"Empire ratings still climbing in Week 3 (swipe)"


  

          

Fox got one.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/tv/2015/01/22/empire-fox-ratings-climb/22168533/

Fox continues to build its Empire.

The hip-hop family soap drew an average of 11.1 million same-day viewers for Wednesday's third episode, up from 10.3 million last week and 9.9 million for its Jan. 7 premiere.

A drama that builds in its second and third weeks is a rare and impressive feat, hinting at long-term success as more viewers discover the show, which stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson.

One factor in its favor: Competing ABC comedies Modern Family and Black-ish (which also features a mostly black cast) aired repeats Wednesday night. But typically new shows' premieres attract their largest audience, while subsequent episodes decline and then settle at a lower number.

Instead, Empire's audience was up 8% week to week, and its young-adult viewership rose 10%. Sixty percent of the audience for its first two episodes was African-American.

Feb 09th 2015

Snipes didn't decline. Taraji demanded Terrence.
Feb 09th 2015

point being: the show was intended to have a dark-skinned lead.
Feb 09th 2015

      Lol
Feb 20th 2015
224
      yeah I kinda side-eyed that shit when it happened too like "really?"
Feb 20th 2015

BTW, the ratings have climbed every week consistently.
Feb 19th 2015

i hope ABC moves Blackish

           no.
Feb 19th 2015

                I agree. They need to move it.
Feb 19th 2015
211
                Watch it whenever you want here.
Feb 19th 2015
213
                     Because I'm _sure_ watching it here will keep Blackish on the air.

I know but
Feb 26th 2015
278
we'll see. in Luscious' case it's coming from a character
Feb 26th 2015
279
...and the point is to change their mind.
Feb 26th 2015
282
this is different dude...
Feb 26th 2015
283
      it's not b/c we don't know that to be true of Andre.
Feb 26th 2015
284
           maybe... but I doubt it.
Feb 26th 2015
285
                their relationship is crazy
Feb 26th 2015
287
it'll be fine b/c Luscious is the villain.

301
      Andre is crazy as hell and I'm pretty sure Lucious knows he's crazy as.....
Feb 26th 2015
303
      the "crazy" should be the point of focus, but it's not
Feb 26th 2015

It's funny because I think he's the worst character
Feb 26th 2015

right, he started out as a complete shitbag now they're trying to redeem...
Feb 26th 2015
311
He's just a kid though.

>she having fun out there. like spader on the blacklist


sees it^^^^^Taraji is making it happen on that show with a wink....

The weak link weirdly enough is Terrence...I read that Wesley Snipes was supposed to get that role but Taraji said she would only do it with Terrence...I would have dug Wesley going HAM on that show. He would have been much more sinister in that role....

GOAT of his era......long live Prince.....God is alive....

i said i didnt like taraji's acting
i love her physical pedigree

do you remember that movie she was in where she was a lesbian and her and her lover killed some guy (i think it was her lover's beard)

it was a lot of nudity in that movie

Is that Howard's fault? I like that passive thuggary. He makes people think that they can say whatever and then they experience that "OH SH**" look when dude Kirks out.

and producers who allow that type of incongruency to exist. All in all though, I do enjoy the show.

I'll record this but still tune in to new episodes of black-ish.

in that I have less then zero interest in watching that show. Already hurts that I'm not a Terrence Howard fan, and even worse I'm sick of watching soap opera-ery stuff like Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder. Judging from the responses on the prior thread on the show, looks like that show is up that alley.

Becoming more and more detached with pop culture as the days go on and I'm not even that close to 40 years of age.

Sorry for the misplaced rant.

Rarely have I ever followed a regular non-reality television show in a long time. But Empire forces me to stop what the Hell I'm doing and watch.

I really hope this show sticks around.

right villian and chemistry though as Much as I dig Terrence Howard he is kinda canada dry on the show in places.

however sex,drugs, music industry lore myth and reality makes a compelling drama and it will stay solid.

truth is being on Network tv is the cherry on top because on cable they might be lumped with 50's show and get a select eye view.

this is a proven formula and it works despite obvious kinks in it.

the show is 2nd tier level type of tv show however timing is key and it works

"A KU KLUX KLAN PRODUCTION IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING"

