  • Saphistication

    Me too... Real snobbish.

  • Milani

    LOL, I thought it was just me looking at Chris Rock like that.

  • Saphistication

    Vernon's?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I guess last season's writers quit? They probably wanted too much money. This show is awful.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I'm mad.

  • Saphistication

    I'm glad I'm not the only one ???

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Who knew Miss Lawrence could sing?!

    Youuuu make me feel. Miiiighty real!

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Alright Lawrence got his Sylvester on

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    He pimped her out so much who knows.

  • Saphistication

    You're right, forgot about that.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    This puppy is way too relaxed ?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Y I thought the same thing. Wtf is going on

  • missmiami305

    My second time trying to watch Empire and I can't. Turned the channel cuz I'm over the gay agenda being force fed and the other stereotypes. I luv Taraji though. Hope the show continues to excel. I'll stick to POWER

  • Milani

    Jamal is an ass...

  • Hugga Bunch

    I had already named our children, but then Grace came along. Lucky Bish lol

  • Milani

    I can't take it. I tried to give it a chance, but can't. I turned on captions, put on my music and zoned out.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Sophomore jinx.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Don't have cable just Hulu and Netflix, gotta wait till tomorrow lol

    That bad tho? Well damn.

  • missmiami305

    Can someone give a synopsis when it's over and done

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Mr. Lying ain't going out like that Mr. Rock lol

  • missmiami305

    I turned. What happen

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Lucious bought out the whole team.

  • missmiami305

    I'm trying to go cable free by the end of the year. Was it tough? Just go amazon prime, gonna get roku or something

  • Mel

    Forget empire an em I'm watching Law & Order SVU

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Damn I was looking forward to seeing chris rock too

  • Hugga Bunch

    I'm still mad with him holding dude on the ledge like that last season.

  • Saphistication

    Definitely missing that fire and they have Cookie looking super ghetto fabulous. No Bueno.

  • DivineMsM

    Agreed. WOooOOWW. What was that? Evening Ms Sandra & everybody.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I guess I'm going to miss this season. This show is terrible. The acting is terrible. There's no character development. The gay agenda is overdone. The scenes with Chris Rock were pointless. Whose idea was it to cast Rock as a tough guy?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    This season looks very low budget. Is it because they're not getting have the ad dollars?

  • Alana Sims

    I met Tony rock in Chicago. They look different but the same. I called him Mr. Rock and he was cool.

  • missmiami305

    They lost me when chick told Cookie don't worry your pretty little weave.........

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Why is there a sea of people on here!? Cookie is wearing that fit. Did he just squeeze his nibbles? Why you look like Mister Tee?

  • Alana Sims

    He just tryna be the hard worker he is. and he is in love. I hope he keeps things in track

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He's feeling himself because he thinks he's a star.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I hope he was cool with you calling him Mr. Rock.

  • Alana Sims

    That's what I was thinkin b out that kendrick Lamar wanabee in the beginning. like could they not really get the actual rapper

  • Hugga Bunch

    Nope, wasn't tough and I surely don't miss the bill. I'm even thinking about canceling my cell phones, just get a house phone lol remember those?

  • Milani

    it's like they swtiched Hakeem and Jamal's characters...God, Jamal is such an ass....got my blood pressure all up watching Cookie slap him. I wanted to reach through the tv and slap him one last time.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Is it dead?

  • Queen Negus

    I liked it, sorry to disagree Sandra. I don't miss the themed musical scenes. I am a Good Fella Mafia watching bandit. I think I scream when Chris Rock was killed.

  • Alana Sims

    Yes girl he been in it to win it with his voice. I'll be the same because I can sing but I'm in school for cosmetology. I was so happy for him. My brothas girl said Lawrence was cute. My brotha was like, "what?!" lol

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You're good. I didn't know who he was supposed to be. All I know is he sounded lame as *#@^

  • Queen Negus

    Kendrick Lamar is okay but he has lawsuits that's probably tying him up.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It was horrible. The lesbian hitting on every female that moved was so… desperate.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    House phones are telemarketing hell. I cancelled my house phone because of that.

  • Queen Negus

    ???Chris Rock screaming loud.

  • Alana Sims

    Yeah. I mean, that's his last name so...lol!

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    He talked to her like she was Miss Jackson...you just that lady.

