TV's #1 rated soap opera musical, Empire, returned last night to mixed reviews.

Most reviewers are bought and paid for by Fox TV, so their reviews are unreliable. The more honest reviews can be found on social media where most viewers panned the show's script as overdone and over-the-top.

Season 2 opened with a flurry of pointless cameos by pop culture notables such as Vogue's Andre Leon Talley; activist and radio host Al Sharpton; CNN anchor Don Lemon;.singer Kelly Rowland; and RHOA alum Miss Lawrence doing his best Sylvester impersonation.
