Empire

Empire is in a dog fight for its own survival in the ratings race. Wednesday night's episode was down 14% from last week's midseason return -- an all-time low for the series. Despite an expensive marketing budget, viewers did not return from the winter break.

Deadline.com -- There were betrayals, guns, scheming grandmas, tunes and more on Empire last night as usual, but there weren’t as many viewers in the key demo. Still the highest-rated show of the night (though by thinner margins than usual), Fox’s hip-hop drama was down 14% from last week’s winter break return to hit a \series low. For a declining blockbuster like Empire, which has seen more than a few lows in its current third season, to put blame on its lead-in is thin gruel; the fact is the second week of Shots Fired (1.0/4) saw the limited series go down just a tenth from its March 22 debut.

    Welp!

  • Tammie Reed

    Welp!

  • Keisha Hannah

    Those winter breaks are way to long. I forget all about Empire.

  • JV

    I used to really like Empire. Then the writing fell off and it turned into one of those bad soaps my grandmother used to watch. There are WAY too many characters to properly develop, and the younger actors can be especially bad -- pretty much anyone Hakeem hangs around with. Jamal sings ALL THE TIME and the storylines become so convoluted that you don't remember if you like somebody or you don't. The cameos got old quick too.. when Chris Rock showed up to be a tough guy in prison, the show jumped the shark.

  • hottlanta

    Loving these hearings where Dump words have come back to haunt him while he said that Russia didn't hack the election.

  • Chryssy

    I like Shots Fired so far. I still have to catch up on Empire.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I left off at season 2 somewhere, it's too much to take in and it's oversaturated with guest appearances. I stick to Jamie St. Patrick and nym on Power. Now that's the show!

  • Tink Tink

    My wife still watches this show (along with Scandal) to support "Black TV." If it ain't good, I ain't watching. She told me I should watch Shots Fired, that its pretty good. I'll start as soon as I finish "This Is Us."

  • Baylahh

    I have tried to be loyal and watch... but I can't get into it anymore :

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    My question is, what happens now that the cat is out of the bag? Are they going to actively rid of him once and for all, or debunk his false truths and move on to the next lie to uncover. I guess what I'm saying is, what are the consequences?

  • Ms.Caramel

    Never liked it anyway. Too ghetto. Why can't blacks make more thought provoking shows like The west wing, madame secretary, criminal minds, etc..

  • Chryssy

    For it to only be ep. 2, it is a good show imo. I have to watch This Is US on demand. I keep hearing rave reviews about it.

  • Toni ToniToni

    No one is feeling all these long ass "winter" breaks. WTH. I miss the way TV used to be. Bammas got off for 2 weeks at Christmas and then the rest of the season played for the remainder until end of MAY. We got like 24 to 32 episodes in the good ole days. Now we have to wait for 3 months to get 4 more episodes out of 10 to 12 episodes. TF?

    They need to stop this midseason ish. FOLKS have short attention spans with all that is keeping us distracted or busy

  • Tony Winston

    LIES, RATING WERE ACTUALLY VERY GOOD, DON'T LISTEN TO SR, SHE IS A LIAR

  • Chryssy

    So this is off topic, but what happened to everyone? I saw a comment the other day that all the regulars had dipped out.

  • Tink Tink

    I really like it so far...I'm on epi 9 or 10. Mrs. Tink also has me watching Greenleaf, and surprisingly, I like it too. I can't get with the other show though with the rich white family and black cleaning lady with the crazy daughter.

  • Tink Tink

    Blog owner was getting jealous of KDub and her "followers" and banned a few of them because they always went off topic. Others got upset and started boycotting. I think, they (KDubb and Krew) even found a hacker to fvck up her system too cause its been crazy since Monday

  • Carrington

    Why did I read this headline and see Sandra in my head smiling real real hawd as she typed it? LOL

  • OrchidJones-Got Dat Job

    I am visiting my family...been on my hustle grind, thuggin for that job life!
    How my family dern?! Dang missed yall!!