    Well...Lee killed the hayle outta this show. All the stars made it cliche to me. I can't believe thisis the way you start the season. Then again, the way it ended was all over the place. Felt like I was watching 6 soap operas in one. Develop a storyline please and then go.

    Glad I didn't get some snacks for this. More like I needed 2 or 3 Soma's for the pain.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I noticed that, too. Jussie is not that good of an actor. His range is poor.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    We can agree to disagree hun.

  • Saphistication

    Lucious still breathes hard like he has ALS... Guess it wasn't the illness or part of the script, he's just a heavy breather ??

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Good evening, hun. After all that hype, the show sucked.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I turned down the volume every time Jussie started singing.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I think that was an overdub. I double that was him singing.

  • Alana Sims

    I think calling him by his last name was more appropriate than calling him Tony when I don't know him personallly

  • Neicey

    Yes. Thank you. It wasn't just me. Just because two men kissing doesn't make good TV. I'm siccud it!

  • DivineMsM

    Like a Hoover! Disappointment. Such a let down.

  • Saphistication

    You ain't never lie... Maybe Lee is saving his coins in case he gets sued by the 50th person...OAN, Love your page long time Ms. Sandra ?

  • Queen Negus

    Good But you watched it!!
    ??. I think Lee does not care if people like it. Doesn't he get paid by the amount of viewers?
    Next week might be less viewers!!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Wait til you hear him sing at the end of every other scene like a bad musical.

  • DivineMsM

    LOL . . . I think the pup and Jen is "TIAD" ::young thug's daughters voice::

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Kept mine for emergencies. Tired of Sprint and their outages. Would be just my luck the cell is out and battery is down. Ever had your cordless to fail? I still have a touch-tone AND rotary.

    Take that!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Marisa Tomei.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I feel that way too. I'm waiting for the ratings reports that show the decline in viewers. I don't think the writers know what to do with this show, hence being all over the place.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Absolutely I was not enthused like I was last season.

  • Milani

    LOL, Lucious said make it loud, and make it long!!!

  • Queen Negus

    ???

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Did anybody miss Vernon or was I just not paying attention because it was awful to me. His singing wasn't on the mark either tonight.

  • DivineMsM

    Recently cut mine and got an antenna. If you are a heavy tv watcher there will be an adjustment. I find I don't miss it. B/w what I find on the internet, and the recaps here w/ the ROSES (THANKS Y'ALL). There's not much to miss.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Again, I think they lucked up with the success of this show and will just ride the wave. I don't think there will be much improvement. The best thing Fox could've done was put the actors with the best acting coaches. Also, they should have hired at least 3 new staff writers and 1 producer from something like SVU or NY Undercover, something.

    Lee Daniels, please look up Reggie Rock Bythewood and hire him as a producer at least. Can someone at the network veto the idea of all these cameos and mini concerts? Tyra Ferrell looked so good.

  • Queen Negus

    It's sad but that was the only scene I liked!!

  • shell

    Power > Empire

  • Hugga Bunch

    I wonder if Lucious likes baby wipes lol

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    He wasn't missed. Jussie has been convinced he can sing. Nope, you can't. Fame is tricky. We were all happy for y'all last season. This is the season fans become more vocal to the actors, producers, etc. I think they'll top out at 12M views average. It will not average 15-17M at all.

    I was hoping they would keep the story line about Chris Rock trying to kill or put a hit on Cookie. They ended that immediately. Huh?

  • Neicey

    Smart move

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    The Empire premiere...I didn't hate it but I certainly did not love it.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Iono San. That sounded like some seasoned queen performance to me. Miss Lawrence felt that, honey. That came deep from the loins. You can't tell me Miss Thang hasn't sung that song at the top of her lungs in the nude at the cut with a hair brush. Nope.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Wait, that was the chick from My Cousin Vnny and a Different World?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I said before the acting was lacking...to put it kindly.

  • Canary Red™

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Not hard wire! My goodness!

  • Hugga Bunch

    That vibrato he did A LOT of last season used to irk my last nerve. And don't let me get started on the moment he channeled 8mile smh

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I turned the volume down when he started singing like a billy goat.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No, they get paid by the commercials. Less commercials means less money.

  • Queen Negus

    Oh OK thanks!

  • Milani

    It was all the cameos that did it for me, besides the storyline being all over the place.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Yeah I hated Pookie got got so immechedly. He was supposed to terrorize them a little bit more.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thanks hun! And why did André Leon Talley look so out of place in the opening scenes?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Agreed.

