Fox Network is in panic mode after Empire's TV ratings took another tumble this week.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the once popular soap opera musical lost another 1 million viewers on Wednesday night.

From Hollywood Reporter:

Though the series still easily won Wednesday night, in both the key demo and total viewers, it slid another half of a point among adults 18-49 for an average 4.6 rating. The Fox drama also averaged 12.2 million viewers. Empire has seen its time-shifting take rise with each same-day fall since the lofty premiere, so it's becoming apparent that it currently isn't nabbing the appointment viewing status that it had during its freshman season.

Insiders whisper that Fox Network execs are ignoring the live viewer ratings and focusing instead on the artificially inflated DVR ratings.

Rap mogul 50 Cent blamed Empire's drop in ratings on "too much gay stuff."

At this point, it looks like nothing short of firing Lee Daniels will save this sinking ship.

    I still don't get the hype surrounding the hip hop soap opera Empire on Fox TV. Sure the season finale finished with a respectable viewership of 17 million, but so what? The Cosby Show and A Different World pulled in triple the viewers of Empire on any given week. I don't recall the fervor surrounding those TV ratings.

    Is it because Empire is a part of Hollywood's gay agenda TV shows? The Walking Dead has higher TV ratings than Empire. Do we discussed that show's ratings every week? Somebody clue me in.

    BET OWNed by Tyler Perry and Oprah

    Last year, TV Titan Oprah Winfrey approached acclaimed film director Tyler Perry to help save her failing OWN Network, and he has delivered in a big way.