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    even found a hacker to fvck up her system
    I hope that is not true & if it is seems like Sandra was correct.

  • OrchidJones-Got Dat Job

    aw man...say word? I been away for 3 months and now this?? say it t'aint so!!

  • Carrington

    The reality is that these shows lose viewers because of all of these breaks they take. People get frustrated and don't come back because of the way they've set-up this new "season system"... Some shows go away after 6 episodes and then take a two month break, then come back for 4 episodes and then come back for another 3 before the finale... nobody is checking for that bull$hit. Then some shows get you interested after 8 episodes and end in July and then say, "We'll be back in February." GTFOH! By then, I've found another show on another station in your timeslot and I'm not interested in re-watching the series before it comes back next year to remember what happened. The networks lose viewers for these shows.

  • Tink Tink

    Yep....It's been quite dead in here. I have never posted this much, because, well, I usually am too entertained by everyone else to do so.

  • OrchidJones-Got Dat Job

    Damn man, feel like retreating... going back into my hole!
    Thanks for the update... someone done (4)ucked up the church's money!!

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I agree, there are too many other shows to watch. Now adding the firestick, netflix and a host of other streams available.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    yeah, the show hasn't evolved. I didn't watch past episode 2 of season 2, but was able to start with last week's episode without 'skipping a beat.' It's never good when a viewer can miss that many episodes and jump back in and all characters are exactly the same.

    They aren't advancing the characters; cookie and Luscious are still fighting over bs, it's still singing every episode. It only seems like they toned down the homo eroticism. It will not make it to season 5. Sorry Taraji. You're gonna have to get on another show to see that syndication money. Empire isn't going to do. Now they can always cut salaries and fight tooth and nail to get to syndication (100+ episodes). We'll see.

  • nucynu25

    That up date is bullshit . We don't come here bc bishes always fake victims . This "update " is a prime example we ain't here but yet we followers & still on the keyword auto button . Sandra is constantly disrespectful to us as a whole @ her banning Dubb for bs was icing on the cake .

  • MystyBlu

    There is no "Krew" and if it was we damn sure wouldn't be wasting time hacking this blog ? It's been acting raggedy all on its own. Ion know why I expected better conspiracy theories but this ain't it.

  • Chryssy

    Oh my. ThAnks, I've been reading this site since 2009 but I've missed alot since Disqus changed things.

  • Tink Tink

    I know there isn't a crew, just like there isn't a "leader" but folks kept acting like there was so I'm just playing on that

  • MystyBlu

    She banned Blue too, but I guess she ain't reach Krew leader status yet. Straight bs! Thanks for playing though ?

  • nucynu25

    ????

  • MystyBlu

    Understood. But it's tired and played at this point. Having like minds about "certain" topics doesn't make a group or crew. Same people who bounced have disagreed on this blog regularly

  • ThisIsWhat40LooksLike

    You did better than me. I didn't make past season 1?

  • Tink Tink

    There was never a Krew Leader, but posters kept posting that. Sandra even kinda played on that (the reason I say she was jealous)....I think my sarcasm isn't quite noticeable today, but since yall out :hi:

  • Tink Tink

    That was just a joke, lol. Sandra just has a messed up server....I think

  • KarmaBackAround

    haven't been interested in this show since it started.. I tried and tried, just wasn't good to me at all!

  • jussaying

    I don't think that's part of the problem for Empire. It's that shows that have no character growth and poor writing. HTGAWM follows the same prime time network schedule and I always come back to that show because it is well written, the characters grow and they actually have character arcs. This Is Us does the same and everyone is excited for season two. The problem is that most of these network shows are recycled cliches upon cliches with no real innovation. Poor writing does not retain people's attention to keep tuning in week after week. Also, if the show was really good, you'd watch it. There are things called DVR that take care of that excuse..