Make no doubt about it...
this is where the financing for this show is coming from.
The Koch Brothers or Rupert Murdock.
You can defend ‪#‎EMPIRE‬ all you want.
But it takes a far right, "Anti-Obama", bigoted network like Fox TV to put a low life depiction like this minstrel show on the air.
Yet once again, African Americans have been "Bamboozled & Hoodwinked" into sucking down whatever social cripplling, mud-slosh Hollywood wants to throw our way.
Just to see ourselves on Television.
This is a show about blacks murdering blacks, ex-felons from prison running their families, black businessmen operating on the fringes of the law (who just happen to get their operating capital from selling drugs) Pimps of black and white women and pimps of the black community, backstabbing black females who spew mindless ebonics, uneducated young African Americans who can only sing, gossip and dance. In other words the cast of "Empire".
Every degrading stereotype, (sans-black face) that a one hour drama could possibly cram together.
DW Griffith (Ku Klux Klansman and film maker) would have love this writing...
and called it "Birth Of A Hip Hop Nation".

Yeah....I'm on my race man shit...But this^^^^is idiotic trying-to-be-intellectual, weak tea bullshit...

People need to read this Op-Ed piece on people doing too much when it comes to critical break-down of Empire. Not a huge fan of the ol "Hating" fall back....Kinda lazy. But his overall point is valid...

----

Dear Empire Critics, Stop Hating. You Just Don't Get It.
Ernest Owens

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ernest-owens/dear-empire-critics-stop-_b_6594916.html

Dear Empire critics,

In a society that is currently more observant of media and entertainment pitfalls than ever before, sometimes we are too quick to judge. The speedy jolt of a tweet to pass prejudgment, or the too-full-of-assumptions Facebook essay to sound off on a quick observation, continues to reflect a culture that misinforms more quickly than it educates.

To all those who quickly critiqued Oscar-nominated filmmaker Lee Daniels' groundbreaking prime-time drama Empire as nothing more than another television show that is "failing black people": Take several seats and look carefully.

Your misplaced condemnation proves not only that you are showcasing total personal bias but that you are also out of touch.

Critics who pan this show are typically divided into two spheres: They're either advocates of making black television a respectability-politics showcase or they want to improperly use critical race theory.

The former wants programs that showcase blacks in a "proper" light, living behind nice picket fences with both parents in the household and all the children getting along just fine and no "ratchetry" to be found among this well-educated faith-based unit. Basically, these narrow-minded critics secretly desire to recreate The Cosby Show in any way possible, because it makes them feel acceptable under the white perception of a fantasied middle-class black family that ignores the socioeconomic disparity of their peers in America.

The latter also wants to police black imagery. They try to apply very strategic and scholarly approaches to every single aspect of the show. If there are gay black men in the episode, they are quick to misconstrue the inclusion and rather inappropriately cite all the times mainstream programs "emasculated the black man." If they see that a black woman is ever upset or violent, they are quick to act as though the media is in a conspiracy to depict the "angry black woman" trope at every opportunity. They ignore the context of a plot and setting and apply everything they see to their academic prerogative.

What both of these types of critics have failed to realize is that Daniels is a black gay man who is getting the chance to artistically produce his imagination and expression of society for network television to see. This show is not intended to garner white people's approval of our existence -- and if you have been keeping up with the headlines, you should know that your respectability won't save you. It's a prime-time drama for entertainment and reflection, people, not a political editorial or a public-policy initiative. Daniels is a creator who should be given a right to fully explore his cinematic talent without being constrained by the narrow social confines of "making black people look good."

If you are looking carefully at what I and the increasingly impressive millions of viewers are watching every Wednesday night, you will see a multidimensional cast of black characters who all meaningfully contribute to the plot. You will see various depictions of wealth and success, levels of education, shades and body images of black women, sexuality and acceptance, music and style -- a unique and inclusive look at what issues and discussions we are having in 2015.

The show is relevant and bold enough to be presented on network television and tell a tale that doesn't revolve around a white observance. Where else can you find that on television? While Blackish tries to show a black family adjusting in white suburbia, Empire owns the place. While Olivia Pope is chasing after a white president, Empire has their black CEO talking to President Barack Obama. While How to Get Away With Murder (which I am a die-hard fan of as well) has a black leading actress, she still has to put up with the racial confines of her self-identity and vulnerability. Empire has black women who are motivated, complex and self-driven while not having to take into consideration what white people think.

Empire is our Dallas. It transports us into a reality where we can see ourselves as one of the characters on the show. Whether snobby or reckless, gay or straight, dark or mocha, disabled or not, there is more to be seen from just the story line alone. It is one thing to criticize "reality" television that runs the risk of trying to depict black life disproportionately in one light as opposed to a scripted drama led by a black filmmaker who is guiding the plot.

