Last night my guilty pleasure and they pulled out all the stops with guest appearances Naomi Campbell, Cuba Gooding, and Gladys Knight, so of course the ratings soared through the roof…. This was only the third episode.
According to TV by the numbers.com
Empire scored a gigantic 4.3, up 8 percent from last week’s 4.0 adults 18-49 rating and ranking as the highest rated drama telecast in over a year. The last series to grow week-to-week for its first three episodes was FOXs short-lived The Finder back in 2012 However, that was not a high-rated show. Empire’s growth out of a strong premiere is very unusual in the DVR era. Grey’s Anatomy grew week-to-week in viewers for its four episodes.
I wonder if ABC will move Blackish, because that’s my show as well…. Too bad we can’t watch both at once… But congrats to Empire and the entire cast…
