Empire Canceled on Fox


Last week Fox announced the cancelation of Lee Daniels' hit night time drama "Star [click here if you missed that]."

Now "Empire" has suffered the same fate...

According to reports Empire's upcoming sixth season will be its last.

Actor Jussie Smollett, who was written out after being accused of staging a hate crime in Chicago [click here if you missed that] is NOT expected to appear in season six.

Lee Daniels is probably about to have Jussie killed. Its wild how somebody else doing something so stupid opens you up to all kinds of scrutiny. A whole lot of folks just lost their checks.

Good riddance! Empire's writing's been a mess since Lucious was held captive on some of that Kathy Bates Misery sh*t. js

5th Principle of Cause and Effect. I have yet to see one episode, when it first came out the trailer was banging but from what I heard on the blogs, the show just became too ridiculous to watch. Ms jussie lying ass little stunt, got a lot of people's career f*cked up, his political sugar daddy should have schooled his side piece. Now he will most likely end up a blood sacrifice to appease the Satanist vibrating on the Principle of Polarity where extremes meet, I don't think those paradoxes will be reconciled, as the collective public is too awake. Lee is going to have to have to make big sacrifices to stay in the good graces of his satanic masters. This shit is better than any Mexican novella *goes to make coffee*.

I don't think this it totally due to Jussie and his shenanigans, although I'm sure it was a big factor. Just looking at how the show and the characters have changed season to season it seems Lee Daniels was winding the show down with the start of this past season. I've enjoyed Empire and look forward to the finish.

11:26 .You've got more patience than me. I once liked the show but hated the gay storyline because it focused on stereotypes and not a real person.

It's for the best. The show probably should have been on a cable channel. I hate to see so many black actirs lose their jobs. Lee Daniels should have listened to the criticism and toned down all that extra gay sh*t.

Part of the reason the show was cancelled was because Henson and Howard had Jussie's back and Daniels couldn't decide if he believed Jussie or not.

Hollywood does not play like that.

Had they kept their mouths shut (the way they did on Blackish after Kenya Barris told ABC to kiss his black ass) then they'd probably still have a job.

I'm not sure Daniels even has a future in Hollywood after this, but I really don't care. I toss his ass in the same bin as I do Tyler Perry.

When is Queen Sugar coming back? Now that's what I wanna see.

For a few years now, this has been in the making. Jussie doing the fool, just made the process easier.

Like some of you all, I love the show at the onset. However, Daniels was going to "shove" his life style on us and in excess too. I think I had enough, when a scene between Jamal and a guy were in a tunnel. The guy was getting ready to go down on Jamal but he pushed him off of him. Too much and I was pretty much done back then.

Message to all gay tv show writers and producers. Focus on good content and not pushing the gay agenda. We get it already.

Hmmmm, it specifically say cancelled on Fox. Sounds like it could be picked up by another network.

Who cares put Star Back on. Nobody told Disney/FOX to cancel that shit. Empire should’ve been cancelled after the first season

Everyone saw this coming. Even Lee!!!!

Here's the real question WE ALL KNOW Lee and a select few others were in on this lying stunt but why go through with it? Why did they think this would work? Were they all high at the time because I'm certain they party together. I guess a few of them thought Jussie would sober the next day and all the antics of the night before swept under the rug like many a nights. The craziest thing in the world is that Jussie really thought his story made sense. LOL a little scratch under his eye and no bleached clothes. That ninja STAY HIGH!!!

I think we all have our theories as to “why” the show was cancelled, but one thing is for sure, Jussie has NOTHING to do with Lee Daniels losing two shows. However, Jussie will be used as the “scapegoat” because folks are too scared to talk against the big boys at the network. Execs could care less about Jussie and so this is NOT about him at all. The truth is the cancellation of Black shows with descent ratings happens all of the time.

In the 1990’s, the WB network had the best Black t.v. show line up ever! Then one day they were all cancelled JUST LIKE THAT! Happen to others shows too. No goodbye, farewell, or anything. Often times Black talent is used by networks to draw viewers and once the viewers come the networks get rid of the Blacks and whiten things up. They will also give them the boot for wanting better pay equal to white actors.

So, at NBC Steve Loss 2 shows to be replaced by two White women. At Fox Lee Daniels lost 2 shows but I am not sure who will replace him yet? They are about to whiten things up. I don’t like Lee Daniels at all because he is a demon from hell. Good riddance! I hope he never works again because he is just pure filth. Steve got his come upping’s for leaving wife 1 for wife two and then leaving wife 2 for wife 3. He is also getting it back for cooning and betraying Bernie Mac.

So, we are not losing two icons, even though Steve is 1 million times better than Lee. Steve and Lee are just being reminded “who” is the BOSS? Many don’t know Ellen DeGeneres executive produces Little Big Shots, and so of course a gay white lady will help another White lady take a Black man’s job. White code calls for that. When Steve spoke out about losing his talk show, they paid him back by taking his other show too. Now that there is supremacy. You open your mouth and I will take ALL of your shows even if they are rated # 1. Wonder how he feels about Monique now? Lol Plus, they may have gotten rid of Steve because Marjorie’s man is writing a tell all book? Lol Can’t play Uncle Steve on t.v. when your wife married drug kin pins.

Cast supporting Jussie's idiocy didn't help.