  • MystyBlu

    You cool with me Tink, so excuse my frustration. It's not really directed at you. Barely posted here in a week yet keep getting notifications about people fonting stupidity about followers, gangs and bullies when the real reason folks are fed up is that this blog has become increasingly hostile towards its own audience. Missing girls posts did it for me. Disgusting how anyone can twist a story about missing children into denigration of Black families, blaming children for being taken advantage of. The bannings were just icing on the shyt cake. The raggedy server the ice cream on the side. Btw, only two people were banned unless I get the ax for this comment. Folks are just tryna save face ?????

  • MystyBlu

    Empire shouldn't have taken such a long hiatus. I forgot about it. ?????

  • nucynu25

    ??? they be ready to attack the gang ...

  • nucynu25

    Bloop

  • jussaying

    because we're not in old times and the format for how people watch television is drastically different. also, i like it better with fewer episodes that way the storylines don't drag on unnecessarily. if it is a good show, you get better more focused quality writing and none of that filler.

    i like the way tv is now because i barely watch a show when it actually airs. with netflix, sling tv, amazon, there are so many quality shows and if it is on a streaming service you get the ENTIRE season at one time.

  • missmiami305

    I've never watched a single episode but would miss Cookie.

  • jussaying

    did you? I thought Shots Fired was horrible. they basically touched every freaking racial cliche in the first ten minutes so I had to turn it off.

  • missmiami305

    Hey girl??

  • MystyBlu

    Hey Hon! ? Hope all is well with you and the family!

  • cherrypie

    I saw it last night and thought the very same thing after missing season 2. I was like damn Cookie and Luscious still fighting??? The episode was ok but Lee Daniels brought back that gay shyt not a lot but kissing scenes between two men does not interest me. Taraji will be fine. She will find another role either through a series or through movies. Not sure about the other characters tho if the show is cancelled but they should find something else. But, they need to hire better writers.

  • Chryssy

    Don't explain anymore. This has been going on in the garden with the "clique" rumors and such...wayyyy before the change. Thanks for telling me though. I didn't mean to start any drama.

  • SunnyChi

    ??? the last part sounds so ridiculous.

  • cherrypie

    So true!! There's too many options and when you have a series that goes on hiatus for 3-4 weeks unless its an amazing show like This is Us then you are going to lose viewers. Society's attention span is not that long and even with DVR's there's still no guarantee that the show will be watched within 48 hours so it can go towards the week's show ratings.

  • Chryssy

    BTW...I caught the sarcasm and I found it funny. Lol

  • takenaback

    Unfortunately they all take a hiatus now.
    Pisses. Me off too. But, I can't tell the networks what to do. It just not as good as it was during that first season. The same for scandal.

  • Chryssy

    Oh, The Haves and the Have Nots..I don't watch either. Does your wife watch If Loving You Is Wrong? Last season had me looking at TP crazy bc the whole season took place in one night. I was like dang can they go to sleep and wake up for breakfast? Dang. Lol

  • Tink Tink

    I've never watched it, never even heard of it, so I'm going to say no.

  • Chryssy

    I did. I thought it was interesting for the tables to turn...somewhat. I said that I would give it a chance for 3 episodes.

    Oh okay, they all come on OWN I believe.

  • Django the God

    I'm wondering did she watch the episode.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    That's what I got from it too! Like where this shyt going? At some point some changes need to be made. But hey it's a soap opera in my opinion. Just not everyday thing

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    When u watch it, it seem so far fetched Like really u gon marry yo ex who got pregnant by yo son? Really??

  • Tink Tink

    Been going on since I joined 2009

  • OrchidJones-Got Dat Job

    hey nucynu25...I didn't know it was all going down in the s/r. This just all happened like last week?

  • jussaying

    yeah, there is a real case where a black officer shot a six year old white kid dead going on rn.

  • nucynu25

    Yeah .. blue & dubbed only ppl banned tho ..