For those critics who argue for diversity in prime-time in one breath but are then quick to tear down a black program that hasn't even made it to its second season, check your reasoning. If we are to demand more diverse programs, we have to also respect the nuance in them as well.

No, every show can't be a black family sitcom or an investigative crime spoof. If we are to actually recognize all aspects of black life, we need to recognize that there should be room for the highly educated as well as the working-class. There have to be shows that have heteronormative relationship dynamics but also gay, interracial ones as well. We need to accept that black programs are not reflections of just our own personal and social views but those of the many multitudes of the diaspora.

Empire is a phenomenal step toward encouraging us to see more levels and faces of the black experience than ever before, and we should be celebrating that alone. If that type of subject matter does not appeal to your taste, then respectfully agree to disagree. But just like the many white-dominated prime-time programs that I see on a regular basis that I don't prefer, you don't see me on a campaign to denounce their existence. Let's give our black filmmakers and actors more respect and understanding than that.

The skill set from your high level of inspection and critiquing of this show would be best applied to the various loopholes in wealth disparity in this country or possible discriminatory laws that have yet to reach the Senate floor, not on an evening program that has not even completed its first season. Do better with your educated efforts and theories analytically.

Here's to hopefully seeing you as part of the high ratings on Wednesday nights.

we can't complain no mo' about not having "positive images of Black people" on television.

Folks were given a direct choice between positive and ratchet, and ratchet won by a landslide.

not smarty-art "define" per se. but what do we really mean? I usually agree with the categoration of RATCHET TV but this show doesn't fit with the others I'd place in the category.

(well, half of one anyway)

Not that Black-ish is the perfect prim and proper show some of these high-toned folks think should exist, but it's a Sunday school lesson compared to the excesses of Empire.

After Black-ish came back from reruns following Empire's debut, their ratings tanked and they went right back into repeats again. They really ought to move the show and put one something they don't expect black people to watch at 9:30 PM

and Empire too. ABC Wednesdays has been bullshitting with the new eps lately, but I would probably watch Black-ish and DVR Empire. my lady prefers the opposite order, I can see it both ways & wish they didn't compete.

There's room for both shows to exist, but not in simultaneous time slots. As I said above, when Blackish came back from reruns, it was buried by Empire's ratings. They went back to reruns and have the first new first-run episode this Wednesday.

One of them needs to move, and it probably needs to be Blackish. Switching with The Goldbergs and moving to 8:30 would be a good look.

Consideration for Black shows, it's like lets manage our scraps and that's such bs to me, maybe Black ish lagged because it went to reruns so soon and ppl didn't know its back

With DVR this shouldn't be such a dilemma

black ish has been very successful and I think it would be fine

Saying something like Black ppl chose ratchet is really offensive too. White ppl are watching both shows as well.

I think it's a great moment that two Black shows on are on the same time and have received great attention

because it's not that simple & there's other factors in play.

However, we'll see what happens. I still think they should move "Blackish" - even if you try to watch both shows, and to be clear, networks still value live broadcast viewing numbers above all else, how many people will really remember to turn over the ABC in the _middle_ of one of Empire's soapoeraesque plot twists?

but I think some of the jokes are questionable for that 8/8:30 time slot.

I would still watch Modern Fam and Blackish over Empire but ABC been bullshitting with new episodes.

Almost felt like they helped Empire on purpose.

246. "could it not be a choice between drama and comedy?"
In response to Reply # 58


  

          

Or music vs. family sitcom?
Or hour vs. half-hour? (This matters because Empire begins at 9pm. Blackish at 9:30. You gonna sit on your hands for 30mins while everyone else watching Empire just to tune into Blackish when you could EASILY DVR Blackish or hit it on Hulu?)

Or Taraji vs. Tracee? (Light skin booty battle but people got sides)

Every TV choice isn't a political statement. Black people come in all types and I don't even know that I'd call Empire "ratchet TV". I lightweight "hatewatch" the show because it's ridiculous and overwrought but so was Melrose Place and Dynasty and every single telenovela. But those shows get to exist cuz no blacks? Hmm.

He would've been high rank in power, but not high rank in morality/good.

I can just see the scenes where Wesley disowned his gay son while Henson came in and rescued him from his evil dad.

There's still an overall light is better than dark theme on this show.

An array of Blk women, many of them heroines in the film

There is also a diverse batch of Blk women on empire and one of the most dastardly women on the show is a white woman

So I'm curious what is making yall say that? I'll try to not jump to conclusions but....

that other post), which include his own admission that he prefers lightskinned black people to all other types...I would go as far as to say that LeeDaniels doesn't care much for black _people_, and given his work he clearly doesn't care for any sort of decorum or tact.

to a gay men's center and walked in and saw so many black women and kids he thought it was a welfare office instead. THey were there for HIV treatment and testing.

