Wednesday’s nights airing of FOX’s uber-hit series, Empire continued its unbelievable performance in the ratings department!

The series once again gained viewers and extended its run of unprecedented ratings growth hitting a series high in viewership for the fifth straight week since its premiere and as the night’s No. 1 program in key demos! According to Variety, and the national estimates from Nielsen, “Empire” (4.7 rating/14 share in adults 18-49, 11.9 million viewers overall) was up a tick in the demo while gaining about 400,000 total viewers to hit new highs in both categories.”

Since bowing with 9.9 million viewers on January 7th, the soap has grown with each week: 10.3 million, 11.1 million, 11.4 million, 11.5 million and now 11.9 million.

Last week, it became the first program in the history of Nielsen’s Meters (going back to 1991) to grow in total viewers with each of its four episodes following its premiere.  And last night, it added to its record.

What do you think of this record-breaking ratings performance by Empire! Why is the show striking a chord with you, and viewers across America? Share your thoughts below!

Empire is easily the best scripted drama on television; I thoroughly have enjoyed this series week-to-week. And I cannot wait to see what else comes out of this fantastic series.

EMPIRE Season Six Premiere: Andre Is In For A Shocker

When Fox’s music biz soap opera, Empire returns for its sixth and final season (kicking off this Tuesday, September 24th, 9/8c) the opener features cancer survivor, Andre Lyon (Trai Byers) in charge of the Lyon dynasty – with his dad, Luscious completely MIA.

But when addressing the company staff on some changes within the structure of the organization and his plans, he is stunned when none other than Tracy (Amanda Detmer), that’s previously referred to and known as “White Tracy’” (due to her crack addiction), shows up with a soapy bombshell during the meeting.

The mother of Andre’s deceased half-brother, Jeff Kingsley saunters in and announces, “I’m Empire’s newest co-owner!”   And with that, season six begins its arc with a battle for control that will be front and center.

Tracy wants payback and has an ax to grind.  In the season 5 finale, she told the Lyon clan that her decision to donate her son’s heart to save Andre would come with strings attached, but did anyone expect she would go this far?  Yup!  Watch the teaser below for Tuesday’s night’s first episode of the  final season.

Meanwhile, the season six key art featuring series stars: Taraji P Henson (Cookie) and Terrence Howard  (Luscious) in the same position as the famous scene in the motion picture Titanic has with it the saying “Rule to the end”.   Who will be left standing when the series comes to its exciting and emotional conclusion?