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I don't watch shyt like this noways ...But hey... I got nothing for this.... Sub-par writing imo .... I need shows with depth chile

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Y r there any therioes at all? It ain't that deep with me

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Only two ppl wherebanned? I thought it was more based on comments. Hmmmm

  • missmiami305

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I watched 1 1/2 episodes of this season one . Then I watched a few more episodes the next season. I would rather watch Netflix and Hulu . I could watch this on Hulu but I am not interested ..... next season should be the last . Go out on top with a good finale . Taraji said the role is wearing her out anyway......

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    +100

  • Chryssy

    I hate any situation where a child is involved, regardless of race. With this show I really want to see if the young black cop will be charged and if they will prosecute the sheriff's office for the young black boy's death. Race, politics, and religion are very touchy subjects. Btw, what state did that happen in?

    I stopped watching after Cookie spat on someone. A classy lady would never do that... not unless she was using it as lube. ?

    I'm feeling very Joan Rivers, today!

  • Ms.Caramel

    Spitting on someone for lube is disgusting. I guess sex is not clean and wholesome like it used to be.

  • Mel

    That's cus SVU is where it's at and my new fave show Designated Survivor ?. Who ready for scandal ? Huck best not be dead or me and baby teef shonda finna have beef.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I watched it and I will watch it again .... it left on an interesting note. I watch it on Hulu at my leisure with limited commercials. Not as good as American Crime with Regina King.

  • Mel

    Wholesome? Lmao when I hear that word I think of missionary and that's it. Btw spit as lube is a no no if the kitty dry maybe she not into him ?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    It's a joke. I dated a guy who tried to spit in my mouth because he saw it in an adult film and thought it was sexy. I slapped him and threw him out of my house.

    I was really hoping this show would be like a black version of Dynasty or Dallas. Instead, I got Good Times with a better clothing budget.

  • missmiami305

    Girl at the end of the night I eould climb in bed with my laptop and read all the comments i missed earlier in the day. It was my lil personal time. Looked forward to it. Everybody else would be asleep and i would be ?. Man it really is the best medicine. Would also gain a lot of insight via the different perspectives.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Hey Caramel!!!
    I want to watch something that interest me. Most times I am watching Kid friendly shows! When I do wind down it with a book mostly.
    ! I found Aunt Sandy on Facebook and the comments are rude and Auntie gets with them!!! My favorite thing she says is Thanks for reading!!! Then she says Hon!!!! Or Hun as in honey!!!!! That is so funny... in the south we do things like that ALL the time! We let people get ugly , then say thank you for your time , see you the next time!!!! Thanks for that , Bye Now!!! We appreciate your business ! All of it means go to H#**! ???

    Comparing this site to Trump administration.. nobody should be surprised by the things his friends, surrogates and supporters say. Trumps comes across as a racist who is not politically correct and his friends see that as ok behavior. This website has attracted lurkers and an audience due to the shady write-ups and witty/shady comments. Whether the "crew" or "clique" is here this atmosphere was set.

    The crew gets banned but the blogger gets cease and desist letters. Now BACK TO LURK MODE

  • Ms.Caramel

    Lol, yep. My favorite is..." thanks for sharing"

  • kekeb

    I stopped watching. Others I know have as well, so I can somewhat believe this.

    2. Tyriq offers booboo kitty witness protection to testify against cookie. so she jumps on a bus into witness protection and leave her kid with hakeem.

    all andre talks about killing lucious.... uh! I need andre to go back to acting crazy...

  • understandingoverignorance

    This show was never compelling enough to keep viewers with its shallow premise and over the top drama that just grew stale very fast.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

  • Clopretty

    it's the same thing every season! everyone is going to get tired of hearing cookie tell us about how many years she did for Lucious, we tired of seeing Lucious stealing his kids music artist they are working with! and we tired of seeing such a dysfunctional family! maybe if they tried switching it up and had the family come together with the show being centered around music which i thought it was supposed to be with a little family drama here and there their rating will just maybe go back up! but clearly everyone is tired of the same old story!