I dunno if that was his attempt at a joke, but that's the sort of the thing Lee Daniels says that has people frothing mad.

I barely recognized Raven but I love how this show is bringing Black actors together.

109. "Malik Yoba found out Lucious killed Bunky"
In response to Reply # 98


  

          

or whatever his name was. And now that I think of it, I don't know Malik Yoba's name either. He'll just be "Malik Yoba" from here on out.

Anyway, Malik Yoba found out about the murder and told Lucious he was going to increase security and then he hired a guy to take the fall for the murder.

But that scene with him and the white guy hiring the guy to take the fall was one of the dumbest things in this show. Why did Malik Yoba have to show up to the money drop? The goal is to insulate Lucious from this murder. So all he had to do was to give the money to the white guy who would in turn hire the patsy. By showing up to the meet, Malik Yoba exposes himself. The Patsy asked, "Who am I taking the fall for?". So he doesn't even know. But if the cops start to snoop or Patsy has second thoughts, he can give up Malik Yoba who is a direct line to Lucious.

>- can yall explain what happened with malik yoba
>what is going on there? i missed the beginning

In response to Reply # 111


  

          

he lied and gave Lucious an alibi. I guess Malik Yoba didn't like that he lied and kept it from him because I guess CEOs murdering people and covering it up doesn't look good pre-IPO.

I don't know what dark haired guy you're talking about. The white lawyer? He's the one who found the Patsy to take the fall for Lucious.

Malik Yoba was talking to him saying he thought about quitting his job and all that? I assumed it was some sort of AA/Narco Anonymous sponsor or something

That was beautiful

What I'm wondering is if the relationship between Jamal and his partner was destined to fall because he was blowing up, or because Cookie put that idea out there and they just followed suit.

Overall, great episode. Even though Vernon (Malik Yoba) is schemin', to have a fall guy on tap is a great resource.

This show is a beast!

TV Ratings: Cookie monster builds as 'Empire' rises again for FOX Wednesday


'American Idol' slips, while all three CBS dramas rise
By Daniel Fienberg @HitFixDaniel | Thursday, Feb 12, 2015 11:45 AM


Another week and, yup, more growth for "Empire," which continues to buck any sort of expectations or recent TV blueprint, maintaining FOX's domination of Wednesday even in a week that saw a dip for "American Idol."

Wednesday saw dips for "Chicago PD," "The Middle," "Modern Family" and "Arrow," while "The Mysteries of Laura" and all three CBS dramas rose.

On to the numbers...

Among adults 18-49, FOX averaged a 3.7 rating for Wednesday night, tops in the key demographic. FOX's total equalled the combined numbers for ABC (2.1 rating) and CBS (1.6 rating) in the key demo. NBC averaged a 1.3 key demo rating, followed by the 0.8 key demo rating for The CW on the night.

Overall, FOX averaged an estimated 11.16 million viewers and a 6.8 rating/11 share for Wednesday primetime, far ahead of the 8.87 million viewers and 5.7/10 for CBS for the night. ABC's 4.4/7 and 6.99 million viewers topped the 6.2 million viewers and 4.0/7 averaged by NBC. The CW averaged 1.3/2 and 2.09 million viewers for the night.

8 p.m. - Even with a drop, FOX's "American Idol" won the 8 p.m. hour with 10.4 million viewers and a 2.7 rating among adults 18-49. CBS' "The Mentalist" was second with 9.05 million viewers and third with a 1.5 key demo rating. ABC's "The Middle" (7.91 million and a 2.1 key demo) and "The Goldbergs" (6.95 million and a 2.3 key demo) easily topped the 5.95 million viewers and 1.1 key demo rating for NBC's "The Mysteries of Laura." The CW's "Arrow" averaged 2.59 million viewers and a 1.0 key demo rating.

9 p.m. - "Empire" ruled the 9 p.m. hour with 11.92 million viewers and a 4.7 rating among adults 18-49. CBS' "Criminal Minds" was second with just under 10 million viewers and third with a 2.0 key demo rating. ABC was second in the key demo and third overall with "Modern Family" (9.8 million and a 3.3 key demo) and "Black-ish" (6.93 million and a 2.2 key demo). NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" averaged 6.17 million viewers and a 1.4 key demo rating in fourth, followed by the 1.59 million viewers and 0.6 key demo rating for The CW's "The 100."

