interview
    with Maddow on Wednesday. “To think that this is an issue that is not deserving of reaction just demonstrates a lack of appreciation for how serious this is. This goes to the heart of who we are as women, what kind of rights and choices we have, it certainly is as important as any economic issue,” she said.

    A Sanders campaign spokesman did not respond to Clinton’s comments directly, but said “Sen. Sanders has a 100 percent lifetime voting record defending a woman’s right to choose and will do all that he can to protect and expand that right if elected president.”

    On Wednesday, campaigning in the state where she served as a senator for eight years, Clinton grew impassioned after being interrupted by a group of protesters.

    During a riff about not being “oblivious to the pain and frustration” bubbling nationwide, a group of students started chanting: “She wins, we lose!”

    A visibly angry Clinton responded to the activists, whom she
    identified as Sanders supporters. Clinton typically ignores or dismisses protests during her events, but wasted no time in commenting at Wednesday’s rally.

    “Oh, I know, the Bernie people came to say that, we’re very sorry you’re leaving,” she said.

    As they walked out, Clinton fired off statistics about how many votes she’s earned, boasting that she has one million more than Donald Trump and 2.5 million more than Sanders.

    She dedicated the rest of her speech to drawing contrasts with
    Sanders, who she has mostly been sidelining in favor of hitting
    Republicans on national security and foreign policy. Clinton attacked him on everything from college affordability and healthcare to the economy and climate change.

    In some of the strongest language she’s used on her rival yet,
    Clinton said, “I’m telling you, people. We actually have to do
    something, not just complain!”

    It is a tv show and does not have to do that .. Is this asked of other tv shows that do not have a large non minority cast ??

  • Fendi

    There’s a marketplace called webuyblack(dot)com. They are like the etsy of Black-owned businesses. Perhaps they have a vendor who sells the ‘white tears’ mug you’re looking for.

    Did you receive your donor t-shirt?

    Lol @ the Asian lady selling hair on their site. They knew there wasn’t a damn body with the legal name LaKeisha Chan. She tried it.

    What might you sell? Your last sentence makes me think about Fred Williamson’s Unsung Hollywood ep last night. Def a must-watch.

    Lakeisha Chan???? IDK. I wish I knew. I just know I like the feeling of buying Black, donating Black, giving back…Why not sell?! At one point years ago I funded a swap meet booth. She sold the typical oil burners, oils, and inscents that were home made. The burners and oils she found a wholesaler and sold them for a profit, but made her own inscents and lotions I believe…She did that a couple years…I’m not crafty…So I wouldn’t sell something I made…But maybe a for profit deal.idk…

    Thats just like saying I am not going to watch cartoons because people dont have special powers nor can they fly .. Its a tv show if you dont want to watch then dont ..

    I’m not a regular watcher of the show so I really didn’t know how far along her character was in the pregnancy,that’s why I said fetus. I mean I actually lost my first child in real life and he was 7 months old, so I guess I said what I said because the baby was still in the womb, which with some people might not make a difference, but to ME losing a baby that was actually born and you bonded with is different and losing a fetus still in the womb, IMO.

    I understand your point of view but from the point of view of a family experiencing a late term miscarriage, its is also devastating. If you were a regular watcher you would know how happy the family was about the baby and another Lyon child who’s paternity hasn’t been established. They’re big on heirs and legacy.

    bonding also happens in the womb. when you’re pregnant your mind is constantly in the state of “let me stay healthy and keep safe so that nothing happens to my baby. I just need to get him/her here.” all you wanna do is meet this little person that’s growing inside of you. it’s devastating losing a child either way whether the baby had a chance to take it’s first breath or not