    Still trying to hang on but over all the Jamal issues. His story line not even good but every scene seems to be about him. Also I am tired ? of nessa and dre.

  • jussaying

    Lol girl what are you talking about. Wes is not a murderer. He didn't kill his mother she died of stomach cancer. And Rebecca (his girlfriend) was killed by Bonnie - that was revealed in season 2. He just said that to throw off the police. Him being murdered threw me off though i was like noooooooooooo.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    I know a bunch of people who stopped watching when it seemed they were pushing the gay thing pretty hard. Seemed like they just kind of overdid it.
    Then the writing overall just seemed to get weaker over time.

  • We Can Do This

    Right to the point.

  • Li

    Don't believe these headlines. Actors have all signed on for 2 more seasons. Terrence has a contract for 7 seasons.
    Empire will continue until at least season 5.
    It's still the highest rated drama on network (not cable) TV.

  • Li

    It's over the top campy. It's popcorn TV. I love it!

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    The quality of the writing has really dropped off a lot since the first season.

  • Li

    Don't believe it's going down....all the actors have signed on for 2 more seasons. Terrence is locked in for 7 seasons.

  • We Can Do This

    50 Cent is somewhere laughing like Danny Glover in that Color Purple scene.

  • Stacey J

    The story lines aren't good anymore and they have way to many holes in them... and the breaks are too long....by the time it comes off all the different breaks they take during the season I've forgotten why I was watching in the first place to begin with.

  • Mirella

    Good job!

  • Ms.Caramel

    I'm dumb? Yet you're the one who keeps fonting me like you're obsessed. You just can't help yourself can you?????

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I thought in this latest season I just watched .... Wes left a message saying he killed Rebecca and Analise's husband. I know he didn't kill his momma but he was not innocent Wes at all. The show keeps me hooked....

  • MystyBlu

    Bytch please, thought I was blocked?! You wish someone was even interested in your tired ass. You the one obsessed and tryna get attention. Try a nut and a smile ??

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    They say he is real life dating Aja King his former costar!!! If so he likes women with melanin!!!! That's a little surprising ....

  • jussaying

    Right. He was lying about Rebecca. He said that because the police were trying to pin everything on Annalise and so that was his way of exonerating her. Bonnie killed Rebecca and Frank helped her get rid of the body in the woods; they showed that in season 2. We already knew he killed Annalise's husband accidentally because the hubby was trying to hurt Rebecca. That was season 1 and what set off the cluster eff of events lmao. This is also why Connor never really liked Wes.

  • Ms.Caramel

    If you weren't interested you wouldn't constantly font me. Your responses are so smart. Tell me something, Why you so angry? ?

  • jussaying

    Yeah that's false. Alfie ain't dating Aja she was just trolling people. His gf is supposed Brazilian (or an ugly sprite). He was seen kissing her in Brasil like back in Feb. I hope they broke up and he actually is with Aja now. you cant really tell with her because she's also close to jack (the white dude who plays connor).

  • Ms.Caramel

    So much anger... It's gonna be ok...?

    Listen up! This is important! Ahem!

    Scandal is on right? I need to know if Huck is alive please report asap...

  • MystyBlu

    I usually just font ABOUT you so consider yourself blessed today that I took the time to call out your bs. Trust you have no affect on my moods one way or another. I pity your ass. So sad, so stupid.

  • Ms.Caramel

    You usually font about me. Now you're fonting to me... lol, yep. You're obsessed... It's ok, you can keep fonting if that's what you need...?

  • MystyBlu

    So you know what blocked really feels like ????

  • Ms.Caramel

    Ha!... Good for you!... You go girl...

  • dontgetblocked

    I made it through two episodes this season and then I just stopped caring. It's too over the top. Too much ghetto. Story lines all over the place. Everybody is gay or bisexual. It's just a ghettofied trainwreck. Power is a superior show. Solid story lines. Good acting. Strong characters.

