Empire Slips a Bit in the Ratings


Fox's hit drama Empire slips in the ratings for the first time ever…

According to reports a respectable 13.7 million viewers tuned in for the second episode of Empire season 2, a 19% drop from last weeks season premier. DVR totals not included.

The really bad news is reserved for Blackish on ABC who's second episode suffered a 33% drop from last week, pulling in only 6 million viewers.

Knew it... relying too much on guest appearances and cameos.
Storyline is suffering and unrealistic.

Fox is playing. Now today Sleepy Hollow season starts, but they know damn well they're trying to tank that show airing it on TGIT night. They need to rearrange their days for Empire, and Sleepy Hollow.

Thats because Empire is kind of all over the place now...

Its kinda unrealistic at this point.

I still love the show but they are getting too caught up in guest appearances so the story lines are lacking...

All of a sudden Luscious body guards became professional producers smh

The numbers will go up. Last week the first report was 16 million then it went up to 22 million. I knew once the ratings reached 22 million, it'd be hard to top that and I don't see that happening.

^^^^^ There are lots of rappers who made songs via the phone while locked up. I know Gucci Man and Mac Dre made an entire albulm over the phone while locked up and a few more. C Murder made an albulm AND a music video while locked up, had those officials pissed when they found out!

Everyone knows that lots of prisoners get to use computers in jail; they have emails, be on Facebook and prison dating sites and shit. It would have been more realistic had he did it over the computer.

The writing has suffered and their is no cohesiveness between episodes. It doesn't flow it feels rushed and the music sucks so the actors really can't sell their performances. Also people are over the gayness of it but worst of all is Sissy Terrance looks soft now and ain't no rapper and Cookie's drunk ass watery eyes are so horrid I understand why the camera won't stay on her. My husband said she looks like a pug with parvo. I say the pug looks better. Ouch

I agree it's all over the place and all these guest appearances are getting ridiculous. I will watch one more time to see if they pull it together and then after that I'm gonna see if I can get into the new show Rosewood with Moriss Chestnut.

Cookie is hard on the eyes, sorry. She doesn't have the right sex appeal to hold a leading role.

I love it - I watch it to be entertained and that's what it delivers. I know it's TV, so I look over the obvious. When I want realistic, I watch documentaries

Where do you think the wrters got the idea of Lucious recording in jail? From real rappers. Duh! It's been done before in real life. Once the count DVR recordings the number will go back up BUT it will still be less than last week. I almost didn't watch last night and i'm not sure if I will tune in next week. This show is going down. I don't care either way.

Last night's episode was awesome! I was not that impressed with episode 1 season 2, but last night made up for it! Im so glad it didn't disappoint!

The reason for the decline is Jamal's gay storyline!!!! Make him straight!

Empire is doing way too much and they'e going to crash and burn. I give it one more season and it's done. Too many guest stars, not enough focus on the music. Also some don't like the gay agenda.

Timbaland lost his touch the music is corny and feels dated and it's a musical you want to put on mute. Cookie aged to old mother hen status in one season. I can't watch her. Between the gay porn and the awful leading characters this show won't make it.

I have said this all along

She needs to watch old episodes of Dynasty or Falcon Crest
Basically take acting lesson from Joan Collins or Donna Mills

Cookie is brutal to Watch, no mystic, little acting skills and just so ghetto
Maybe as mentioned before , Niggas and Fat black women luv this show

Libra girl said...

I love this show but I hate the clothes Cookie wears.

I actually liked last night's episode. When Sleepy Hollow, The Walking Dead or Z Nation comes on, I skip over the channel because the shows don't interest me. I don't understand why the niggas and fat black men and women that complain about the show, can't skip the fuck over it. It's that simple, duh!!!

I personally think Vivica Fox could have pulled off the role of Cookie...she has a little more sex appeal than Taraji and also has that sassy hood/street factor as well.

I guess that puts you in the 'niggas' category as you've obviously watched enough of Empire to draw such conclusions on the role played by Taraji Henson.
I myself have never been able to endure more than a minute of this programme which is why i can't really comment on it, but boy do you get on your soap box about it and how old are you 53 or therebouts? Citing Joan Collins in Dynasty as some sort of benchmark?!
What a rather unfortunate excuse for a man you are - spending life sitting around watching soaps and blowing off steam on womens' gossip blogs.
Shouldn't you be out in the garage tinkering with cars or better still out on the Harley?

Yes, this will be the last season for Sleepy Hollow. No way it will do good numbers on Thursday of all days.

@7:04
Blogs/Social Media/Comments are not age-specific
Your rant makes no sense

Old Shows are on the re-run all the time
I quoted Joan Collins so that make me 53?
If i quoted Jesus Christ , that makes me ???

Let me guess
You have to be 15 to criticize Love and Hip Hop?
You have to be 16 to criticize Empire?
You have to be 19 to criticize Drake or Hip Hop?

Anyways, go sit down somewhere and only comment on the subject of the Blog rather than someone else

You sound like those Angry Black females who dont like comments and then gets personal
Shocked you didn't call me Gay or Black Woman Hater

Get your GED and comeback to comment on Blogs

7:32 Shut yo fag ass up! You've embarrassed yourself enough for one day today - owning up to watching Dynasty reruns in your spare time (bleurrgh!). Who are you Rupaul?
A man's man you certainly are not.
Talking of 'angry black women', would you care to explain why you use female gossip sites to vent all your angst on? No i thought not!
No real man would go on blog sites gossiping about soaps.
Like i said shouldn't you be out shooting hoops with yo boyz or out on the harley? Answer the damn question you bitch ass punk and yea the reason i brought your age into my last comment is because no man under the age of 45 unless of course he had homosexual tendencies would be banging on about Joan Collins and Dynasty.

'This is a BLOG

Its funny you should say that because judging by your manic ramblings on here anyone would think this female blog site was some sort of carthatic release for yourself or is it all just a cry for attention?

Either way its plain to see you've got some issues there boy.
Laters!

Don't nobody wanna see lee Daniels gay Soiree, shits unbelievable I was expecting to Lucius to get out but not like he did that was too fake, should've been more believable still love cookie tho

I'm sorry, but nothing is going to top Season 1 of this show. I don't think they are going to be able to live up to the hype that was created by that first season.

That being said, I will still DVR and watch (I hate commercials!)