  • Canary Red™

    They had some good sponsors Windows, Apple and Samsung...I liked the Mary J , Kerri &Taraji commercial ?

  • Milani

    She aged horribly

  • DivineMsM

    All the cameos looked out of place. They just popped up like whack-o-moles. A game of can how quickly can you spot and name the guest star. Random as all get out.

  • Queen Negus

    You saw that too! I said bye Tidal they getting your black dollars!!?

  • DivineMsM

    Hi Canary. They were dropping product names left and right. I think I enjoyed that spot more than anything, lol.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    They didn't switch characters because Hakeem is still an immature little jerk...they just made Jamal an evil azzhole like Luscious. Boo Boo Kitty struggle twerking and munching carpet for business deals...Dre being a sweaty nutbucket...Ms. Lawrence sprawled out on a table singing like that's normal...it was one big ?

  • Canary Red™

    Yes!!!!!!! It's all about that BRAND!!!!!

    Tidal?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It's hard to believe this is the same chick.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I missed the commercial. But I saw the video yesterday.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I sadly have to agree lol

  • iWasteTime

    Sandra you are so kind ?
    We need to get into Don Lemon at a premier viewing with Lee Daniels, Mariah Carey, Whoopi and Maxwell.
    I hope they get drunk and beat him up.
    Maxwell still fine too

  • Canary Red™

    Hey Divine--??

    Yesss, left a and rightI was like oop oop bam!!! They had Apple advertised twice!!!!

  • Canary Red™

    Gotcha?

    They were good - almost felt like the Super Bowl.

  • DivineMsM

    Boo Boo Kitty struggle twerking

    =====
    lol, evening MOD, she tried. Po' thing. She tried.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    And why would CNN send Lemon to cover a concert to free a drug kingpin and murderer?

  • Queen Negus

    Because he was??

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Wasn't that pitiful? Boo Boo Kitty looked like she had arthritis.

  • DivineMsM

    Yup, that be her. Time has marched across her face something hard.

  • Queen Negus

    Chris Rock looked scary?? I keep watching waiting for him to tell a joke ??

  • Queen Negus

    Bout to go rewatch and fast forward to that part??

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I was like, SERIOUSLY? That was the best take of that scene? THAT? ?

  • Queen Negus

    Who was that reporter? Is wasn't Don Lemon was it? Cameo was so fast!!

  • DivineMsM

    Lol . . . you saying she was Taylor Swift-ing it?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    She looks good for 51. I can't hate.

  • DivineMsM

    I think I lowered my head at the scene out of sheer embarrassment.
    Also, glad you are back. You were missed.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    "Boo Boo Kitty struggle twerking and munching carpet for business deals…"

    Lee Daniels was wrong for that.

  • DivineMsM

    with two snaps in "z" formation, CJ. Just UGHHH.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I want to know why they didn't show that scene. They show everything else.

  • scentsychick30

    Boo boo kitty twerking????and Chris rock as frank????beheading deray??

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Vibrato everywhere. I think last season was worse. I see you disagree.

  • Queen Negus

    I have to agree with you on Chris Rock' character, he wasn't scary. He just grew an afro!!

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Wow. I missed this comment, but posted almost identical.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    It was unnecessary, demeaning, and a total 180 from the original character. Frankly ALL of Lee's female characters are becoming more like caricatures at this point. It will get very cartoonish if he keeps what he did in the premiere up.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    After watching this I want to throw my TV and someone else's out the window.

  • Queen Negus

    I guess women in bed is not the same as men in bed or men kissing!!

  • DivineMsM

    Didn't realize she was in her 50s already. Maybe get a little eye work done. These new hi def cameras aint playing with nobody and imperfections. Catches it all and magnify. No more #filters.

Cause I felt the same way during last season, after like the 3rd or forf episode I was HOOKED!! dammit n wanting more every week... I'm sold & I also know Jamal will dial it back in the weeks 2 come, as the public loved his sensitivity n vulnerability.... I'm on board!

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

  • maleorderside

    much better than the last season. as a writer, I sort of knew this was a "clean up my mess from last season" episode. we all have those plots we want to murder before we move on. the c rock drug dealer or whatever had to go fast.