  • nucynu25

    Let me expound on why she called you dumb .. you said that the closet that you hve gotten to kinky was dark men which implies dark men are abnomeral , unclean, not wholesome . So if that is your perspective on dark skinned ppl ..yes , bish you are dumb!

  • Ms.Caramel

    No it does not imply that dark men are any of those things. Since you don't know me you can't possibly know what I meant. I'm very light and really dark men bring out my wild side so thats why I said kink. So before you come out swinging for a cause, it would behoove you to first find out where a person is coming from.

  • MystyBlu

    ?????? EXACTLY

  • Ms.Caramel

    Wow... You articulate so well yet it takes two of you to complete a thought. And all you do is insult. You shole is smart...?

  • A D N

    People can't stand Jamal's singing, and they are centering the storyline around him this season...again...

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I'm into tying my partner up and having my way with him... toys, food, etc.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    They took some pics with him and her family but she won't comment about anything. They could be just friends and she is posting to make it more than it is. I would be happy for them if it real...,

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Ok then.... thx.

  • zawnn

    Why was blue banned? And why is everyone in a frenzy?? I'm agreeing with everyone else : I miss y'all commentary... now everyone is just up in here defending themselves lol NoSirBaby (u name it challenge vegan boy voice) lol

  • Nita

    After the first season and one episode of the second season I was done

  • Faux Gibbler

    They stole that's woman's life to make this show anyways...

  • Shanese

    I always ask myself if people still watch empire these days. Welp ?????

  • Shanese

    Signing for 7 seasons doesn't mean it will make it to 7 seasons lol. It just means if it DID, then he will be there for all of them. At this rate who knows

  • Shanese

    Wes killed Sam so he is a murderer. That's why Connor hated him so much, he felt like that was the start of it all. However I give it to them! They sure know how to keep it going even after everything that's happened thus far

  • Shanese

    Can't wait for power!

  • Tea??

    People are getting tired of them breaking out in performance every other scene, Jamal and his love scenes, and the show just became too predictable too fast ?????

  • Tea??

    It be like when you're fúcking the director ?

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Prof. Taco Juice

    Truth, I turned to blackish when ol dude and Demi's daughter started sangin (or something). Fist brown cracked me up more than Terrence Howard's perm. Now I don't hate Rumer Willis but she looks just as off as her daddy did decades ago when he was doing those Seagram wine cooler commercials. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3D4U3W2d0LA

  • Malcom Flex

    1 episode was enough to see its trash for bp making us look bad and dysfunctional. Nope.

  • Li

    If you haven't seen Shots Fired, it's very intriguing! A must-see TV show.

  • Li

    Nothing makes sense in that show, but the costumes and attitudes carry it.
    They need to kill the FBI storyline. Anika can't testify against Lucious because they're married and that's why he married her. Kill that storyline.

  • jazzysmith12

    Don't like the gay sh!t.bye!

  • Coffee1st

    Hard to believe some folks are into that. Had a best friend, who was a certified freak, tell me she knew some yt folk who used to defecate on each other. I was16, thought she was lying.

  • Armymom20

    blackish is my show.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    The audience has been diluted. I fear my DVR is going to explode on Wednesdays from so much recording. It records 6 shows at a time and on Wednesdays it's pushed to capacity. Something like 6 black shows were trending on Twitter Wednesday and they are all excellent. If someone doesn't have a DVR they can only watch one at a time. The Quad is probably killing them all with the black college kids. Maybe the ratings will improve now that season one of the The Quad has ended.

  • Coffee1st

    So. Are you saying that the complexion of the man is not what's kinky, but what he brings out of you in the bedroom is?