10 p.m. - In the 10 p.m. hour, CBS' "Stalker" averaged 7.58 million viewers to the 6.48 million for NBC's "Chicago PD" and the 5.17 million viewers for ABC's "Nashville." In a rare three-way tie, each of the network dramas averaged a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49, with "Nashville" and "Chicago PD" tying among adults 18-34 and "Stalker" leading among adults 25-54.

Jamal to focus on his career. I have a feeling they are gonna introduce a more "famous" gay for Jamal to further add to their crumble

I still like Hakeem. I just really want him to get over hating cookie, he really has no reason to hate her. I get not feeling close to her but the hate just seems odd

So glad Jamal checked him

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

thus far nothing

i mean...we do think hes a bum right?

in fact...basically everyones a bum, INCLUDING Cookie.

so if everyones a bum no ones a bum?

theres a meta thing going on here

& yes i know its television but the reason its resonating is because people on some level vibe w/ the characters

so please go elsewhere w/ the high horsedness


does it really matter?

wonder what bin's doing?

when they make guest appearances. That would be cheesy IMO.

lite bright is foul and I died when she came in and saw the empty snifters. She doubled timed it cause she knew what time it was...

I find myself singing "tell the truuuuuth" at random times and I die laughing every time.

that shit cracks me up.

He, Jamal, wants to "tell the truth" and come out.

He also wants his dad, Luscious, to not be on TV lying to white people about Kid Fo-Fo.

self esteem and settle for lowest common denominator entertainment.

In response to Reply # 165


  

          

and tie in all the other issues we have the television ain't helping at all. (and no one is really watching pbs like that so naw).

Conspicuous consumption and excessive entertainment users with little production, control/ culture to show for it.

So instead of creating twitter you get a bunch of niggas on twitter wasting time talking about Empire.

side note I don't know any niggas running Warner, Universal or Sony.

Who would like to see a show about Clive Davis fucking his artist literally and figuratively while getting fucked?

How about a show where a Jimmy Iovine or Lyor Cohen character is berating niggas in his office on a daily basis and in total control over who gets promoted and who doesn't?

You got slop propaganda on top of all this madness.

Niggas ain't running no Empire in the industry.

Maybe Fisher will tell Luscious about Courtney Love and Luscious will snap...

Someone will kidnap that little girl for money.

There wasn't enough development for Anika drugging Cookie's artist. Anika seemed pretty rationale and professional up until that point (sans the panties scene).

unlike Scandal, which presented itself as a serious drama first season then took a left turn in season 2 and became a full blown laugh out loud soap opera. But pretends that it isn't.

Imagine a manager getting Amy Whinehouse completely sober before a relaunch.

She technically stands to benefit from Elle Dallas being clean, but at the same time she's being petty because Cookie is her manager.

And was it just me, or did Malcolm see the whole thing?

Oldest son is Andre.

No worries, because I didn't know Derek Luke's name was "Malcolm" until this post. Still can never remember Malik Yoba's name. Have no idea what to call Naomi Campbell other than "Naomi Campbell". Courtney Love is "Crackhead". Andre's white wife is "white wife".

Malik Yoba is Vernon
Naomi Campbell is Camilla (not "bae", as we learned this week)
Courtney Love is Elle Dallas (hooray for Closed Captions; otherwise I'd be typing L. Dallas)
Andre's white wife is Rhonda

>And was it just me, or did Malcolm see the whole thing?

but it wasn't clear to me that he saw it go down...
but seeing him at that moment did make me wonder if their is security footage ...
i wonder if that is going to be the angle later down the line

the key to happiness is not being rich;
it's doing something arduous and
creating something of value and then
being able to reflect on the fruits of your labor

but it still doesn't stop them from sabotaging each other at every turn because it's soapy as shit...

and yeah, it looks Malcom watched it all go down. I don't trust him or anyone else on this show.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Yesterday, they pulled 5.1 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic, 12.9 million viewers total, 60% or so Africa-American (more black folks watch Empire than watched the Super Bowl)

The only drama pulling better ratings on TV is The Walking Dead

208. "no."
In response to Reply # 206


  

          

and i can watch it on ABC.com the next day.

but the point is Blackish might suffer in the ratings if ABC doesn't move the show. b/c i'm probably not the only viewer who wants to see Empire and Blackish and forgets that the latter is on while watching the former.

fuck you.

If it's any solace, if people are watching online or on DVR a couple of days later, that still has some ratings value. Live + 3 days ratings are taken into consideration by networks.