  • MookieFly

    The season opener was actually good. Laughed at the can't even dyke right line. Tv is gonna have me hooked with scream queens, scandal, minority report, etc

  • che’lint

    I heard that lee daniels hired new writers this season. .white writers..

  • Renee Bee

    Try Hulu. Its free.

  • ???

    I can do without the new found facial hair on him but he is DELICIOUS nevertheless!???

  • Fendi

    Clifton Powell was booked, apparently.

  • ???

    I'm annoyed by him already. I wanna see Lucious himself take him down a notch..or two ugh!

  • Alana Sims

    Exactly ha

  • Fendi

    That was how Suge Knight had Vanilla Ice when Suge forced the Al Jolson of rap to sign over his publishing. Empire is the 90's brought back to 2015. From Cookie's outfits to Hakeem's style to Boo Boo Kitty's pixie cut... It's very 20, 25 years ago.

  • ???

    That was AWWWKWARD!

  • Fendi

    Lee and the writers tried to fit 10 lbs of ? into a 5 lb bag. They had a hyped first season, then all of these Hollywood bandwagon jumpers came along and wanted a piece of the pie. They did too much trying to integrate people that didn't fit into the show into the cast. ALT was pointless. Chris Rock didn't play his role well. The shot fired at 50 Cent was goofy. Boo Boo Kitty has too much of a pedigree to attempt to dance like a skrippa. Jamal as the GAYster is completely unrealistic. I understand Marissa Tomei being on the show, but as a lesbian?!. C'mon, man. Do something different.

    I want to see how Adam Rodriguez fits into the cast. The first ep was bland. I hope to see more real actors who actually do TV and are good at it. TV is Adam's home. I can't handle him in films. He isn't there yet, and may not ever get there. I hope the music is better, because it was wack.

  • ???

    Cold move! Loved it! That fool got ready to bounce and and get about his bizness then he was confused .???

    This was disappointing to me. I enjoyed laughing here about the show better than I liked the show.

  • ???

    That squeeze thing was weird..no gross ugh!

    I just think they have done that already and the novelty with the two women has kinda dulled..the men thing seems to be more for shock value..plus we all know Lee like it sooo...

    Tryna look all mafioso lol..was that blood splatter on that bib he had on?

    Oh man. I'm sorry to hear that everyone didn't enjoy the season premiere. I got my life last night hunty! I'm so here for bad boy Jamal. I'm glad they are maintaining the break neck pace. That loser alliance was on my last nerve. Let them run off and start their new company. They can try to compete with Empire, but they can't have it. The first segment with the ear splitting song, the ape suit and random cameos was as bad as it gets, but the rest of the show was on point for me. Glad to have Michael aka Karreuche He back.

  • missmiami305

    Soooooo Rob let his family use him to reappear slowly into the show it seems. Making his way Tweeting pics of Ktran gonna put him on Breezy hit list lol

    I've always found Chris attractive despite his prepubescent build.

    I do. ???

    Ooh, that would be a nice spin.

    Are they not advertising here? I could have sworn the ads were on every site I visited yesterday. Maybe I thought that because of their IG takeover. The ads were everywhere.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Morning...I didn't watch and don't plan on watching it. I was trying to watch Black-ish but my bed was calling me ???.

  • Queen Negus

    Good Morning Bird & Miss?
    Auntie said you promised us a recap. Before I read it I have to say quote" bat Shyte dysfunctional offended everry body( Tom Ford, Run Dmc, Marcus Garvey, Black lives Matter and more) drama less addicted night time soap opera" unquote was off the Hook!! ? Night I pulled an all nighter to get work done. I am off to bed. Morning Roses and Sandra?

  • Queen Negus

    I agree let them run off and start their own company, that part was fake and cartoonish too me. Also too many Cameos as well. But nice recap?

  • jussaying

    Maybe they spent all their money on the cameo appearances. Season 2 opener was anticlimactic.

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

    She did? I did send it to her around midnight. I have to watch the show a couple of times before I write it.