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    They ruined the Jamal character. He's been reduced to a male hoe with more lovers than I can count at this point and his music sucks royally since the departure of Team Timbo yet he's singing more than anyone else. Hakeem has always been my favorite Empire artist and he barely gets to perform anymore and when he does the music sucks. They need to bring in fresh new producers like Mike Will or the Migos to revive and update the music and they need to chill on the falsetto with Jamal. It makes my ears bleed. Most importantly they need to get it through their thick skulls that we don't care about these guest stars at all.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Power gets to focus on it's core cast because 50 isn't breaking his neck to put all his fake Hollywood friends on the show like Lee is doing.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Amazing!

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Nissan and Drew have no chemistry whatsoever.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    1. Because she is Lucious' ex. I only know that from reading about Nia's character on entertainment sites. It wasn't explained in the episode which made it confusing.

  • WickedTruth

    I still love Empire. I don't care. Would rather watch this than reality tv trash. I feel like many have hopped on the ,"I don't watch empire no more" bandwagon. How can you dislike a show you don't watch. If you haven't watched since season 2 then you don't realize its got good again. And Sandra of course hates any and everything that isn't her select lil Atlanta crew or some white right wing shit.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    How can ppl be turned on with that ish? Get it? Lol. The smell itself would have to be a turnoff.

  • Coffee1st

    I see what you did there :)
    I've learned it's actually an ancient practice.
    Baal Peor is supposedly the false god who demanded this type of worship. The Bible mentions BP once or twice. The Most High was not a happy camper... that's another discussion though.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    You couldn't pay me enough! ?

  • AlwaysPi7

    After the finale of season 1, I was done. Still love Taraji though.

  • Coffee1st

    Don't care if Sandra is lying or not. For me, this show BEEN hit an all time low with me therefore it's been OVER for me with that mess.
    Anybody watch Underground?

  • TooMunch

    You're absolutely right about that. Episode 1 - Season 1, I was shaking my head in disappointment while I was changing the channel to never return again.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    It really shouldve been over after season 2

  • stanley

    The season is kinda boring... The family always fighting and trying to kill each other is getting tiresome lol. I wish they focus more on the music side of the industry and go deeper into that. The entire grandmother story needs to be killed immediately.

  • stanley

    I love the music... lol... They need to go deeper into that, but get artist that can actually sing though ha

  • stanley

    Lee Daniels is just putting his own life on film, as far as being a hoe lol

  • Beverly Reynolds

    I do

  • Notatall

    Love Power

  • Pebbles

    Thanks! For clearing that up!

  • YellowSauce

    I have to admit I forgot to watch and I take for granted that I can just go to demand ... I'll watch it tonight

  • Reina1718

    Thats y they made that fake beef with Nia Long...the show got boring..i got tired of Cookie, the signing etc

  • scentsychick30

    Agreed they are not even good partners in crime. I did not like Rhonda but preferred her over nessa. Their chemistry is way off.

  • let the truth be known

    I stopped watching the first season

  • Miany

    Yes...I like it. I tend to watch stuff that feature Tristan WIlds (at least the first episode) but the first episode lured me in...I will continue to watch

  • Desiree

    Me too..

  • FlyMiss

    Well what do you expect when they took a 3 month hiatus

  • Tlowe89

    I love me some blackish

  • Tlowe89

    Lmao this commercial is terrible, it reminded me of this week's episode of Blackish with Chris Brown in it, put some Uvo on it
    https://youtu.be/PvH82mehuLk

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Prof. Taco Juice

    LOL @ the revised commercial with the chocolate sis, CB looked uncomfortable. I don't know if he's shade-struck but I wouldn't put it past him.

  • Chocolate Bliss

    Loll I loved him on Moonlighting

  • ouzad D

    but when you add DVR and Live + 7 data they still beating everything else in their time period. Do your research Ms. Rose

  • Myopinion4u

    Thank you for the truth.

  • MsSlayla

    I watched it

  • Karen Lee

    Yup, has gone from being a story about a successful, talented black family who overcame so many obstacles to one of drugs, murders, violence, etc. No longer watching it due to this.

  • natalee43

    Why don't people like him singing? He's a good singer!

  • natalee43

    Only 1 main character is gay and that's Jamal...