  • Just Keya

    Did anyone see Peety Pablo on Empire last night. HAhahahahaha

  • Just Keya

    I did like Empire last night, but I was a bit annoyed by Jamal. Now not too long ago your father did not really want to deal with you. When Cookie popped up, and was so about Jamal, all of a sudden the dad was all interested and crap. Gave you the company. smdh. Now you all "Yall betrayed him" Sir good bye. Where was all that for him when he left yall momma high and dry in a jail cell?! And Cookie DID make a scarifce for all of yall. SO you not trying to hear that, to me is disrespectful in a way. But Whoop that Trick still love Cookie so we will see how this gonna go. And Boo Boo Kitty is a hoe for sure. She done slept with the dad, the son and now the yt lady. FOR MONEY. Child bye. I also loved Chris Rock in that 2 second serious roll.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Yes it would be.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    They don't

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    How you gone be tough as ice then cry. My baby wasn't built like that and I hate to see it Bird lol.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol

  • OvertheMississippi

    True dat! LOL

  • Use_Coasters_aka_Sol_88

    Lmao yeah!
    So unnecessary, knowing darn well he threw a touch of season all on top

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

    He has to get used to it. He knows what Lucious requires and what's required to run Empire. It might hurt but it has to be.

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

    Done and done. I tried to make it short and sweet.

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

    I would have liked for them to have used the actor who played Frank Gathers last season. He's a good actor and a better tough guy.

  • missmiami305

    I wanna watch that. I love Traci. Gonna try to catchup and watch season 1. But it looks like a great family show

  • missmiami305

    Poor Shawn died like a punk lol

  • missmiami305

    How was Scream Queens? I like Keke Palmer

  • Hugga Bunch

    When Suge handled Ice, I'm sure he executed well. Jamal looked silly as hell, if you go back to the scene and watch, his arms look like they are struggling. It's actually awkward and not believable. The only brother I could see pulling a Suge on a ledge, is Dre. Hello elevator scene lol, dude can get scary real quick.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    Me either...don't believe the hype.

  • jussaying

    Who is Rob...

  • Genia Gouch

    I totally could not take Chris Rock seriously. For me, he will always be Pookie "It just keep calln me" dope fiend. A richer, sober, cleaner version, but Pookie nonetheless.

  • Genia Gouch

    This scene ^^^^^^^^ was stupid.

  • jussaying

    Scream Queens was so good! It was a little overkill for me though - 2hrs with the pilot and the first episode. I think they should have just left it with just the pilot bc my attention span is next to none. Keke was good when she first appeared, but I don't like how the first hour she was normal and then by the second she was a caricature. Because Emma's character called her a 'hoodrat,' the next hour she suddenly had on doorknocker earrings (who the hell still wears them?? that trend returned back in like 2007... and faded away just as quickly..) and a damn kangol. When before she was just in some reg threads. Other than that she was fine..

    I think Emma Roberts did an amazing job being the bitchy stuck-up boss. And she had some great one-liners; I like the mean girl tropes they suck in there. Nick Jonas' character is also really funny as is whatever character plays his best bro. Quote of the night by Chad: "--sighs deeply-- Are you going to touch my weiner?" Nick Jonas: "No I promise I won't touch your weiner this time!" Also all the deaths were funny and the black chick (whose name I can't remember) from Reno 911 is HILARIOUS. Lea Michele's character also is super funny; I didn't recognize her with the headgear on until hour 2.

  • jussaying

    I tried to watch Black-ish when it first debuted but it was really stiff for me. The humor reminded me of the kind you'd see on a Nickelodeon or Disney channel show - you know, the over exaggerated and overacted dumb humor that you can see coming a mile away. I really love Tracee too, but I couldn't get with it. Maybe I'll give season 2 a go. I like Modern Family's humor style (dry, sarcasm, and a bit quirky) over this.

  • TeeTee

    I have a lot to say today :

    1.) I did watch it last season but TeeTee2 did (at 9 yes I know)
    2.) I could tell in the first 5 minutes that it was garbage.....
    3.) I could have made Cookie outfit (I'm going to grab my sewing machine out of storage bc today's fashion world seems to be an easy lick now)
    4.) If AIDS did not kill Magic - EJ will!
    5.) Can somebody tell me why they put Donnie Mcclurkin

    6.) I actually liked Chris Rock and his 40 min roll

    okay I will not watch it again butt.... Rosewood was okay
    and they wrong for put for premiering Blackish at the same time

  • jussaying

    !! I meant to watch Rosewood.. what is it about again? All I know is Morris Chestnut and I'm here for him. I also want to see Minority Report with Meagan.

  • Nala Shakur

    All this did was find a way for FOX to talk about homophobia in Hip Hop. Smh I feel like its only pushing the agenda further. Too much in your face with the gay shit--not tht I have an issue with (openly) gay ppl. But all this downlow shit in the hip hop industry i ain wit it. Ppl have a right to not want to see something that goes against their beliefs. Aside from the overload of cameos, it was just too much in the first episode. Idk what was more awkward..the two men kissing scene...or boo boo kitty trying to dance "/

  • MS PEACHES

    I liked Megan in her last series Deception. I still want to know who stuff that woman in the suitcase.

  • jussaying

    !! Yassss girl...based on all the crap that gets greenlighted for a second season I thought Deception was deserving. Meagan is actually a good actress and I was sad to see that go. I was also mad about that show Larenz Tate was on as a doctor on USA.. Started with an R.

  • MzApple

    I liked minority report as well them twins are fine..especially the evil one

  • MzApple

    they are showing it again tonight

  • MS PEACHES

    I was all over the place, but they had to start somewhere. I glad the ball is rolling. I guess next week the white chick will have her baby. Lucious and Cookie will hook up.

  • Jessica

    Wayyyyyyy too much homosexuality on the season 2 premiere. I guess Lee Daniels is going to make sure the homosexual agenda is in our face. If the show stays this way....count me out. I'll give it two more weeks, if there's no change, I'll stop watching!

  • MS PEACHES

    Dead wrong. LOL

  • TeeTee

    he is a medical examiner who goes to Miami to work and ends up working with a detective... I'm getting a Castle kind of feel...

  • MS PEACHES

    Damn you.LOL

  • Vixen

    This show started falling apart in season 1 when they focused way too much on the homosexuality. Lee Daniels has way too much going on in an episode. I mean I could not get why they cast Chris Rock as a jailbird wanna be hard azz when all I can see is him in New Jack City trying to buy one chicken wing, working for Nino Brown, getting hooked on dope and so on. I understand sex and ratchetness sells but can I finally watch a show that focuses on something else as the center/focus? I see why I don't watch tv, I only tried to help out my brothers and sisters with ratings but back to reading I go because reading is fundamental.

  • MS PEACHES

    Why is her back twerking and not her butt?

  • Sexy CJ

    @ Shawn...........lol.....

  • Sexy CJ

    Lol.....

  • Nala Shakur

    Yea it didn't have that same feel from the first season.

  • Nala Shakur

    They were just trying to have all the cameos they could get

  • Wildcat34

    I have yet to watch an episode of Empire. The barrage of posts I view on Facebook when this show is on is beyond annoying!

  • MookieFly

    Campy as hell but I like it. It's aimed at a younger audience than American Horror Story but it gives me a good chuckle so I'll keep up with it for now. Ryan Murphy doesn't know how to keep a good story afloat so we will see how long it last

  • Jozie723

    I loved it..... it was a good episode to me. Music sucked but other than that I was pleased.

  • DivineMsM

    Lol! you are right. Straight plank. Good morning to you and all.

  • Jozie723

    He did surprisingly well.... uncomfortable scene though. My husband is frustrated with the male kissing on TV

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    sigh...the first half I watched...I was like,meh! the cameos are an overkill... sophomore jinx coming, maybe? the 2nd half I turned to watch Blackish, now that was funny.

  • Jozie723

    I think his response was adequate... he's team Luscious. Everybody can't be team Cookie. I liked the way they showed him being vulnerable after he played tough guy with his mom. I gasped when he said "Are you done lady".

  • MookieFly

    Yaaas twins! Mhm when one pearl necklace ain't enough! I want this to work for Megan. I feel like Scifi might be the right genre to keep her on tv. Lord knows baby girl has tried several times before

  • MzApple

    I really hope this works for her as well she is so pretty and genuinely a sweetheart. I liked deception on nbc with her in it I don't know why they took it off. Praying this is a success for her

    I recall him (her?) singing on RHOA. The voice sounded pretty good

    The show was everywhere last night. I looked forward to seeing it but was very disappointed it left me like huh what just happened.........IJS

  • Brown fields

    I said the same thing

  • Saphistication

    I need to get with Power because it was all over the place with too many senseless cameos. Trying to appease everyone. What made the show good was that a lot of the actors/actresses were new, now...... ?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I suppose yours is the review Fox would pay to keep from getting out if you were part of the Hollywood mix. I will watch the show, but I want a show of substance, not one of shenanigans and cameos pieced together with faulty literary content.
